There is nothing new under the sun; all things once forgotten only seem new again.

Look up the book "Yesterday's Houses of Tomorrow: Innovative American Homes, 1850 to 1950" Web Link. It chronicles some deservedly forgotten inorganic notions like the Fuller Dymaxion Web Link and Web Link, as well as some useful ideas that really worked for a while Web Link.

Above all don't forget the once-affordable, critically-acclaimed homes for everyman built by Palo Alto's Joseph Eichler.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
