Building the Pink House

The Pink House house is made of rammed earth, and heated by geothermal energy – through in-floor water pipes. The floor is concrete, which is the best conductor for in-floor. The heating is supplemented by a Tempcast masonry stove, the latter the greenest cheapest way to heat a house, its radiant heat used in pre-electricity Europe. For the first year, we only used the masonry stove, and it kept us warm, despite the 12 foot walls, and massive central hall.

The cost savings of geo-thermal were substantially less than advertised.

Men’s waists are back in fashion says the New York Times

March 20, 2018
What does it say about us?  asks the header.  That’s easy.  It says we have added way way too many estrogenic chemicals to our water and food.  Same reason for crashing sperm counts.  Good job global elites!  Way to solve the population “problem”.

Kamala Harris is dreaming big in Vogue. Dream on Sister

March 19, 2018
Vogue Magazine continues its celebration of dodgy politicians with a puff piece on Kamala Harris, the mixed-race politician from California, who clawed her way to the top by the way of more than one bed and spouts verbal garbage inveigling against big banks and corporations just like any leftist circa 1970.  Life is a little more complicated and interesting than that, “Comma-la” and I am sure when you run for President and get mowed over, you will ...

In which I change my life. Again.

March 19, 2018
I must have been a dozen people in my life –  I even have a despairing name for myself, Miriam Myriad.  I can adapt to pretty much any group of people until I’m bored, which sounds as an imperative similar to the Voice of God, whereupon I slip the harness and splash off in search of the next collection of interests.  I do not believe this to be strictly ethical, though I will myself to not ...

“The Monmouth University Poll… finds a large bipartisan majority who feel that national policy is being manipulated or directed by a ‘Deep State’ of unelected government officials.

March 19, 2018
Ann Althouse reports this morning: “Just over half of the public is either very worried (23%) or somewhat worried (30%) about the U.S. government monitoring their activities and invading their privacy.” I see this as very very good news because it is true. About time “folks” got “woke”. Althouse continues: There are no significant partisan differences – 57% of independents, 51% of Republicans, and 50% of Democrats are at least somewhat worried the federal government is monitoring their activities…   … ...

Saudi Crown Prince declares Women equal to Men.

March 19, 2018
This rather dashing figure turned up on 60 Minutes last night and declared Change in the Magical Kingdom of Saud.  Someone make this guy some wings and a following wind.  This is truly truly astonishing.  I am going to need a day to process.

Beta boys and backwoods soccer moms, whence the damned culture?

March 13, 2018
So there’s this: and this.  These gorgeous creatures are the current editors of Paris Vogue (easily the most fashionable women on the planet).  Not only that, they were photographed at couture, not ready-to-wear. People have a right to express themselves any way they want, and, in some instances be celebrated for it.  But fashion tells us in no uncertain terms whence the culture.  So women are now backwoods Montana soccer moms with a home-based farm-based business, and ...

Who the hell coached these gals?

March 6, 2018
Talk about bad sportmanship.  Or is that too male?  I am disgusted that the Canadian woman’s hockey team did not accept losing well, even removing their medals while shaking their opponents’ hands.  Apparently, Canadians aren’t the nicest people on earth after all.
