Solar Tour

I had the pleasure of doing a solar tour at 3 different sites on the weekend. I got to say that I don't understand why this isn't being fully embraced by everyone who owns, such neat stuff. I've been trying to get into the alt energy market for a bit now (or at least becoming more knowledgeable on it) and just now this thing is going to explode.

I really enjoyed taking a look at the thermal water reclamation setup the Marian centre was using....such a neat setup....why do people spend thousands on infloor heating instead of just routing the hot water through the bathroom floor...get out of shower...the floor is nice and toasty...just a bit of extra copper tubing.

Lots of idea's for tiny haus.

Ghey Pride

If I spell it ghey is that disrespectful? I dunno. 

 Anyways, Had a fun time going down and hanging out with Liz and Greg at the Pride Parade. Note to parade planner hour and like 40 that's a long time......after the parade I hung out with a few members of our crew and went to the Old Spaghetti Factory and then over to a bonfire.

 I don't get a huge amount of exposure to kids but I got to admit they can be fun sometimes. Janelle and I have solidified our decision to not have's a bit strange to have truly made the decision...we never wanted kids...seriously never even considered it...but to have made the decision to not procreate does feel like I am closing the door on a whole lot of future Justin' also feels somewhat liberating though as I can now throw all that possible energy into something else worthwhile. 

 Also...I've been playing around with wordpress on some of my other domains...fawk...I love that thing...going to be moving this blog over to a new domain soon...I just like the idea of it being pretty self contained instead of on something that will inevitably move livejournal....myspace....nexopia...etc. 

 Enough yammering here are some pics:

Let food be thy medicine

This is my grocer and he is an amazing upstanding guy....I made a decision a long time ago to not buy anything from anyone (99%) unless I trust the proprietor or farmer and this is a dude you can trust. People have a family doctor..a accountant...yet don't even think of ever forming a relationship with their grocer...who they deal with every week! Try him out, you won't be disappointed, Edmonton Journal Article
