Hollywoodで生牡蠣
HollywoodのFarmers Marketが良いと聞いたので行ってみた。IvarとSelmaの交わる角から四方に広がり、野菜果物などはIvar沿い、クラフト類はSelma沿い。いかにも「小さな畑で作りました〜。」みたいな野菜もあって愛嬌がある。Studio CityやSanta Monicaのマーケットより規模が大きいし、値段も少し安めに思える。 生牡蠣を食べさせてくれるお店もあり、これがまた新鮮。舌触りも最高で、久しぶりに美味しい生牡蠣が食べられて幸せな気分に浸った。 このお店のお兄さん二人の話による...

LAに短期移動
主人のLA生活基盤作りをパパッと片付けて、ちょっと一息。今度は残してきた家を貸す準備しにプレノにとんぼ返だ。娘がダブリンから帰ってきて卒業まで家に住む予定だったので家財すべて残してきたけれど、彼女の計画も急変。出る前は貸さないつもりで何もしてこなかったので、こちらはちょっと時間がかかりそう。家具付きで貸すのも検討してみようと思う。 LAには以前Brentwood辺りに住んでいたので、海岸沿いばかり北に南に行き来していた。今回は身軽に動けるのであちこち開拓しようと思う。 意外にも、LAに地下鉄が出来ていて結構利...

時間と経験
私も単純。国際会議で東京に行ったDCの友人からお土産をもらってハッピー。超多忙だったはずなのにと、その心遣いがうれしい。私がDCに立ち寄った時には、忙しかったのにランチに付き合ってくれた。 もらって一番嬉しいのは、時間と経験。だから、何か一緒にしたり、会って時を過ごせるのが私には最高のプレゼントだ。次は食べ物とか使ったらなくなってしまう消耗品。それ以外はほとんど何もいらない。 我家ではクリスマスや誕生日の"物"のプレゼントはしない。子供達がサンタを信じていた幼い頃は少しやったけれど、その後は「〜〜をしてあげる...

How much water you use during winter unproportionally affects your water bill
If you wonder why your water bill stubbornly stays on the high side even though you think you are conserving water, this might help explain...at least for those of you who live in Plano. My latest water/utility bill shows only a quarter is charged for water...

DCで一番美しい建物
DCでちょっと時間があったので、何の気なしにLibrary of Congressに立ち寄ってみて驚いた。まばゆいばかりに美しい。本がぎっしり詰ったドライな所を予想していた私は目を見張った。 Docentの話によると、このJefferson Bldgはアメリカで初めて電気を取り入れた建物だとか。 設計した2人は建設途中で追われ、その後は工事を担っていたThomas Lincoln Caseyが取り仕切り、終盤、大学を出たばかりだった自分の息子に内装を一切任せたという。 お父さんの元で自由にできたのか、若さなの...

GDT knows how to throw a party.
GDT 's holiday party - titled "Giddy Up" - was awesome. I used to think office parties were somewhat stuffy get-together. Not this one. People were dressed up/down everything from cowboy hat and boots, sparkly dress to regular sweat suit. But, they were ALL...

Story
Tagline
Cleantech Liaison. Open-minded little Asian Texan who loves nature and technology.
Introduction

As a Cleantech Liaison, I help engineers and technologists with different backgrounds exchange knowledge, collaborate, create solutions, and work toward shared goals...and ultimately build our sustainable future.

I grew up in Japan with conservative loving family, and since childhood I have been successfully breaking cultural, societal, and organizational silos and opening people’s minds to new possibilities. As the liaison, I have successfully created collaborations between businesses and people of different backgrounds and cultures throughout my career.

I'm the mother of three wonderful children; a dietitian in Alaska, a computer science major in Dublin, Ireland, and a commercial model in New York. I’m proud of them all.

Please contact me at renko1@gmail.com. I would love to discuss clean technology, including solar and other renewable energy, and collaboration ideas.
