Portland Rated #1 most Green City

This is not surprising. People are psychotic about being green in this city. How many times at a coffee shop or bar are people talking about it and reading about it in PDX? All the time.

Thursday morning Breakfast in PDX, frequently it’s about lowering the footprint.

I’m happy to live in this town that is so into it. Hopefully, we’ll keep it up. See the chart below for how we are doing.

Blogging every day this year and Renewable Energy

I successfully blogged every day in January and I would like todo it every day in 2007. 1 down, 11 to go.

The weather has been beautiful this week in Portland…sunny, clear and cold. Been busy enough to not get that hyped for the Super Bowl this sunday. I do have a few Chicago Deep Dish pizzas from Gino’s East being flown in manana. Should be good.

Lastly, check-out our newest Logue, on Renewable Energy. Hayden is a passionate dude on this stuff and is giving it a go on writing about this topic. Drop by and ask him a question or what you want to know about this topic. The oil ain’t gonna last forever mutha!

Ben Stein on Capitalism

He makes some good points about Capitalism:

  • how it has been good for a lot of people (including himself)
  • how the whole system is built on trust

He wrote the article while talking about how he enjoys the fruits of capitalism, but wonders if it’ll keep going like this forever based on today’s events of dishonesty at so many levels in so many companies.

I wonder the same thing sometimes. The US has had a good run from a few colonies a few 100 years ago to the economic superpower in the world. It probably won’t last forever…just remember history always repeats itself. Always.

Small Farmers are almost gone

My pops was raised on a small farm back in PA in the late 40s and 50s. Many folks like my pops used to live on small farms and be able to make a modest living. KC and I discussed last night, the plight of the small/non-corporate farmer. From what I can see, it is a very difficult business today. In fact, it almost ain’t a business.

She put me onto Agriculture of the Middle.

This term refers to a disappearing sector of mid-scale farms/ranches and related agrifood enterprises that are unable to successfully market bulk commodities or sell food directly to consumers.

I am sure there is so much more to this than I am aware of. Any thoughts?
