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.

Teaching Critical Race Theory at all, never mind as the backbone of pedagogy, is a form of dumbification. If you make white kids dumb, then kids of color might be able to compete and win. Tell me that’s not the goal. In South Africa, bantu education as of 1953, was offered to South African blacks, courtesy of South African whites. Readin’, writin’ and figurin’ was just about covered it, along with submission ...Read more June 9, 2021
Why does Mike LIndell, pillow guy, saying “9-0 at the Supreme Court”? Because it will be 9-0. This first chart is a list of 20 (of the many thousands) of attacks launched from China, principally, during the November 3rd election. The chart lists the IPs of the attackers, their source and their addresses including latitude, longitude, province, city and country.
This second chart shows the network from which the attack originated and IP ...Read more June 8, 2021
These are the lovely people responsible for the destruction of the world, the decanting of a billion people out of the middle class, the suicides, the business losses, the untreated cancer patients, the utter misery, NONE OF WHICH WAS NECESSARY.
Meanwhile, this is how much they pay in tax. The four below are merely illustrative of our plutocratic plunderers, all of whom belong at the new Nuremberg Trials. Check it out. https://corona-ausschuss.de/en/

It was inevitable that cool cities would collapse. Richard Florida’s creative class was always young, penniless and non-family-forming, so the piles and stacks of taxpayer money puffing and fluffing inevitably attracted the international criminal class and inevitably debouched the middle class. Leaving the desperate to loot and kill.
Schools are losing pupils as fast as they adopt Marxism as a guiding principle. Home schooling is up 125% in many states. Colleges have lost as much as ...Read more April 22, 2021
Humans do everything badly. The ideas start out well – full integration of Black people into the culture – which almost immediately end with knife fights and a race war in the streets. On television these days, which I only watch walking by the tv room, almost all the people in ads are black and most of the couples are mixed-race. Same with the current throwaway entertainment on the subscription networks. In ...Read more April 19, 2021
Last night I am watching American Idol with Jamie who is irritated because I am giggling like a five year old at Instagram Reels or TikTok while he is trying to have a lovely sentimental moment. What stops me is this ginormous black kid with the voice of an angel who starts Stand Up!, the Oscar winning song from Harriet, the biopic of Harriet Tubman, undisputed heroine of the Underground Railroad. I tried to ...Read more April 14, 2021
For the past year I’ve engaged in a process of withdrawal from violent or frightening-in-any-way-television. I haven’t been to the movies for years. The last I remember were the televised National Theatre productions beamed out to us provincials in the netherlands where non-progs and pencil-necked turkey farmers live. Last one was Kenneth Branagh playing Macbeth in a set that looked like a barn. It was not fun. And the tragedy was buried under so many ...Read more April 8, 2021
This makes sense from the Endocrine Society
Gender is often misused as a synonym for sex—for example, when filling out forms for various activities, we are routinely asked to check a box labeled “gender,” but the only available options are boxes labeled “M” and “F.” But sex is not the same thing as gender and using these terms as equivalents obfuscates differences that are real and important in society in general and biomedical research in particular.
I spent my 20’s in ...Read more March 15, 2021
As a sometime royal reporter – working for Time Inc. in London – I have processed through the dislike and envy felt by every normal human faced with the Windsor’s unimaginable wealth and power, through to a grudging acceptance of just how bloody hard the family works, how much good they do, and how important they are to the world. This is the attitude of a woman, which is to say me, dragged into maturity ...Read more January 26, 2021
As Lyndon Johnson pointed out, the way to loot poor whites is to make them hate blacks.
Dividing people is pretty easy, if you want to go low. You just repeat the lie often enough and before you know it, anyone not-you is anathema. This has been repeated so many times in human history, it is always surprising when we reach a time in history where we DON’T hate each other. Right now, we have ...Read more
