"Sustainable Building Solutions," or, "One Button for Pee-pee and One Button for Poo-poo"

More later, but wow!

I was out of the loop for a few weeks, and I just learned my sister Rebecca Bryant and associates have started a Sustainable Building Solutions green architectural consulting firm.

I may have mentioned, I used to think my big sister was a big meanie until I realized she was a genius (see related links below). While studying at CU Boulder in the early 1990's, she somehow saw the future and was hammering on me and family about all the green stuff that everyone is talking about today. 20 years ahead of mainstream America [little brother aside: I saw the future the same way for the internet, but that's another story].

Now that I have lived in California for some time, experienced "running out of electricity," (rolling blackouts), and water rationing, I have a great respect for Green Design and Green Consulting. If you take a second to think about it (or two gulf wars), it really just makes sense.

I have to admit, when I visit Rebecca and hang around her home on the coast near Mobile, AL, there's a sense that something is just right about the way her green home just fits right into the lush, forest-like surroundings. There is a sense of peace about it. I guess that's what Sustainability and Green Building are all about.

Almost forgot... the company is http://www.watershed.pro/.
