    Hello everyone, what is everyone talking about today?

    Is it about politics?

    Incredible, marvelous web site layout! The length of time have you been blogging and site-building for? you’re creating running a blog appear easy. The common seem of your website is great, together with the articles!

  4. Untoffmop September 6, 2011 at 4:20 am

    In it something is. I will know, many thanks for an explanation.

  5. tryecrot August 26, 2011 at 8:55 am

    Yes there should realize the opportunity to RSS commentary, quite simply, CMS is another on the blog.

  6. PolpravHalf August 13, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

  7. Jedibabe July 14, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    A berry-picking picnic along the Lochsa River would be so much better with all this great loot!

  8. thevicagirl thevicagirl July 12, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I just attended a great picnic spot. It was across the street from a hike I had just been on to Ensign Peak in the Salt Lake Valley, where you can see the whole valley. It was raining so we went to the park across the street and ate under the vines. However, the top of Ensign Peak is a wonderful place to eat a picnic at, overlooking the valley.

  9. LoLosDosPerros July 12, 2011 at 12:58 pm

    Picnic by the river or in our own mountain bungalow backyard with the dogs and a couple of local craft beers in Asheville, NC!

  10. Matt July 11, 2011 at 7:29 pm

    I live in San Jose, California for three years. My family loves going to Lake Chabot for Saturday picnic… Enjoy the sunshine, green, and frisbee!!

  11. eddiematt July 11, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    I live in Los Altos, California for three years and my family loves going to Lake Chabot for Saturday picnic… Enjoy the sunshine, green, and playing frisbee!!

  12. carlawingett July 9, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    On warm summer days we love to drive up the coast to Big Sur, in California. We take a bottle of local Paso Robles wine and lots of snacks from our Farmers Market. My favorite picnic food is slices of baguette, spread with mascarpone cheese, topped with fresh figs and a drizzle of local honey.. our 1 year old daughter Harper even loves them!

  13. mabpab July 7, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    My favorite green picnic spot is on the 11th Street beach on Tybee Island Georgia. We were blessed to live there for a year, and were able to enjoy the coast for all four seasons.

  14. beth.dunlop July 6, 2011 at 10:17 am

    My new favorite picnic spot is the brilliant SoundScape park in front of the also-brilliant new home of the New World Symphony (the former designed by Adriaan Geuze of West 8 and the latter by Frank Gehry). Pack a supper, add in a bottle of wine, grab a blanket and settle in for the sights and sounds of a concert broadcast (they call it a Wallcast) against the building wall. It’s amazing!

  15. kmajor616 July 5, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    I would LOVE to win this picnic set. It is so gorgeous! For sure I love nature and eating outside. One of my favorite places is at Edgewater park in Cleveland Ohio. I’m just a few miles away from the beach and there are a number of lovely parks in the area but Edgewater is the loveliest. Typically I will eat my picnic either on the edge of the pier with my toes in the water or I will eat with my feet in the surf. It is so soothing feeling the sand between my toes while enjoying a lovely sandwich. Pun intended.

  16. benvolta July 5, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    in my soon to be front yard of our first house … which is across from a city park

  17. mejustme July 5, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    It’s hard to beat a summer picnic. And there are so many great locations to choose from. But I think right now I’d have to say my favorite is the beach located only 15 blocks from my house — Ocean Beach here in San Francisco. I only moved here 4 months ago and I still revel in how wonderful it is to have the ocean so close to my home.

  18. shellthebell July 5, 2011 at 8:12 am

    I would love to pack up a picnic with my husband and our new dog, Dillan and head to the lakeshore! We’d take along some farmer’s market finds and perhaps a nice bottle of wine and watch the sunset.

  19. jendwarner July 4, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Well, I love picnics. I grew up on Sanibel Island, FL and had quite a few “sandy picnics” on the beach; Outside Munich, Germany had some “amazing-view picnics” in the Alps; Enjoyed a “hot, dry, dusty picnic” with my husband and puppy in Sedona, AZ; had a “wet & slightly sticky rainforest picnic” in Washington state; but like so many have said, my favorite picnic spot is with family at home in Ohio. I lost my grandparents this past year, but was lucky to inherit their picnic table which had been on their back porch my entire life. Lots of simple meals-tuna fish sandwiches, pickles, chips, & iced tea, along with heated games of UNO or Eucher were had on that table over the last 40 years. It’s amazing how many memories can be tied to a place or a piece of furniture. Really great memories! Happy summer, everyone!!

