HOW ARE PLASTIC BOTTLES RECYCLED? Plastic bottles make life so much easier. They're lightweight and easy to hold, and they're also strong and hard to break. A plastic bottle is the best way to contain and carry many kinds of liquid, from water and soft drinks to oil to household cleaners and baby formula. The plastic bottle is a great invention, but what happens to it when that handy container is empty? How Bottles Can Hurt the Environment Since the 1970s, people who care about the environment and the health of our planet have been worried about how to dispose of plastic once...

We are all from somewhere else, some other country, some other tradition, some other language, a multicultural society that came together to form the greatest nation on earth. Just like air conditioning running water and electricity it's easy to forget about how we got here and take it for granted, how this country was built, who built it and why. As we become accustomed to the conveniences that we've discovered and built in our history we've become less and less in touch with the basic question “How did it happen” What sort of sacrifices were made by the people who...

Patience is the word this week So I have 2 clients I'm doing too pretty good size projects for. One is living in the house and one is living off site.

And they want to celebrate T-DAY in their new kitchen. The one living off site is pressing me because they want to get back in their house because it's taken so long to do the project not...

Q. Is it hard coming into a new country and starting a new business? Not if you have a great plan! RG I came upon Pink Belts Roofing and Robyne Garten from a referral from my friend Gary Neidert when I was pitching the idea of this podcast series to him. A quick google search and email to Robyne and much to my delight a quick response.

In 1977 or so I was invited by some friends to help rebuild a lodge in the mountains near the small town of Gold Hill, Colorado. Since I had nothing better to do and was wasting time and my mothers hard earned money screwing off in junior college in Tyler, Texas, I jumped at the chance. So off I went to live in an old abandoned ski cabin, with no water or electricity on an old abandoned ski run on what would become the turning point in my life. My 1st job as grunt and sacrificial "helper" was to scale to...
