Tell me this... when you hang up your boots or your power suit or whatever for the final time what do you want to be remembered by? I look around my office walls that are covered with mementos and memories and my heart is filled with some wonderful events but there is one message I once received that sticks out in my mind. I had received an award and one old friend and acquaintance from the safety field sent his congratulations and he said that I should be happy with my accomplishments because somewhere one more worker could go home to his wife and family safely because of my work. As I look back on that now I believe and truly hope that his remark was based on fact. For sixty five years now I have worked in some way on worker safety. It is an attitude that needs renewal in some way every day. I'm getting more conscious of my own safety needs. A simple thing like walking out to my car requires vigilance because it is so easy to trip and fall when your knee replacements are hurting and you just can't leap over tall buildings like you used to with ease. I'm sure that I will be looking out for others safety for the rest of my life because it is just a part of who I am. It is kind of rewarding to realize that you did make a difference, even if it was in a small way.

The Nature of Dwellings: The Architecture of David Hovey [Hardcover]
David Hovey is building some of the best modernist houses in the world, and the world is starting to notice. Hovey has made a name for himself as the torchbearer for modern residential design, a designation he shares with a growing number of architects who've returned to pure modernism. His houses merge into the landscapes in which they're situated, and with names like Cloud Chaser and Rain Maker, their ties to the land and climate are made clear. Hovey picks up where Frank Lloyd Wright left off, forging ahead with explorations of simple materials, rectilinear geometries, and structural innovation all in the service of free-flowing floor plans that merge indoor and outdoor into a cohesive whole. An extensive essay examines Hovey's unorthodox approach to architecture and explains how he has managed to build a successful career by staying true to his modernist ideals.

Located in the Town & Country Shopping Center between Camelback and Highland on the west site of 20th Street.
It all started in the 50s... Would you believe they started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It's true. Way back in 1958. They were called Pronto Markets. In '67, their founder, the original Trader Joe, changed their name (yes, to Trader Joe's) and the way we do business.
They made the stores bigger (if you can imagine), decked the walls with cedar planks and donned our crew in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, they started putting innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods in the "Trader Joe's" name. That cut their costs and saved you money. Still does.
