I moved some of the tomato, cilantro, rosemary and thyme sprouts into different containers so that they would have plenty of root room.
gratuitous measuring cup.. shot(?), thyme and vine-y plant. OH! and far in the background is cucumber rock
tomato out of focus and chives from last year in focus

I still have a lot more to replant and little window space left so if you want to spice your home up just drop by.

Floating Ecopolis for Climate Refugees, a solution for a rising ocean by architect Vincent Callebaut
Also the June 08 issue of Wired rethinks "green":
1. The A/C is ok: it takes more energy to heat than cool
2. Live in Cities: the landmower is evil
3. Organics are not the answer: Stop eating meat and use local farmers
4. Farm the forests: over its lifetime, a tree shifts from being a CO2 vacuum to an emitter
5. China is the solution not the problem: rising energy
6. Accept genetic engerneering: keeping 6 billion people fed boosts global warming more than all the world's cars, trucks, trains ships, and planes put together
7. Carbon Trading doesn't work: environmental version of subprime mortgages
8. Embrace nuclear Power: winning the war on warming
9. Use cars not hybrids: Keep your used car
10. Prepare for the worst: Our ability to deal is far greater than the chance of stopping it.

Last nay the least, BMW revealed its latest direction. Think flexible. Think context over dogma. Ladies and Gentlemen, think GINA
thanks Chris


Hey Buddy

So everything but carrot is coming along swimmingly. This is an update from the last.Tomato is well on its way with Cilantro in a close second. The thyme was first to bloom and the first to die then re-bloom. Odd but ok.


Japanese Movie Posters

These are from Posteritati in NY . They did a little exhibition at my office .



Maybe it was the hot, heavy air. Maybe it was smooth cooings of Natiale Merchant reprimanding child abusers in the background. Or maybe it was the raw cut of his synthetic lamb's wool.

Whatever it was, it was magic.

What is the depth of your commitment?
