New energies?

In the wake of the devastating quake in Japan, and the subsequent problems with th enuclear reactor, the tree huggers (I assume) are back out in full force condemning nuclear power.

I for one think they're nuts. I'm a big environment fan, you know that, but I also follow the facts. Nuclear energy is safe, creates far less pollution than coal or oil, and produces more.

THe bad side is in the event of a problem the effects can be catastrophic. Doesn't happen often, but when it does it's news.

What about other energy sources?

Here is one, how trustworthy the data is I'm not sure, but interesting nonetheless:

Gonna have to check out food for people

I'm ashamed I've lived near this new store but have never ventured inside> i was dropping off the recycling the other day and I noticed the shop in a run down mini strip mall.


What a neat place, locally grown foods and breads.

Fantastic, will keep you posted on my adventure inside. This will really help any 100 mile diet ...

Meat meat meat meat fast

There's a crazy for the paleolithic diet. Periods of fasting, and periods of gorging, mostly on meant.

But does it really work. Do we really need to return to our primitive ways in order to live longer? Or have our bodies adapted to a different form of diet? I think we're ok with not tracking down deer meat and eating it all in a few sittings.... thta's just me though.