  20. dmcarter July 4, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    Favorite spot- either Cambridge public library or anywhere on Harvard Campus :)

  21. amiecrs July 4, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    My favorite picnic spot is at my boyfriends mothers house chilling with his family. They have this little patio that reminds me of a bistro combined with gorgeous trees, a lush lawn, and there is always a breeze. And of course, I love chilling with them, always a good conversation to be had.

  22. alexandra preis July 4, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    I love spending a nice summer day at a lake, swimming and generally enjoying the water. If I’m not swimming, I love lounging in the shade and reading. Simple pleasures :D

  23. heatherleevee July 4, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I’m torn between our own private (work in progress) back yard and our favorite grassy area overlooking Puget Sound in Pt. Defiance Park, here in Tacoma, WA.

  24. TinaDuprey July 4, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    My husband & I love to picnic in the Outer Banks of North Carolina @Hatteras Beach. The sand dunes are beautiful, and the beach is so clean & quiet. It’s wonderful that people respect it like they do.

  25. eug July 4, 2011 at 11:39 am

    Tomales Bay oyster farm. They have grills and picnic tables with shucking stations. Hardly vegetarian, but when you’ve gotten a fresh bag of oysters, cut some lemons, uncapped the hot sauce, it will not matter!

  26. VegNwmn July 4, 2011 at 10:05 am

    I’ve had many lovely picnics in many states and spots. One of my favorites is at the swimming hole at The Farm Community.

  27. ROBYN ELY July 3, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    I reside in Hawaii and enjoy picnic’s on the mountain range overlooking the views of the beautiful beach views !

  28. loken415 July 3, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    My favorite green picnic spot would have to be Sutro Baths in San Francisco, a modern ruins on the edge of the peninsula. It is quite a visually striking location complete with rocks, sands, wild flowers, grasslands, and crashing waves against a majestic blue sky. The crumbling and nostalgic stone structures remind me of a time past where spacious rooms, elevators, alcoves, corridors, gardens, and of course, outdoor baths that existed more than a century ago. It is the perfect getaway from the busy city life, nothing but nature, cliffs, wet sand, and salty ocean breezes. My friends and I always come there with a basket full of freshly picked fruits, several types of cheeses and crackers and a few bottles of good Sonoma wines. With good books and good conversation, a picnic there can easily be the best way to spend a sunny summer afternoon.

  29. melissa mc July 3, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    Love the beaches of NC like Cape Lookout and Myrtle Beach — will be there with some Cranberry Orange bagels, and ty for the chance!

    Vegan Fried Green Tomatoes :)

    ½ cup whole wheat or unbleached all purpose flour
    ½ cup unsweetened soy milk (plain works too, but is a little sweeter)
    ½ cup yellow cornmeal
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    ½ teaspoon onion powder
    ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    (feel free to season to taste with pinches of cumin, curry powder, smoked paprika, etc.)
    2 medium-sized firm green tomatoes, cores removed and sliced into 1/3” slices
    ¼ inch canola oil in a 10-inch skillet

    Heat oil over medium-high heat until a drop off water sizzles briskly. Watch oil closely and remove from heat if it starts to smoke. Meanwhile, place flour, soy milk and cornmeal into three separate small bowls. Divide the salt equally among all three. Add ¼ teaspoon of both the garlic and onion powders and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper to both the flour and the cornmeal. Stir to combine well.

    Dip each tomato slice into flour, then soy milk, then cornmeal, coating well. Place into oil and cook for a couple of minutes or until golden brown. Carefully flip and repeat on the opposite side. Drain on paper towel or brown paper. Sprinkle with a little more salt and serve with the sauce of your choice. I prefer my Tahini Topping which can be dressed up in myriad ways. I like a plain version of the topping with a sprinkling of capers.

    inhabitat ALWAYS has fun and exciting things on their facebook page-I love the stories-keep them coming-and this contest is awesome-my husband and I would love to win so we can have lots of campfires just like the night we got engaged!

  33. jfreiheit July 3, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    A picnic on our new recycled plastic deck in the green-living Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee, WI that sits right on Lake Michigan where neighbors do everything from “Move Grass, Grow Food” in their own yards to replanting wetlands along the coast. This set would be perfect to help our efforts of educating our neighbors all about the materials we choose for our outdoor living space!

  34. Anne Horne July 3, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    My favorite place for a picnic is on a wooden picnic table, in the mountains, at the beach, anywhere inbetween, and on the way to the destination; stop, get out the ole’ tablecloth, and the food in ice chests and containers of “homemade” goodies. You can’t beat an old fashioned picnic table, where you are side-by-side or face-to-face with friends and loved ones.

  35. ladybuggy July 3, 2011 at 11:14 am

    The Hollywood Bowl!!!! A must at least once every summer! Thanks!

