Hope for Alana, and Miscellaneous

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening! Some exciting things have happened in the last week and I thought I would share them with you.

First, I would like to share an Indiegogo I believe we can all help out on and get them to (and maybe over) their goal. It's called Hope for Alana.  Alana's father died two weeks before his daughter's birth, never being able to hold his little girl. Alana's mother, having to pay for the funeral, has very little money for basic baby needs like diapers. She has to go back to work in 3-4 weeks. Please open up your pockets and help. If you cannot contribute, spread the word. Thank you.

On a brighter note, the filmmakers of Tiny: the Movie generously donated a screening of their movie at HoneyFern! It is still unclear if it will be in person or over Skype, but it is very generous of them! Thank you, Christopher and Merete of Tiny. The film has its world premier at the SXSW film festival in March, so it will be sometime after that (we think).

Speaking of tiny house movies, lately I have been obsessed with this awesome 20-minute video of Zach and Molly's 'Quest for Powder' . Hopefully you will understand my obsession.

I might be the only one that noticed this, but their stairs and loft follow the Fibonacci number. The Fibonacci number is like the shape of snail shells and is found everywhere in nature and architecture.)
This week I will be working on my composting toilet for the tiny house; I decided to go with a sawdust composting toilet because it's cheap, but just in case I am installing plumbing for an RV hookup because I want to be #1 in the business of #2. Like a boss.
Have a great week...
