Go Green?

Question: What does a green house look like?

Answer: Similar to any other house on the outside.  But it’s what’s inside that counts.

Building a green home starts with site selection.  Tips for an energy efficient site selection:

  1. Situate the side of the house with the most windows, usually the back, to face due South.
  2. Minimize land disturbance by leaving trees to provide shade and keep the ground stable.  In Big Canoe, we are only allowed to clear 10′ around the perimeter of the house.  Since most of our trees are deciduous, they provide shade in the summer and when they lose their leaves in the winter allow sunlight to warm the house.
  3. Plan for water drainage from the beginning.  Make sure the house is situated and the land is graded so that water runs away from the house.

Forthcoming “Green” topics will cover windows, HVAC systems, insulation, building materials, and other ways to make your home green.

    Well, actually there were two parties to the initial contract; the Giannascas and Carnival. The “third party” would be the State Department. So, you WOULD rely on the third party opinion, in this case. I know what you mean though, but I don’t know if I can hold the travelers 100% responsible for this; they did try and get information. If you ask a question of the party that you think should know the answer, and you get an answer from them free of any doubts or suspicions, why would you go somewhere else?

    I am so sorry that this immoral traitor physically attacked you in such a vile manner.  You did not deserve to be treated this way.  No one, no one ever, deserves to be treated this way. I apologize most profusely, because these things are being done to innocent people in my name, supposedly to protect me, and being done with my money!  We all are paying for him to hit you in the testicles for no reason, and I’m sick with anger and at my wits end about how to make it stop.  It would help if you would file complaints far and wide, with TSA directly, with your congressional representatives, with ACLU, with the U.S. Travel Association, letter to your local paper, and so on.  I’ve done all these things and I think public pressure will make a difference.

    Sick and tired of being bored? There’s nothing at all good to watch on TV these days. How many cat videos can you watch at YouTube? What you really want is some live adult entertainment. That’s what http://www.camgirl.pw is all about. It’s 24/7 excitement like you’ve never seen before. Check it out and tell a friend. Something this good needs to be shared.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
