Free Beer

by jhwygirl

Bet that gets a few clicks. :-)

Lots of interesting events going on this week in the Zoo, so before I get to the free beer, I’ll remind everyone that long-range transportation meetings are being held this week to help the community Envision Missoula. These interactive public meetings are being held tonight and tomorrow from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the the University Center, Ballroom North. And if you want to ensure enough free light refreshments, contact Mirtha Beccerra at Planning & Grants, 258-4989.

Also this week, on Friday, the Montana Food Bank Network (MFBN) is kicking off this years giving season with a Groove & Give event at the Badlander. 5 bucks gets you in the door to see local R&B band Zeppo MT. Don’t forget, also, to give to the Montana Bloggers Fund for MFBN. Our goal this year is to surpass last years $1,600. Do help out if you can.

Now to the free beer PSA – as we all know that free beer is definitely a public service…but you’ll have to work for it – click the link below to get to the free beer.

I came across an article in an architectural periodical today as I sat in a waiting room. Got me thinking, so I went googling – you know me and affordable housing. Consider the numbers below as some food for thought.

Average size and cost of an American home:

1950 – 983 square feet/$14,500

1970 – 1,400 square feet/$26,600

1973 – 1500 square feet/$32,500

1974 – 1,695 square feet/$34,900

1984- 1,780 square feet/$227,000

2004 – 2,330 square feet/$274,500

2005 – 2,434 square feet/$297,000

Average bedroom size today – 12 x 12

Average bedroom size 30 years ago – 9 x 10

Average family size today – 2.6

Average family size 30 years ago – 3.1

If anyone wants to bother factoring in inflation, that’d be interesting.
