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.

I’ve been going through the green change lately, reading about it, writing about it, living it, etc., but one of my favorite mediums has been neglected…television, tv, the boob tube…I love it…but using all that juice just to watch it, I thought, how can I give back? HGTV [Home & Garden Television] to the rescue. This informative channel is a favorite in our home, it is always on. One day an ad came on for “Living With Ed“. I remembered Ed Begley Jr. on St. Elsewhere from way back in the day. I remember hearing some gossip about him, people saying he was strange to work with or just strange or that there was something different about him…I don’t remember exactly what…but I was curious to check out his show. I set up the Tivo to record “Living With Ed“, and after a few months of procrastination, I finally watched an episode and loved it. In fact I just watched three episodes in a row earlier and guess what…by the end I had the great idea for today’s post. :P GENIUS!!!

 

Rachelle and Ed Begley Jr.

 

The show is awesome. It is Ed and his wife Rachelle, who seem to be people with passion for something good and are intelligent as well, which is fresh. Given the show is more what rich people of California can do to green their property by paying pricey specialists to come in their homes, then paying other people to install said updates, but in the process, we pleabians learn for free why compact halogen lights are better. It is a win/win situation…Right now I can’t afford a house much less solar panels and windmills, but it is a good way for people to learn about the options that are available and of course for people like me who will one day be drowning in riches, I will luckily already know what to do to be the greenest human I can be! :P That’s living…

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
