Solar-powered Canals – Are They the Future in California?

Governor Brown’s recently announced plan to have California derive 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020 has opened the door for bold ideas to help achieve this.

Tea Party Tent Show – Notes on the State of Jefferson

I’m a sucker for lost causes and the State of Jefferson is more lost than most. The quixotic notion that a half-million citizens in northern California and southern Oregon’s rural counties, frustrated with lack of representation at the state level, should band together, break away and form their own 51st state is not without merit. [...]

Downton Abbey Episode 8: Poor Anna! Congratulations to Mrs. Patmore, Rose and Atticus

This is a recap. There are major spoilers here.  Everyone is getting ready to go to London for Rose’s wedding. Carson and Hughes discuss the fact that they’re down a footman, and decide to hire one just for the time they’re in London. At a dress shop, Rose shows off her wedding outfit to Mary, [...]

The Kindness of Highlanders

Two traits I’ve noticed about Highlanders are that they look out for each other, and they know everything about each other.

Climate Change: A Blessing in Disguise?

The other day I had a thought. It goes like this: Saving the earth could give the youth a purpose for living. “One cannot live on bread alone.” Or “Shop ‘til you drop.” We live in a consumer society that has provided us with a shallow purpose and short-lived enjoyment. But, it wasn’t always like [...]
