Out of the Blue

Happy Earth Day, as today is the 40th anniversary of devoting 0.27% of the year to environmental concerns. Somewhat coincidentally, we just put a compost bin in the backyard of the BlueTower over the weekend after our village got a bulk discount from the folks that sell them. We don't really generate that much compostable waste, so we are not going to generate that much compost, either, but I do find the prospect of creating fertile soil out of waste very appealing as a science project.

Stalwart reader nin asks us to keep the victims of this oil rig blast in our thoughts, as he is close to the family of one of the missing workers who are going through a heart-wrenching time right now.

I only recently read that you cant get cane-sugar anywhere in the states. Is that really true??

No, that is not even remotely true. What is true is that an increasing number of products in the U.S. have switched from cane sugar to high-fructose corn syrup as an ingredient, as farm subsidies keep corn prices artificially low and production impractically high.
