Oregon Ranks in 9th Place in Installed Photovoltaic (Solar) Systems...up 2 spots since 2007! - 09/21/09 04:05 PM
Photovoltaic - Photovoltaics (or PV) is the field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells for energy by converting solar energy (sunlight, including ultra violet radiation) directly into electricity. Apparently, consumers in Oregon are buying together to increase their overall purchasing power. Buying through organizations such as congregations or whole residential neighborhoods in quantities of 25+ at a time really shaves down the out of pocket investment and makes going green much more appetizing to many Oregon consumers. Another trend is that most of the mid to large size installations are merely hosting the systems through (4 comments)
Have You Ever Done It? - 09/11/09 03:07 AM
--- Gone in the wrong house when you were showing properties? Happened to me today. By relying on the trusty GPS I got to the right street, the right block - and, I thought, the right driveway! Jumped out of the car, pulled out the Supra key and headed for the front porch. I was looking for the bench where the RMLS print out said the lockbox was attached. Hmmm - no bench. Might have been a clue to me. But no, I simply thought, oh they've moved the bench and now the box is on the front door. Opened the lock (20 comments)
Hoop! Hoop! World Hoop Day in Laurelhurst Park. - 09/10/09 02:50 AM
There was a surprising sight tonight in Laurelhurst Park! Hula hoopers! The event grew gradually, from a few people to perhaps 50 by the time it was dusk. Tricks with hoops, dancing with hoops,hoops in the air and three women in one hoop - talk about teamwork, they got it going! We watched, and wondered who the hoopers were, and why they were at the Park with enough hoops for five times the number of people present. As we were leaving one of our group asked. Turns out it was World Hoop Day today. Their mission according to the World Hoop Day web (5 comments)
Love Great Architecture? - Here's the Wright Stuff! - 09/10/09 02:03 AM
The only Oregon building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright was originally in Wilsonville, OR. The house, designed for Conrad and Evelyn Gordon as a Usonian-style farm house is now located in Sllverton, next to the Oregon Garden. The house was moved to its present location in 2001 to prevent a threatened demolition after Evelyn Gordon's death. In 2004 the Gordon House was recognized as a state architectural treasure and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. .
It is the only Wright designed house open to the public in the Pacific Northwest Having read "Loving Frank" by Nancy (38 comments)
Late Summer in the Garden - 09/03/09 12:06 PM
The green beans are making their way from their trellis to the arch with the climbing roses. New Dawn pinks are dancing with the red of Scarlet Runners. A ‘mess' of beans was picked this morning and will be steamed by evening. Six quarts of pasta sauce rest in the freezer thanks to the prolific output of heirloom tomatoes: red Legends, Nebraska Golds, and the gorgeous yellow of Taxi. When the Sun Gold cherries make it to the kitchen and don't get eaten straight from the vine, their tang perfects the panzanella salad and the basil pesto for pasta. Almost too (18 comments)
