esolar raises $130 million to build steam power plant

If I could put off washing the tower of dishes one more night, I’d be writing about eSolar’s funding tonight… If you had a blog, and no dishes to wash, what would you be writing about?

    There are all kinds of new technologies worthy of investment. Esolar may be one.

    First Solar ticker symbol FSLR) ain’t cheap but is growing by leaps and bounds, as is Solar Power (ticker symbol SPWR).

    If you’re into recycling, there’s a penny stock, ECOO, that is building several new plants using a waterless recycling system for plastic recycling. Water cost is a major expense and pollutant issue for most plastic recycling. ECOO’s technology eliminates this issue.

    Someimes, one family doing all it can do seems like a drop in the bucket, especially when Chinese families are buying their first car and effectively erasing your hardwon reduced carbon footprint and magnifying it by a factor of 10.

    But I think investing in new technologies is a better use of our money, once we’ve done what we can do … from fixing up our own homes and apartments and recycling to rain barrels to chickens and kale in the front yard.

    I even think Ford and GM and Chrysler stock is a good investment, especially Ford. They are doing a LOT to improve their offerings and to improve their own green standards.

    I DON’T like it that they are moving out of Ypsilanti. And I think they owe Ypsilanti a TON OF BUCKS in reparations for past sins. I wish City Council would sue them for leaving us with a totally polluted site. But the stock is a bargain. Love the sinner, hate the sin … that’s what Bishop Sheen would say. I agree.

    Let’s sue the bastards!

    I feel weird pushing my own project but since you asked I’m looking for a petite small-handed Romulus-area redhead to usher me into the glorious world of anal fisting.

    I would also like to remind people out there that it’s national Be Kind to Companion Animals month.

    I have a debilitating fear of apples.

    I have a club foot that looks like of like an apple. Better keep away from me.

    Sarah, does it resemble a small apple or a large apple? It’s important.

    I’ve been told that I have very delicate hands, but I don’t go to Romulus.

    And I wish I still had money to invest, Ed.

    I would talk about how I have a sore throat and raw nasal passages since having your own blog seems to me like the one place you can complain about every little ailment and get sympathy.

    Harkening to my pissy diatribe above …

    After ridding itself of some of its greatest assets (and costs) … namely, its people … NOT by designing fuel-efficient vehicles … Ford shows a profit!

    OK, you stiffed Ypsilanti … NOW you owe us … and WE KNOW you have the bucks.

    GO if you’re gonna go, but you OWE Ypsilanti as you leave behind several hundred unemployed and their families, plus a polluted site.

    Pfizer did a FEW good things for Ann Arbor before it kissed off … how’bout you, Mr. Bill … didn’t your yoga drumming teach you anything about how you touch the earth and what you will reap in the next life? Didn’t the Dalai Lama teach you ANYTHING?

    Look out Rawsonville. Someday, down the road, you’ll get yours.

    I stopped by an apple orchard today on my way into work and had someone look at my foot. His professional opinion was that it looked like a .4 pound Granny Smith.

    It’s ambitious, but I think I can handle it. Are you within driving distance of Romulus? If you’re not sure about appearing on video don’t worry. I have access to a gorilla mask.

    Yours truly,

    Ford has some much more fuel efficient vehicles in the pipeline. Hold on to your hat there. They even have a B car coming.

    Ford’s cuts went after a lot more than just people too.

    If the dishes were ever done and if I had a blog, I’d write about McCain’s speech a few days ago. He said he was pro-choice. Of course he was talking about health care; but I think his comments could easily be taken out of context and a good deal could be made about his pro-abortion stance and his support of gays to choose their marriage partners.

    I believe that, JOF, but those plans in the pipeline never seem to eke their way to the showroom.

    Why did they sell Think? The Think cars are coming out from another company later this year.

    Think was a Jac Nasser acquisition that didn’t really fit the rest of Ford. Ford couldn’t figure out how to make it profitable (for Ford).

    That B car will be out next year! And, it’s got a really cool transmission too.

    I’d probably be blogging about the Delta-Northwest merger or the United-US Air merger talks.

    I might also be blogging about the confessed contract killer Vincent Smothers and/or the shutting down of the DPD ballistics lab due to corruption which they’re trying to mask as incompetence.

    Vincent Smothers is a great name for a contract killer.

    Tom and Dick killed at the Purple Onion in ’61.
