Emory building draped in black to save birdsBasically the story is about a building on the campus of Emory University. It was built specifically to "go green." It's the math and science center building and this is an image of it. The reflected forest is easily visible.
Many crash into environmentally friendly design with soaring glass windows
The unintended consequence is that the glass confuses birds by making them think the forest reflected by the glass is in front of them when it really is behind them. Then, confused, they smash into the glass with fatal consequences. Apparently 60 birds were killed the first year.
Caregivers know about unintended consequences.
You just can't qualify for a mortgage with no income history. There are rules about this kind of thing. Especially now. But my banker lady came to my rescue. She tells me she has everything handled at the bank and has ordered the appraisal and will have money at the closing. Next big hurdle is the inspection which will occur on Monday.
Today is my stress test.
We're having company this next week, too. My stepdaughter arrives Saturday. We're very excited.
And I may have an opportunity to meet someone of the cornbread persuasion this next week if all works out.
