GIMME SHELTER Newsletter
Mid Aug.2010

I’m still amazed and amused that our simple handbuilt home got on the CBS Sunday morning show in May. It's being rerun this Sunday (Aug. 21), 9 AM East Coast time, 6 AM (ulp!) West Coast time. Here's a link to the archived show: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=6541104n&tag=mncol;lst;1

Random notes:
Solar Energy Festival: SolFest, the big solar energy festival put on by Real Goods, is back on this year in Ukiah, California on Sept 25-26. Keynote speakers: Robert Kennedy, Jr., and Arianna Huffington. I'm giving a talk Saturday titled "The 1/2 Acre Homestead in the 21st Century," recapping 50 years' experience. Music by Poor Man's Whiskey (bluegrass). We'll have a booth, selling books. It's always a great outdoor event. http://solfest.org/

Tiny Houses Book: We're rolling. I've done about a dozen pages of rough layout and our art director David Wills coming in today to do some preliminary work.

My Blog: More and more stuff on shelter these days. Pic here is Sun Ray Kelley's solar-powered gypsy van, now under construction:
