Burt’s House

Friday, May 9th, 2008 | Posted by David

This is where Burt Shavitz of Burt’s Bees fame lives.  No running water or electricity.  Look carefully at the door size and chair on the porch to get an idea of its size.  That is Burt walking towards it.

    Love the house, and no running water and electricity are not the issue most city slickers talk about now.

    Folks lived for hundreds of years without running water and electricity and lived healthy, clean, happy lives and did very well without the electricity.

    Burt Shavitz, of Burt's bees seems to be living in sync with nature, something that Grandma Gordon, the Seneca Wisdomkeeper, famous for writing books about getting back to the natural way of things (such as "Voice of the Hawk Elder")would likely get along with Burt very well.

    I included the web address of the Longest Walk 2, ie http://longestwalk.org because issues of nature and Mother Earth are addresses, and in the [Public] forum you can learn more about Grandma Gordon, Grandmother of Indian Country, the Broomstick Revolution she is gifting to America and more.

    Again love the photo of the house.

    Also while I did not address branding, I do understand some things about branding. I as around when Craig of Craigslist was struggling with the issue of the name of his company, and my recommendation was to stick with the Craigslist name. Likely I was only one of many with that same recommendation.