  36. louiseb130 July 3, 2011 at 10:26 am

    There is a bayou near my childhood home in Louisiana where we loved to picnic.

  37. paulapet55 July 3, 2011 at 10:24 am

    My ideal picnic would be in the mountains with wine and cheese. I would want my close friends and family surrounding me. What could be better than that?

  38. greengrrrl July 3, 2011 at 10:19 am

    Now, before you stop me to say “Hey! You’re in Canada, we can’t ship this super awesome chair to you” let me finish.

    Picnic stuff, I could use – and it would be small and easy to ship. We picnic all the time, my daughter, husband, and I. And this picnic set looks marvelous! The chair? I’d ask that you donate it to a local charity (green or humanitarian). They could use it or use it to raise funds.

    All in all? I’d say my winning would be a darn good thing. :)

    Kayaking the Flathead River near Perma, Mt. Just beautiful. Kayaking, fishing, places to pull over and have a picnic. Relaxing and many photo ops.

    Just today drove over to Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis – a perfect perfect perfect summer day. Bike path, sun, shade, people watching, relaxing. Wow!

    I really do love the Socrates Sculpture Park, (Long Island City) New York

  46. amysyb July 2, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    My favorite picnic days begin with a bike ride over to the west side of Manhattan. Setting up anywhere along the Hudson River greenway is the best break from the pulse of the city. Not everyone knows how this area used to look… I for one love to take full advantage of all the beautiful plants and renovations that have been implemented recently. River water flowing by, sail boats, happy people out enjoying good weather, and a basket full of cheese, fruits, and nuts. Delightful.

  47. Chadndana July 2, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    Picnic under an old Oak tree…

  48. tanitagray July 2, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    What a great gift to show my kids “green” picnic items. And I’d love to watch them enjoy this set from that great lounge chair!

  49. wanderer July 2, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    ON a nice summer day we like to go an hour north of our house to a local State park. it’s got lots of green open spaces for picnics as well as a walking trail around a lake. Peaceful and relaxing.

  50. cafenordean July 2, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    if i can’t go to that serene place pictured above behind that stunning house, I would go to Cannon Beach, Oregon, sit in the sand,and watch the kids play.

    Under the olive and cypress trees at Arcosanti, looking out at the desert landscape of Arizona! It is quite a surreal desert oasis.

    My favorite picnic place? Ivy Creek Campground, Mineral County, Colorado. Spruce, breeze, creek, heaven!

  54. betsydesmond July 2, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    My favorite picnic spot is my backyard, where I pick fresh vegetables from my garden for my favorite vegetarian picnic dish:

    Black Bean and Mango Salad (recipe courtesy of Bush’s Beans)

    1 15.8 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
    2 cups mango, diced
    1 cup sweet red bell pepper, diced
    6 green onions, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 seeded Jalapeno pepper, minced or hot sauce to taste
    Salt to taste

    Please consider this my contest entry for the chair and picnic set. Thank you.

    Hocking Hills Ohio is by far the most gorgeous place on this planet to have summer (and any season) picnics. Old Man’s Cave and the many scenic waterfalls and views that are in the immediate area is Mother Nature at her finest. The entire area is so much “eye candy” that it is almost overwhelming. To sit in one of your fine Emmet Lounge chairs and soak up the surroundings while having a summer picnic is the ultimate treat and something that everybody on this planet should experience. I’m hoping that this post alone spurs somebody to go there and experience the finest artistry ever created.
    Thanks for the chance to win this great prize! I get your newsletters and am a fan on facebook.

    what a great prize this would be to have! My most beautiful & favorite place to have a summer picnic would be in Hocking Hills Ohio. There are beautiful caves and fantastic waterfalls that is by far the prettiest place I’ve ever seen in my life and that setting is where I would love to spend more time sitting in your fantastic chair and soaking in the incredible sights.

    I love to have a picnic in the mountains. Enjoying fresh air, spectacular views and great friends is the best way to picnic!

  64. kimbergill July 2, 2011 at 10:00 am

    Oh that is the most beautiful outdoor chair! I wonder if I will have to purchase a whole set for our school. Our favorite picnic spot is just across the street in this vast wildflower meadow just at the foot of Talcott Mountain in Simsbury, CT. Being surrounded by hummingbirds, red finches, and sweet smelling sunshing air is perfect for any day away from the world. Thank you for this very cool and very summertime-inspired collection.

    Best,

  65. theresaweb July 2, 2011 at 8:20 am

    My favorite picnic place is the beach on Long Island, specifically West Lido Beach. It’s a little known town beach because the entrance is not clearly marked. A perfect beach picnic would have cold ripe peaches, pink wine and cheese and crackers! Oh I must plan this now!

