Wastewater and Microgrids for the Coastside? No More Inter-Tie or Outfall!?

POWERPOINT/ LINKS. This is the presentation made to Renewit group led by Stanford Civil Engineering  in 2016. It deals with work previously completed in Santa Monica, Malibu and Ventura County on small modular fully automated and remote controlled sewage treatment in areas where central plants and septic systems failed or could not function.

I have been studying, designing and installing such systems since 2000. I also worked on designs for very large systems way back when designing airports in remote desert areas.

National Night Out Fun with Northwest Miramar Neighbors!

It was good to see neighbors we hadn’t seen in a while and likewise, to meet those we have seen around but never had the chance to speak with.  Good conversations, laughter, and new friendships formed proved to be the highlights of the evening!

Thanks to San Mateo County for supporting National Night Out.  An extra thanks to Mother Nature for holding steady and letting us enjoy the powerful force of the ocean on this beautiful beachfront.  Grateful for all.

Thanks to Miramar residents, Kent Taylor, Celina Lopez, and Joe Roark for organizing this year’s event.

A New Take on Inner Change with Local Workshops for Adult Healing through Paint


ARTICLE / PHOTOS. The concept is called Intentional Creativity – using a creative process for personal transformation.

It’s nothing like paint and sip, but it does involve gathering in groups and painting.

 Two longtime Coastside healers – Jane Celeste Sanguinetti, of Joy of Being in Moss Beach, and Dr. Neesa Ginger Mills – have stepped beyond ordinary healing methods to bring others through guided inner journeys and a step-by-step painting process they find leads to deep inner change in their students.
