Leaning toward the New One

Image by Me

Rain is pounding away the snow now. All the grit and grime is on the surface. Things look rather bleak. I awoke to the sound of the falling rain and prayed for colder weather. Snow chants. Now it is the short sprint to the next Fun Time, New Year's Eve. A crispy clean and New Year is on the way. 2008 is sure to be an interesting one. Well at the very least it will for some lucky clod who garners the mandate to take the helm of this squirrel's nest of a country.

Well, look at that!!! AM news tells me we are expecting snow this afternoon. Damn, I am powerful!

Tobwabba Aborignal Art Gallery

"The art created by the Tobwabba Artists is contemporary coastal Aboriginal Art. It is the art of an Aboriginal group with an extensive and highly destructive contact history who are reclaiming their Aboriginality through the creation of their own modern, urban art form."

"Sony has developed a eco-friendly battery. The prototype battery is encased by a vegetable-based plastic, and generates it’s power from sugars. I can not stress enough that if you get your hands on one, you do not want to eat it.

The battery can generate enough electricity to power a pair of speakers and a mp3 player. It works by pouring a sugar solution into the battery and then enzymes go do their thing and break down the sugars and generate electricity. The battery test cell had an output of fifty milliwatts.

Sony plans to produce the batteries commercially sometime in the future." (source

Simple Roasted Carrots

You're tired of all the sauces and stuffings and baking, right? This one is truly simple and yummy. Take a bag of carrots. Wash the carrots and put them in a roasting pan, baking pan, cookie sheet, whatever you have...drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, sprinkle 1 tsp sugar, add pepper to taste. Grate a fresh nutmeg over top, just a little for that special zing of flavor. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. I generally do a bunch of root veggies at once, adding squashes, beets, turnips and sometimes add shallots or garlic. Go simple. Go wild. Just roast em up!
