20 Under 40


Forgive me....but I am SUCH a mom!

My son Blake, was nominated as one of 20 young people under the age of 40 in the Salem Oregon area of young professionals of recognition. At age 31, he is currently the builder of the first Passive House on the Pacific Coast. Passive House certified homes are the newest platinum plus standard leaving all other energy efficient homes miles behind.

Being one of a small group of extremely hard working young people in an area not always as recognized as those in the media, or sports, or the arts, or politics, I need help to cultivate a voting fan base (forgive me my favorite and only son for being a mom!)

Could you please take a minute, go to the link below and cast a vote for him? You may vote once a day...and I don't know how many days as I don't have the newspaper, as we are in Eagle River, Alaska right now.

Forgive a very proud mama her moment now and vote for my son, Blake...the 9th one down. I want him to know how proud this mama is of her amazingly hard working son! I am so proud I can't stand it...such a quiet, humble boy growing up....the kind that worked extra, extra hard, and was very humble.But I'm busting my buttons, now...or maybe it was the berry cheesecake followed by the Boston Cream Pie.....Michele writing from Eagle River Alaska...

    Hi, I am Mei from Malaysia and I have been a follower of your blog for sometime now. You are very generous to share your works and they are indeed beautiful!

    I have voted for your son - his credentials are truly impressive. Not many young people will take the road less traveled but your son has done it and I can see the passion in him doing what he believes would contribute to a better world. You must be one proud mama!
