Pretty Architecture presents: Glass houses S2E4
Leroy M. Merritt, a Maryland native and real estate developer, built this waterfront home in Pasadena, Md., in 1986. Mr. Merritt, who founded a chain of gyms in Baltimore called Merritt Athletic Clubs, passed away in January 2010 at the age of 79. The home, which now belongs to members of Mr. Merritt’s family, was built as a weekend retreat.
It is called the ‘Glass House’ and has walls of windows offering views of the Magothy River, Broad Creek and Sillery Bay. The 9,700-square-foot home sits on 3½ acres and has four bedrooms. The master suite has a vaulted ceiling with recessed lighting.
Following his death, Mr. Merritt’s family decided to auction the home. ‘I decided the house needed a broader market than the regular real-estate industry can do,’ Ms. Stettinius says of her decision to introduce the auction option to the owners.
A sky full of stars
I think I have found someone that can last. “Someone”s. No matter where I go and when I come back, I believe in that they will always be here to welcome me back. I really love the school. It’s like my safe haven. These days with only a few people and those I love the most the school is so tranquil. Safe and sound. I just wanna spend time with the people I like. Eat nice food. Do retarded things. Fool around. Mug tgt. And heart to heart talk. Shout and scream at the beach. Cry on each other’s shoulders. How lucky I am to be able to meet them. Feeling happiest and blessed these days :)
Why am I so emotional over a tree??!

How your pet goldfish can help grow kitchen herbs
Back to the Roots, a company started by two UC Berkeley graduates, focuses on making products that promote sustainability in food. They’re behind those mushroom grow kits you may have seen at Whole Foods and now they’ve developed a product that uses aquaponics to grow plants. Above is a really great explanation of the science behind aquaponics food systems.
