  • 4 days till the next New Civ Salon in L.A. The phone is usually ringing off the hook those few days with people RSVPing or asking what the heck it is.

  • When I was driving around Denmark with my family, after not having been there for a decade, one of the most striking differences is the thousands of windmills that now dot the landscape. Denmark had a plan of covering 50% of the national energy needs with wind by 2030. However, I wouldn't be very surprised if that goal is close to being met. Anybody knows? Here's an article from Wired about various ambitious wind projects in northern Europe. The picture to the right is of the 40Megawatt windmill park "Middelgrunden" at the entrance to the Copenhagen harbor.

  • A Skull & Bones Broadcast by Connie Chung scheduled for September 4th on CNN was cancelled without explanation. That shouldn't be any big surprise, as the current U.S. president and his dad are amongst the prominent members of this secret society, picked from seniors at Yale University. The best researched document about the Skull & Bones Society is the book "America's Secret Establishment" by Anthony Sutton, who at the time was a Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University. I couldn't put it down when I was reading it a number of years ago. The list of members is quite chilling.

  • I've been out looking for a new house to live in with my family this past week. Just another rental at this point, but the current house is really too small for us and our stuff. Not that I have the money or that I'm ready, but it seems to be time to move.

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit." --Dawna Markova, Author of Open Mind.

    10 Sep 2002 @ 02:23 by ming : Owning a house
    Well, I did own a house about 10 years ago, which was great for a few years, and it was a wonderful house on a hillside in Glendale. But when we needed to sell it, and the market was down, it was hell. We ended up losing it. Since then we were quite happy renting, as we were more flexible, didn't owe any money to anybody, and anything wrong with the house was somebody else's problem. But, probably in a couple of years I'll want to buy something again. But I'm a moron at saving up money, just living from check to check, and the kind of house I'd feel good about buying would be at least $500K around here. And to be able to qualify for that I would probably need to have 20% of it in my hand.
