Comment on Earthen Flooring by dix http://terranotterror.com/2008/01/29/earthen-flooring/#comment-1395 dix Sat, 02 May 2009 23:21:32 +0000 http://terranotterror.wordpress.com/?p=232#comment-1395 I am looking into this as well. We are building a greenhouse attached to a house which uses geo-thermal, and in-floor radiant heat throughout our slab on grade finished cement floor. There is an extra loop of the heat pipe set aside for the greenhouse, but even though we absolutely LOVE our cement floor, I would like the greenhouse, where I will spend much time on my feet, to be a soft floor. I am concerned about mold. We have no formaldehyde in our home. Appreciate any input or if you would forward replies to your question, I would be very thankful. I am looking into this as well.

Seems not too many people in the Canton/Akron area have heard of it, or are active anyhow. I'm trying to get folks interested. See guerrillagardening.org for more info, and hope to join you clandestinely planting by moonlight sometime! Terra, are you interested in guerrilla gardening?

Comment on One of a Kind Pets by Anonymous http://terranotterror.com/2007/12/03/one-of-a-kind-pets/#comment-1364 Anonymous Tue, 20 Jan 2009 19:01:05 +0000 http://terranotterror.com/2007/12/03/one-of-a-kind-pets/#comment-1364 I believe OOAKPR to be an amazing organization. The adoption center quarentines all rescued pets and is known for "heavily vetting" the animals - thus the $200.00 adoption fee. All illnesses are treated prior to adoption. Sadly, most animals have some - or multiple - medical issues to address. Animals are spayed and neutered and current on all vaccines. Lastly, The animal is microchipped to assure a safe return should it become lost once again. They do, in fact, rescue animals from Animal Control prior to euthanasia; however, they'd tell you themselves that their animals are no more beautiful than the ones they had to leave behind. They'd also tell you to rescue from Animal Control before coming to their shelter. Scrutinizing the pet's next owner is part of their job. The animals have been thru a lot prior to being rescued and they want their next home to be their last! It is not uncommon for a home owner to not want to incorporate an animal that someone else in the home desires. In fact, animals aquired like this are frequently returned - creating more confusion for the pet. Anyone that understands the "bonding" that takes place between a social pack animal and an owner will also understand the stress caused to the animal when its environment is continually changed. Most people appreciate how rescue organizations scrutinize them when adopting an animal because they too understand what sensitive creatures they are and what trauma they have already been thru. I believe, if you network with other rescue groups, you will find they all have the same standard when it comes to renting or owning a home. I'm grateful for their commitment to these animals that can't scrutinize a "potential owner" themselves. There is a lot to owning a pet and education is key!

Comment on Try a Tankless Water Heater by Atlanta Plumber http://terranotterror.com/2007/12/06/try-a-tankless-water-heater/#comment-1359 Atlanta Plumber Wed, 17 Dec 2008 02:25:39 +0000 http://terranotterror.com/2007/12/06/try-a-tankless-water-heater/#comment-1359 As a plumber I've seen a dramatic increase in the demand for tankless water heaters. The biggest selling point (at least with the people I've installed them for) has been the convenience of having hot water come out of the tap much more quickly than with the old water heaters. Second and third on the list are saving on energy bills and helping the environment. On the economic and ecological side, I have seen one brand (Bosch) that uses the flow of water through the pipes to generate its own electricity. Clever!
