Tiny Homes by Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn's new book, Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter, is out. I've been following Lloyd's Blog for a while now and have been looking forward to getting my hands on this book. For anyone interested in living small this is worthy material.

Makes me a bit nostalgic for my cabin in the woods that served me so well in the earlier part of the century and that in some part led to this full timing life I'm enjoying so much.

Alex Can Think

Animal researchers are finally beginning to catch up to the little old ladies in tennis shoes who say Fifi the poodle can think. The fights are always between a big group of experts who think animals don't have a lot of feelings or aren't very smart, and a much smaller group of researchers who think there's a lot more going on inside an animal's head than we know. The really nasty fights always seem to go one way: it's always the animal "debunkers" who are on the attack. At least, I don't remember a single big academic fight where someone got fired or lost their funding for doing a study where the animal turned out to be dumber than people thought, and lots of studies like that have been done. Claiming that an animal can't do something isn't considered blasphemous.
