Lite Notes

Trending Green

Nov 1st, 2021

When I was about 14 I decided I wanted to make a difference in the world, grow up and work for the Environmental Protection Agency. I declared to my family, friends and anyone who would listen, we have one earth and we must do our part to save it. I made the profound (probably somewhat […]

Stay Your Course

Sep 27th, 2021

We’re two weeks post GlassBuild America, and if there’s one thing we learned, you don’t need a big crowd of attendees to have a good show. The number of attendees and exhibitors was down compared to previous years, though not surprising given the ongoing global pandemic. However, even weeks before the event, I talked to […]

Better, Smarter, Faster

Jul 26th, 2021

There are only five days left in July … five days. Where has the summer gone? Once we roll into August it always feels like summer is winding down, and in a sense it is, as we prepare to send the kids back to school. As many of us begin back-to-school shopping for the kids, […]

Going for Gold

Jun 28th, 2021

In less than a month the world will come together, as we all gather around our TVs to cheer for our countries’ Olympians. Yes, nothing can unite us like sports. I love the Olympics, especially the summer games–gymnastics, swimming, track and field … who will be the best and bring home the gold? If you’re […]

Project Showcase

Apr 26th, 2021

After more than 20 years writing about architectural glass, you can imagine that I’ve had the chance to cover some pretty unique and interesting projects. The first building project I covered was back in 2000, and was the Experience Music Project in Seattle. It was such a cool project to write about, and was actually somewhat […]

The View from Here

Mar 29th, 2021

I don’t always write the lead story for the daily USGNN e-newsletter, but the past couple of weeks have had me pulling double-duty. In addition to my USGlass editor responsibilities, I’ve also been compiling the USGNN lead stories. Sure, it’s added to my daily workload, but it’s also given me a chance to step back […]

Almost a Year

Feb 22nd, 2021

I’ve been thinking about this blog lately, and what I wanted to share this month. For weeks I was thinking about how it would post on the last Monday of the month, February 29 … until I realized today that there isn’t a February 29 in 2021. And doesn’t that pretty much sum up what […]

Good Things in Store

Jan 25th, 2021

Welcome to my first blog of 2021. We’re only about four weeks into the New Year, and things have already been busy. I’m not here to re-hash what happened or didn’t happen, where we’ve been or where we’re going … though I will admit I had a few laughs over the Bernie mitten memes last […]

Planning Ahead

Nov 30th, 2020

We’re nearing the end of 2020—and for most of us, we’ll be glad to see it go, as we look forward to the good that 2021 (hopefully) will bring. And let me add, I hope you all had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a safe and festive holiday season ahead. […]

Green is Good

Oct 26th, 2020

Ok, well, the words Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko said in the movie “Wall Street” were actually “Greed is good.” I like to think most of us would disagree with that. On the other hand, green is good. Think about all the things that are green in color that are good for us: leafy green […]
