We were scheduled to spend seven days at the Royal...[Read More]

The word eco means nature (in Greek oikos means house), so an Ecohouse would be a place that respects the environment (literally, a house inside a house). It would be easy for all of us to be ecologically friendly, in complete simbiosis with nature: we just need to live the way we did 10.000 years ago, hunting, planting, and living in shelters with no water or energ...[Read More]

Belle W. Baruch (1899-1964) could outride, outshoot, outhunt, and outsail most of the young men of her elite social circle--abilities that distanced her from other debutantes of 1917. Unapologetic for her athleticism and interests in traditionally masculine pursuits, Baruch towered above male and female counterparts in height and daring. While she is known today for...[Read More]
