A Conversation...

Bookhound and I were having one of our conversations the other day, it went a bit like this... Me : 'Clocks go back this weekend.' Him : 'That means it's only five weeks to Advent and the C*******s bough coming into the kitchen.' Me : 'But surely it was only last week we packed the deccies away and put them in the loft...' And we suddenly realised that this year had somehow vanished, and we have no real markers for it other than those we'd prefer to forget. No month in New Zealand obviousl...

Best places for bioluminescence

Witnessing displays of bioluminescence is often a happy accident. You’re vacationing at a lovely coastal location, taking an evening stroll along the beach when you suddenly witness the rare, ethereal phenomenon of glowing blue waters. Being lucky enough to see bioluminescence is like adding chocolate to an already delicious strawberry — but it doesn’t have to be all luck. Although bioluminescence might look magical, it’s actually a biological phenomenon you can plan ahead to see, so witnessi...

Justices turn aside major case on homelessness law

This morning the Supreme Court issued more orders from last week’s private conference. After adding five new cases to their docket on Friday, including three cases involving disputes over access to President Donald Trump’s financial records, the justices did not grant any new cases today, nor did they seek the views of the federal government. Perhaps the biggest news on today’s order list was the justices’ announcement that they would not weigh in on the constitutionality of a Boise, Idaho, law ...

Town won’t let owner build on her lot, says it owes $0.00 for taking

Janice Smyth’s family had paid property taxes for 40 years on a residential-zoned land parcel on Cape Cod, which has been left as the last plot in its neighborhood not residentially developed. But the town of Falmouth has adopted land-use regulations that have left only a 115-square-foot patch of it developable. Massachusetts courts: even if the plot’s valuation fell from $700,000 to $60,000, a decline of more than 90 percent, it’s not a taking since you could still use the land as a park or to ...

Recently a pair of beavers has been spotted building a lodge in the state park here in town. This was exciting because there have been no beavers here in about a century. Now I knew that at one time the survival of the settlers of Massachusetts depended to some extent on the trade in beaver pelts, and I wondered how many of my colonial ancestors may have taken an interest in that trade. Because of my recent research of my Conant ancestors I knew of at least one who did, Roger Conant.I found an a...

Net-zero Maine house is designed to blend into the forest with age

When the owner of a beautiful natural site in Falmouth, Maine tapped Portland-based architectural studio Kaplan Thompson Architects to design his house, it was clear from the beginning that the forested surroundings would play a major role in the design. Not only did the architects use a predominately timber palette to bring the woods indoors, but the two-story home was also engineered to produce all of its own energy to reduce impact on the environment. Dubbed the Blackwood House, the net-zero...
