Equinox

  • Not going to be that many people there other than neighbors, i.e. people who haven't done this sort of thing before
    • Probably won't get Mark
    • Not sure about John and Heather
    • Lyric, Meg? Matthew, Molly, Gus, David?
  • So should we do what we have been doing with the services, or do something that accommodates the neighbors?
    • Ben has no idea if some religious neighbors might object to our rituals
    • Shelley thinks we should just do the full service
      • Aeisha's Moonlit Walk: children's book including pagan equinox rituals

Backyard Cottage

  • Christine came over and took some pictures ... she did a porch for Brandon and Shelley's neighbors
    • She has a thing about maintaining historical integrity of the neighborhood
    • She has done some straw-bale houses (we're not going to do that)
    • She's worked with Orange Splot, which is a contractor, not an architecture firm
  • Things to keep in mind
    • Roof pitch and external siting has to be similar to the actual house, meaning a second-floor space will have a sloped ceiling limiting the usable space

WWWs

  • Brandon ... reach out to NASA Watch, Space Place, and maybe Commercial Space Gateway (Richard Mains) and the Lurio Report to ask them to write about SpaceWiki ... by next call
  • Brandon ... fix the MediaWiki search ... by Sept. 13
  • Brandon ... add the creative commons by attribution-share alike license to SpaceWiki ... by next call
  • Brandon ... make first approach to SpaceX ... by next call
  • Brandon & Shelley ... invite the neighbors to the Equinox celebration ... by next call
  • Ben ... write at least 400 words on the SolSeed book ... by next call
  • Ben ... sign up for Whidbey Bioneers ... by Sept. 16
