Organized Slime: Septic Systems Scams Article in Mother Earth News

I'm blowing the whistle on a huge ripoff of homeowners that is going on across the country: homeowners being forced into very expensive (30-50K) septic systems when in many cases they are not necessary.

Moon and Sun at North Pole Art

Floating around the web as an actual photo of moon and sun at north pole, but apparently created in TerraGen, a scenery program by 22-year old German astro-physics student Inga Nielsen. Sure is pretty.

I saw this on Ode magazine's website. Ode is a wonderful relatively new magazine.

Shipping Container Architecture/Too High Treehouse

Just in:

Hiya, Lloyd.... I've been following your blog since the beginning. I'm a big fan of Shelter Pub and all the books from way back when.... I started my own blog this year www.materialicio.us focusing on cool residential architecture and materials, and thought your readers might like to take a gander at it. I'm a nut for shipping container based housing and I've devoted a section to that: http://materialicio.us/tag/shipping_containers OR URL
Cheers, mate!
