Interesting space you have here...a little bird sent me over to have a peek.

Have some ideas I have been ruminating on myself in regards to some of the things you touch on...water conservation is one of them...if for instance we were to retrofit all the houses and apartments in the New York area to either A) have small source point hot water, or equipment the system to have a constant hot water flow through the pipe system so that the water comes out hot as soon as you turn the water on, as a community we could keep hundreds of millions of gallons, if not billions in our resevoirs...average water flow in a shower is five gallons a minute, and most people let the water run 2-3 minutes to get it the right temperature, so you can see the waste potential...further, all that saved water would not have to be run through sewage treatment.

You are right on small mart shopping...I've thought the same about educating our children...think home schooling on steroids if you will, but getting rid of the BIG BOX schools.

Any way, nice read.