  66. csheal July 2, 2011 at 7:12 am

    My favorite picnic spot is anyplace I can walk, bike or take public transport to. When I picnic I like to get the full outdoor experience and I ALWAYS like to be eco-friendly! :o)

    I like so much picnics near the beach, here in valencia, in the arenas beach. i’m from spain.

  71. sahalmerchant sahalmerchant July 2, 2011 at 5:12 am

    My fav. picnic spot is at my grandma’s in Goa, India. Not far from her house is a spot where part of the sea comes inland cutting off the beach from a small hill. You can walk or drive by road to the side of the mountain. Its perfect for a picnic. You sit on the base of the hill and watch the waves crash inland, right below your feet. You can sense the power of nature. Thats just perfect.

  72. brenna July 2, 2011 at 3:28 am

    My favorite picnic spot I just discovered a couple of months ago. I got to take my 7 year old to a science camp in the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument and after a long (long for kids) hike we were at the top of the hills where we had our lunch. Since it was the National Monument we had to be extra careful to not even leave any crumbs behind. It was gorgeous and I would love to go back.

  73. JeannieC July 2, 2011 at 3:21 am

    My favorite picnic is with my little dog MimiSo or shared with a couple of girlfriends (the doggies love to wrestle).
    Ocean View Park overlooking the Monterey Bay is always lots of fun for a game of catch. We’re planning to build a covered deck (and change out the windows to low-e) on a friend’s beach house duplex near the park very soon… the chair would be a perfect place to sit overlooking her new back yard.
    A great house warming present.

  74. ziiig July 2, 2011 at 1:18 am

    I go down to Commencement Bay (in Tacoma, WA) and read by the water hoping for news of the birth of my first grandchild.

    My husband and I once had a sunset picnic on the beach in front of our hotel in Tulum, Mexico. The simple, delicious food was complemented by the soft breeze, waning rosy light, and the music of the waves

    My favorite picnic spot is on top of a canyon overlooking the great Rift Valley.

  79. Carrottop4u July 1, 2011 at 11:32 pm

    My favorite picnic is taking my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter Lily to Smugglers Notch, Vermont. It is a little slice of heaven between Jeffersonville and Stowe, Vermont, high in the hills with winding 15 mph roads and wonderful picnic areas and hiking trails. Lily and I love to share Vermont cheese, freshly baked organic bread and “baby” oranges (mandarins) along with apple juice for her and bottled water for me. How nice it would be to have your picnic basket to carry our feast! Happy Holidays.

  81. rosemari July 1, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    I like to have a green picnic anywhere my friends and family want to be. Relationships, good food, a spot for lively conversation or a long walk afterward… what could be more delicious! We’d SO enjoy this set.

  82. inkoeht July 1, 2011 at 11:03 pm

    our fave picnic spot is outside our camper that is parked right at the water at carpinteria beach. we’re excited to finally take our baby girl, who is now one!

  83. tofucute July 1, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    The beach! And the warmer the water the better. But most often I go to Laguna Beach. It’s close, beautiful, and scuba diving makes me really hungry!

  84. carolynishis July 1, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    I love the park at Cumberland Gap,TN.It looks like a rain forest and it is not crowded and so peaceful.I am a fan on Facebook as Carolyn Barnett and i subscribe via email.

  85. reveleri July 1, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    My favorite summer picnic spot is on top of Mount Tabor in Portland, OR. Nothing beats the views you get, on a cloudless summer day, of Mount Hood and the city of Portland! Add to it the lively atmosphere you get when everyone comes out of their dwellings to enjoy the sun. Absolutely relaxing!

    Watermelon Drink

    Take 1/2 a watermelon and remove the shell and seeds. Cut into pieces and place into a blender until 3/4 full. Add a 1/2 cup of water and blend. Add sugar as needed for flavor. Delicious!

  86. jonbonjovious July 1, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    A picnic requires three things to make it amazing: good food, good people and location, location, location!

    I have a basket ready to roll that contains an Italian Feast.
    I’d choose the company of good people I’ve known for 25 years.
    The location:
    Green can be subtle and lush, but the Utah desert is divine!
    I’d pack my picnic to the rolling red sand dunes of Southern Utah. The sound of nature silent and then whispers of wildlife. The sage scattered terrain that offers little shade makes the sun’s rays a warm delight.

    I just met and started dating an amazing, sweet, cute guy. We met at Egin Lake in the Sand Dunes locally. I think it would be amazing to take a picnic back there together. The amazing design of the Emmett Lounge Chair and green picnic set makes this date even better. Good design sells a good date as well as compliments and shows who I am and what I am all about. Thanks for the opportunity.
