See & Saw. Hee & Haw. Ohhh & Ahhh. This blog is an ever-growing collection of curios, oddities, and astonishing visual treats. Honest.
That demo was amazing. The applications are endless, especially the tie in with flickr and the Notre Dame with the points of reference. Amazing.JDH
Hey JDH! Combining points of references with numerous images is incredible!Plus, being able to navigate with huge files without having to wait for the computer to re-load will be great fun!
I found this and thought you might like.http://www.popsci.com/popsci/environment/40ab9ef1a8814110vgnvcm1000004eecbccdrcrd.htmlJDH
Hey JDH!I checked out this link; quite a few incredible ideas! I really liked the long tubes to pacify waves. Many of the local mountains make snow to prolong the season or to help a poor one, so the replenishing the ice idea was intriguing. I'll have to go back and explore the site some more. Thanks for pointing me towards this site.
You're welcome.Have you been to treehugger.com, just went there today and I real enjoy the news briefs. Oh and the Popsci has a DIY solar panel for charging things like cell phones and ipods and the like. Kinda cool. Oh and homepower.com is very homeowner educational, very informative. And I'll stop.JDH
Thanks JDH! Lots of great info on both sites! Don't stop, I really enjoy the links!
Have you seen this http://www.chilipepperapp.com/Imagine if it really works, and imagine if every home had one installed. Save a lot of water.JDH
Hi JDH! I've only skimmed the site but it appears like a system that we investigated. The unit would have saved tons of water and energy but the device had yet to have official Government approval. I understand, that it has since has been improved and best to be installed on new homes. It's great to see these kinds of technologies coming available. Are you considering it?
I would like to, if it works. I'm a little skeptical.I'm pricing solar panels and geothermal exchange heat pump, they are very expensive. It is almost not feasible. Very disappointing.JDH
I'm sure prices will come down as more people choose these kinds of alternatives.I guess you have to factor in the cost and weigh that against the energy savings over 20 years.
JDH: Here is another supplier of 'tankless' waterheaters:http://www.boschhotwater.com/StartPage/BoschHotWatercomHome/ElectricProducts/PowerStarAE115AE125/tabid/395/Default.aspx
OOOhhh! Bosch stuff is nice. But we won't have propane or natural gas, and I had heard that the electrical Hot Water On Demand is considered counter efficient.JDH
http://www.greenhomeguide.com/http://www.greenhome.com/Here are two more sites that I've been visiting lately, lots of interesting info.JDH
http://www.cleanairgardening.com/And one more, I'm looking at the Scotts Classic reel lawn mower.JDH
http://www.instructables.com/I found out how to make a sandblaster using baking soda instead of sand.JDH
Thanks JDH! Lots of great info on these sites. The 'instructables' site is very cool. I learned how to make microwaveable popcorn with a paperbag!
http://www.instructables.com/id/E6A5EZ3F4IX6GRX/?ALLSTEPSThis is pretty cool, I'm going to try it. I love how the comments section only add to the design or function of the idea.Here is a very cool site, look back through several pages -http://materialicio.us/Creatively crazy and insanehttp://materialicio.us/2007/08/17/accordion-house-24h-architecture/to the very coolhttp://materialicio.us/2007/08/17/san-marcos-guest-house-chris-krager-krdb/Sawsee, thanks for the friendship over the past year.JDH
I'm making this one -http://www.instructables.com/id/EJKWL68DVIEZTBAJO1/?ALLSTEPSJDH
Thank as well, JDH! It's great we have so may similar interests!I could not get to the 'materialicios' site. I tried a few different things, but it says that their account has been suspended. I'll try again later, it may just be temporary. This is a link off the 'instructable' link/article you gave me. http://www.scdworld.com/shop/deliver.cfm?page=handbook I'll try to find another post about a Philipino organic farmer too.
Here are a few links: http://www.greatday.ca/http://www.herbanafarms.com/Herbana2/Products.htm This link is to a farm that has 'apprenticeship' courses. I would love to do this! http://www.herbanafarms.com/Herbana2/Modules_and_facilities.htm
you've got to see this.http://www.treehugger.com/files/2007/08/leds_grow_on_tr_1.phpVery beautiful.JDH
Hmmmm, my post never 'posted'...Any ways, yes, very cool lights! I've posted it above. That leaf-shredder idea is great! And much quieter than a gas one! I forget the stats, but it is something like: 1 hour of mowing with a gas 2 stroke engine, emits the same pollution as a 100,000 mile (tuned up, 4 cyl.) cardrive.
I'm not sure I understand the Bokashi, it helps with composting but does it occur naturally in nature? Do you have to use the buckets or can you use it a 4'x4' composting bin? Is it microbes? I'm intrigued.JDH
From what I understand, Bokashi encourages microorganisms that break down material by fermentation rather than composting. Composting can smell, if the right balance of nitrogen to carbon is not maintained. Bokashi is typically used for under the sink. And yes, Bokashi encourages natural microbes that exist in nature. The finished product of bokashi can be diluted and sprayed onto plants to help fight disease, or poured around a plant for nutrition and disease prevention. I have not tried to make it, but you can make it with milk or rice water. The liquid is placed outside in a 'healthy & vigourous' part of the garden, and slightly covered to keep out insects. After about 1 week, airborne bacteria (the good kind) begins to grow on the liquid. It is strained and molasses is added to 'feed' the bacteria. After about one week it can be diluted and used for fermentation or as a spray on plants.
