If you have mercury fillings, don't miss this story.
For decades, the American Dental Association has resolutely defended the safety of mercury fillings in the teeth of more than 100 million Americans, even muzzling dentists who dared to warn patients that such fillings might make them sick.

Here's a "cube" that has everything you need in a home -- a very, very small home.
A Toronto developer and a European design firm have teamed to create Cubitat, a plug-in-play block with a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom in 100 square feet.

I'm from South Beach...If you have plants check out www.Maryspoop.com. I now have an alpaca farm in Virginia and manufacture an Organic Fertilizer packaged in Paks (tea bags) for indoor use. No muss, no odor, no pathogens. OMRI listed...really organic. Expect big healthy plants with big blooms and re blooming orchids. Really!

I got two 4x8 pcs of plywood, hinged them together to act as a "teepee" of sorts to cover my generator during storms.  The plywood stands 8 ft long along the length of the generator, and then some....The ends are fairly large sized, and I plan on drilling several holes in the sides of the plywood to allow even more heat/fumes to escape and allow the electrical cords to plug in to the outlets. Is this something you would recommend? 
The ridge across the top is about a 3/4 inch wide and also allows heat/fumes to escape. This set up is about 20 feet from my house.  Any input/advice is appreciated.  Many thanks!!
