I make artisan bread. I have burned 3 PRO 600 KA mixers in warranty which were all replaced. I am THEMAN @ FlameKA.com. But my mixers were plain. I wanted my mixer flamed but didn't have the money for an airbrush job. I knew life could be unfair but that didn't stop me from getting flames.Too cool! Check them out! Flame it up!
...We came, we saw, we baked some bread. But whatever your specialty know we feel your pan. We once had mixers that weren't Flamed. But now they envy us. Come. Join us. Flame it up!
The Voyage for Cleaner Energy is a worldwide lecture series and sailing expedition by Robert Swan and his team at 2041. The purpose of the voyage is to increase awareness about environmental issues related to climate change and inspire young people to lead the way in implementing practical, viable solutions.
The Voyage for Cleaner Energy will commence on April 8th, 2008 in San Francisco, California and will take Robert and his crew around the world to the largest emitters of greenhouse gases. Over the next five years Robert will journey to the U.S., Russia, Europe, China, and India, talking with university students, corporate executives, and government officials about their roles as leaders in tackling climate change and accomplishing sustainability.
Along the way, our ‘2041’ yacht will sail along the coasts and across oceans- powered solely by renewable energy- as a moving symbol of our global mission. At each port of call our team will demonstrate the use of solar, wind, and bio-fuels as affordable alternatives to carbon-based fuels. The ‘2041’ will carry students, civic leaders, and business representatives on each leg of her journey, further opening the lines of communication between individuals, companies, and communities around the world. - 2041.
Hannah graduated from Humboldt State University in the Redwood country of Northern California with a degree in Recreation Administration and a double minor in Business Administration and Peace and Conflict Resolution. She then lived in Malawi, Africa where she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer for 2 years. In Malawi, Hannah helped facilitate nutrition clinics with local health workers for women and their mal-nourished children. She also taught sign language to the deaf children and their teachers from the surrounding villages. A nature lover, she was fortunate to live at the base of beautiful Mt. Mulanje which she traversed and summited multiple times while in Malawi. Her dream is to spend her time on the water and the mountains promoting environmental awareness and sustainability through Ecotourism.Now...if you think you have challenges of finding organic, local foods nearby your house, think about the challenges that Hannah faces in various ports o'call around the world!
Hannah is currently working towards her Master’s degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies/Ecotourism in San Francisco, California, hopefully bringing her one step closer to accomplishing her dream. Being a crewmember on the Voyage for Cleaner Energy is an incredible opportunity for her. She gets to promote organic foods, farmers markets, bio-diesel, renewable energy and other sustainable methods of living all while sailing the seas! 2041 Voyage Team
It also seems they, like humans, need clean air to thrive.
A survey of bee health released Tuesday revealed a grim picture, with 36.1 percent of the nation's commercially managed hives lost since last year.
Last year's survey commissioned by the Apiary Inspectors of America found losses of about 32 percent.
This is the second year the association has measured colony deaths across the country. This means there aren't enough numbers to show a trend, but clearly bees are dying at unsustainable levels and the situation is not improving, said vanEngelsdorp, also a bee expert with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.- AP via SFGate
Haagen daz "hearts" honeybees. They think we all should, too.
Air pollution impedes bees' ability to find flowers. Air pollution interferes with the ability of bees and other insects to follow the scent of flowers to their source, a new study suggests. Their findings may help explain the current pollination crisis. - WaPo
I really enjoy the cherry products from Country Ovens. Seems they even have a blog, too....Cherry Chat! Check out their Cherry De-Lites....hey are De-Licious! And stop by their blog and give them a "hello!"
Door County fruit growers say last year's drought combined with an unusually large crop could result in fewer cherries this year.
Richard Weidman of the University of Wisconsin Peninsular Research Station says early signs show 25 percent to 50 percent fewer buds on cherry trees there. Weidman says trees were weakened last year when an unusually large crop coincided with a drought. The lack of moisture also made it harder for trees to get nutrients during the winter. - Chicago Tribune
