Green

Home & Garden Television [HGTV] is building and giving away [EDIT– Some people already have become confused by the phrase “giving away”, so for those people…HGTV is having a sweepstakes [A promotion that awards prizes on the basis of a chance drawing or preselected numbers. Similar to a contest, but without the element of skill—and usually for legal reasons, without “consideration”.] to win the green house. It is not a contest and they are not going to just come to your house and hand it to you, without entering said sweepstakes first. I apologize for not being clearer.] an eco-friendly home and I am super jazzed. I don’t care, I am going to try to win this thing everyday and in every way [you can enter in Spring ’08]. It’s in South Carolina, by the water, and looks awesome [at the blueprint stage at least]. It is also by a golf course, which I know will make someone I love very happy. :) Well, really a few people I love very happy. Me, not so sure about golf yet. I almost forgot, in the video they say the golf course is also “green“, well uses some “green” practices at least. :D If you go to this link, you can watch a two and a half minute video on the house and hear more about said “green” golf course.

HGTV also has some photos up from the HGTV Green Home Jobsite. I guess they are going to keep updating the pictures here, so you can track the HGTV Green Home taking shape.

Wish me luck.

To supply the corn and soybeans to feed the livestock to bring daily meat to America’s dinner plates has meant concentrated levels of pesticides, fertilizers, and farm chemicals contaminating many aquifers across the Midwest. Some towns have come to rely on their neighbors for fresher, though expensive, supplies of water. But a recent boom in cattle and pig operations has poisoned these stores as well, prompting plans for government-subsidized pipelines to link towns with major rivers. Some, however, see such costly schemes as ill-advised and the subsidized water as exactly what got the towns in trouble in the first place.
