His work last year on a computer-controlled LED grow light morphed into two parallel concept companies, CompuGrow and CompuMilieu (say “mew”). Q: Baran, many people know you as the solar guy around the [...]

As a designer, I am keenly aware of the importance of the atmosphere and setting of the Thanksgiving banquet. The décor and arrangements are [...]
My mother has done it again. Sigh. Here we are, a week before Thanksgiving, and my mother called me today to discuss her plans. If you’ve been a longtime reader of The Mistress of The Mix, you may recall that two years ago I finally had a chance to cook a Thanksgiving feast. It was [...]
