Luna, our company mascot

Last week we lost our friend and company mascot, Luna, the Tibetan Terrier.  When we first got her twelve and a half years ago, the breeder said that she was the runt of the litter, but also had the most personality.  There was never any doubt about that, and as she grew up with our […]

Looking Backwards and Forwards

I love this time of year, but not because of the decorations, gifts, food and fun, although I like all of those things too. I love it because it is one of those quiet times for looking backwards and forwards; and reflection and redefinition. The business world slows as people take vacations and companies close […]

Aquaponics in Japan

This past Monday I returned home from a 10 day trip through Japan with my son. It was a high school graduation gift for him (in part to exercise his four years of Japanese language classes) and a birthday present for me (one of those big deal birthdays that end in a zero. Can you […]

A bit of a punt!

Between having a houseful of people here over Thanksgiving week and writing two other blog posts, I’m punting in this blog this week (did you catch the football reference? LOL).

Radio interviews are usually fun because they are essentially conversations with very personable people about my favorite subject! Most of the hosts have read the book and they generally ask thought-provoking questions, especially around the […]

Aquaponics Association 2011 Conference Highlights

The crazy thing is that I’m going to try and recap the highlights of the 2011 Aquaponics Association Conference in one blog post that can actually be read in under a half an hour. Wish me luck! Getting there – We knew it was going to be a good weekend because the airlines actually cooperated. […]

This week, and next, are both unusually busy and unusually exciting. I wanted to take a few minutes out of the madness and update you on what is going on in my world before you think I’ve just gone silent and forgotten to write! We held our first Aquaponic Source open house this past weekend. […]

Aquaponics Vacation Reading

Over the past two weeks, our family went on our annual Lake Powell houseboat trip with my brother-in-law’s family. Vacations tend to mean different things to different people but to me, it is all about reading books. In my ‘normal’ life I tend to work until between 9:00 and 10:00 every night and then watch […]

Aquaponic Gardening Book Endorsements

This past winter I discovered that writing a book is a very solitary endeavor. I was on a tight schedule that required that I write at least a thousand words a day, seven days a week, for four months. During that time every afternoon my butt was glued to what I have now come to […]
