Mr. Great Lakes writes more than this blog, by the way. Which explains why it isn’t updated as much as it should be. With that in mind, I offer a couple of items from the Mr. Great Lakes Grab Bag, written by me, about Michigan:
From OnEarth Magazine: Great Lakes Lessons for Students and Teachers
“School has never been so cool, now that teachers in Michigan (and anywhere else there’s a connection to the Internet) are tapping into the power of a living, breathing ecosystem: the Great Lakes.

From TreeHugger.com: America’s Oldest & Michigan’s First Net Zero Energy Home (Photos)
If you want a super, energy-efficient home, you have to build new, right? Not necessarily. A 110-year-old Victorian home in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is being touted as America’s oldest net-zero energy house, and the first of its kind in the state.
