Added a Water Tower and Windmill today and Wolfe got busy busting up a pile of firewood like Logn possesed. Very manly. I may have drooled. All new props from Sari-Sari. Now we're self sustainable at Witch Woods! You can just barely make out Bieij and Dragon and the wolves in the background if you zoom in!

"Halle-Neustadt consists of rows of apartment buildings surrounded by pleasant-looking green spaces, with a central commercial area and road corridor featuring large, articulated buses. The new city was also connected to Halle by an extensive streetcar system and an S-Bahn (commuter-rail line), and the city met the "Ideal Communist City" density of about 70,000 people per square mile.
The Stockholm planners' paper noted that almost all the apartments had two bedrooms because government planners decreed "that the ideal family consisted of four family members and that the number of flat rooms should be one less than the number of family members." They also noted that the government discouraged car ownership by placing most of the parking on the outskirts of the city "at a relatively large distance from the residential houses."
What the Swedish researchers failed to note in their 1998 presentation, but faithfully recorded in their full paper, was that Halle-Neustadt was only "sustainable" during the socialist period."

I had to sustain myself with coffee and biscotti.
Macro Mondays - Theme: Coffee (02/29/2016)

This was my reward for waking up in the early morning... Light, crops, clouds. Perfect.
Nap time now...
Light breeze, early morning, ebb tide, fish biting — maintaining social distance on the lagoon.
Gold Coast sunrise on the Currumbin Creek Estuary — where fish are big and boats are small.
I've been wanting to do a photo to go along with this one for a while and with the theme of "Blown Away" going over at Theme of the Week, this image came to mind.
I think that turbines are both beautiful and scary at the same time. While I appreciate the benefits of using wind as energy seeing these huge robots spanning the horizon really freaks me out. They're like artificial forest slowly taking over the landscape although they tend to harm birds rather than protect them. I'm certainly pro-sustainable energy.
I feel like the last week I was in zombie mode. Wake up, work, eat, run, photo, sleep, repeat. Hopefully it was only a week-long funk and I can get back to normal soon.
TOTW: Blown Away
Continuing my tour of architecture. 😊
A must see when in Little Rock is the Heifer International HQ. It is a LEED Platinum certified building. Made out of recycled, local, and sustainable materials it maximizes the use of sunlight and captures rainwater in a tower hidden behind the colorful images at the left of the frame. Alison and I got to tour it last year.
Canned, sustainable insect treats from Thailand Unique Foods. According to the United Nations, there is no source of protein that is not considered a delicacy somewhere.
Thailand Unique's website says, "We have been manufacturing edible insects since 2003 and pride ourselves in providing the highest quality insects from carefully selected from GAP certified farms. All insects are manufactured to strict GMP and HACCP standards, and tested regularly to ensure they meet international food safety standards. You will also find our range of edible insects at various retailers across the global including UK, United States, Japan and Europe.

In addition to these treats they have quite an impressive selection of other treats such as crickets, water bugs, grasshoppers, superworms, weaver ants, rhino beetles. tarantulas and black scorpions to name just a few from their huge selection. They also have interesting candied insects such as chocolate covered scorpions and chocolate coated sego worms. Yummy Stuff 😜
'Landscaped' 'Ornamental Grass' is what I was told. Well, to me they looked a bit like a jungle in a bad sort of way- this grass is what we could call a weed in Europe I think too. I tried helping my sister out a bit by tidying up the front garden, now I have cuts all over my hands, even with gloves on. In short- I don't like these plants.
Sustainability and neo-ecology are the megatrends of our time. The topic of sustainability will be addressed in a target-group-oriented way via modular approaches consisting of keynotes, empathetic inspirations and hands-on workshop sessions, and will lead to prototypical developments of new solution strategies in the participants’ own contexts. The workshop offers a complete package based on the artistic and technological approach of Ars Electronica and the technical, economic and systemic know-how of the Institute for Clean Technology.
