Massive 800-megawatt Solar Project Announced by SunPower

Interesting interview about the historic PV solar deal announced for California today. It will be a 800-megawatt system with capacity to power 239,000 homes each year. This is a first step towards producing enery that rivals full-scale coal and nuclear plants. I like the way the panels will tilt to follow...

Michael Phelps Chasing Destiny and Thoughts About The Olympic Summer Games in Beijing

We're enjoying the Olympics a lot. The opening ceremony was an incredible spectacle, despite emerging stories now about a Chinese Milli Vanilli (the lip-syncing little girl) and digitally enhanced fireworks. I can't believe Latvia beat the US in the opening beach volleyball match. Does Latvia even have a beach? It...

2007 Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling Review – A White Wine Bargain

Although I almost exclusively enjoy big, bold red cabs as my wine of choice (what goes better with a grilled steak?), the hot summer months often means a cold, crisp white is a better choice. Even though Napa produces some of the best in the world, I'm not a Chardonnay...

In Loreto Bay: Video of the Estuaries and Kayak Launch Point

Everyone we've talked to or emailed with about Loreto Bay continues to wax poetic about the winding estuaries and canals, one of their favorite features. And rightfully so. As far as I know, it will be a unique element of the development. It will bring tremendous interest to the...

The Little Search Engine That Could… But Couldn’t Become Google

A recent CNET article on search engines triggered a trip down memory lane. In the late 90's it was the wild west when it came to search engines. They were everywhere, with new ones popping up left and right. None of them dominated like Google today. And that's what...

It's been a busy week for Loreto Bay. First we received updates on our Nueva Chica progress in Agua Viva (AV025). Then we received an email from Michael Coyle which contained an informative update on Loreto Bay. Now just as the weekend begins we've received the first official "Property...

Loreto Bay Update From Michael Coyle and New Paseo Conceptual Plan

Artist's rendering of the proposed Bell Tower, a new icon representing the heritage and culture of Loreto, Mexico. Tonight while enjoying the awe-shucks demeanor of James Stewart fighting his fear of heights and apparently chasing multiple women in Hitchcock's classic Vertigo (in HD no less), we received a Loreto Bay...

Randy Pausch’s Childhood Dreams and Inspirational Last Lecture

Over lunch today I learned about the death of Randy Pausch (Carnegie Mellon page) and his last lecture. Curious, I was able to read some of the headlines and view part of his now famous presentation from Carnegie Mellon September 18, 2007. Having learned just weeks before that he had...

In Loreto Bay: Green Hotel Key is a Little Big Idea

I feel slightly obligated to atone for my apparent wayward ways when it comes to car idling as pointed out by Loni so diplomatically in yesterday's post. So while thinking of small green things that can make a big environmental difference (insert image here of Clint with reading glasses...
