Can't wait to try this out, and only a couple blocks from my house.

Check out at 22:00 (http://youtu.be/2hUEg7Aq9d4?t=22m00s) and listen to how vaccines work, and why herd immunity is important. This is why the high rates of un-vaccinated children at some of the schools in North America.

I just heard about this thing a couple of months ago and when I went looking I couldn't find any information so I promptly went on with my life.

Its a good thing I didn't have $500 burning a hole in my pocket and tried one.  I would have been pissed.

This is a cool series.  I just watched the 100 years of Iran, and it was great.

This looks like my project for this summer.  Hook it up to a rainwater barrel and a solar pack for energy and I have a hands off irrigation system for our small garden.

I can even add on to it by adding alarms for barrel water level, etc.

Gardening improves health and quality of life, connecting us to our local environment. Plus, you can eat organic fruits and veggies at very little cost. Woo! Alas, remembering to water can sometimes take a backseat to our bus...

For everyone not in Canada, yes it's really this bad. See you in Spring, I hope.

The picture in the post isn't an #arcflash. I like that there is more awareness in the safety community of arc flash. http://ow.ly/IK29W
MAKE-IT-SAFE MONDAY Arc flashes commonly take place when strong, high-amperage currents travel, or “arc”, through the air. This most commonly occurs when high voltage differences exist across a space between the conductors ...

I read the other reviews for 2J's and I see there is a lot of comparing to other areas and how they aren't as good. Well if I was to compare 2J's to my favorite market it would get low marks too. Something like judging a fish at how it can climb a tree. (paraphrased quote from the internet) 2J's is just the thing I was looking for in Great Falls. I spend a lot of time here for work and find that the Albertsons of the world don't have all the items that I like. Mung beans for example. 2J's has a great selection of local produce, organic and not (but don't get me started on the virtues of shipping cal-organic and leaving your local farmer to suffer). They also have friendly staff that will point you in the right direction, and the tea selection is great, the meat selection is of high quality (and local) and the refrigerated produce is a great touch (although I would take the heirloom tomatoes out of there). All said I will be doing my weekly shopping there for the duration of my stay, and will be back on future trips.

We visited here for a quick bite on a Sunday afternoon. The food was great diner fare and the fries were some of the best that I have in the city so far. Typically the fries are soggy and very greasy, these were golden and crisp. If you are in the mood for some good diner fare head on over. It is on my list to try again.

My favorite office in St. John's. If I feel the need to get some work done out of my home office this is where I go. The internet is fast, plenty of receptacles and good coffee. The owners are nice and the staff working are great.
