Smart Green Infrastructure: How To Grow Sustainable Cities

This is very interesting how cities such as LA can be changed for the better. Less water run off and more water retention.

Save some $$$

This is the beginning of my blog about frugal ways.

Today's economy is looking pretty bleak and it is a good time to write about frugality.

Sorry, this was meant to be posted in my new blog. Experiments in frugal living. Posted by Picasa

Full moon setting this morning when I went out to feed.
This is my front circle. The trees in front of the house.

I saw this little door house on Youtube and thought it would be such an easy way to make a green house or a little cabin. French doors could be used or sliding glass doors. The roof could use a recycled sliding glass door as well for a green house. (?) I have a number of old standard doors here too. The slant roof could also be used to catch rain water. If it were being used as a small cabin one or two walls could be solid and a small shower and bathroom with a composting toilet could be built outside the solid door section. Look below.

Breakfast this morning. My new favorite food is cantaloupe with pomegranate
seeds. I'm finding pomegranate seeds on almost anything enhances the flavor
but with cantaloupe it's just delicious. Rest of the plate is steamed brocolli and
carrots with a 2 egg omlet. Nice bright colors and healthy.
I have a few pomegranates this year but I'm hoping in the years ahead I'll
have enough to sell. They are selling in the stores now for $1. -$2.50 each.
They are also getting more popular now due to the fact they are so high
in anti-oxidants.

Andrew, pitching.
I have a great camera but I couldn't figure how to make it zoom in and out
so I could get close ups. I said something to my son just as I left and so now
I know. You'll have to click on this picture to get a big shot. Maybe I'll even
be able to get some shots of my birds and burrowing owls now. Good news.

My daughter and I drove to Las Vegas yesterday. It's an 80 mile drive to meet
up with my son and two grandsons for a baseball tournament. This is Andrew
who was in the tournoment with his unimform and equitment. It was a beaut-
iful day as is often the case in the fall. It's always fun to cheer on the team.
Andrew made some good plays and pitched part of the game. They didn't
quite win but played hard.
