More evidence that diet soda might not be so harmless.

Artificial sweeteners seem to cause changes in gut bacteria which may lead to changes in glucose tolerance (and eventually obesity, diabetes, etc).

I store them in a cupboard.  Since they boiled and sealed there is very very little chance of any bacteria in them (and two years running we've never had any go bad).

It's totally fine to keep the seeds.

Really cute dog portraits
Here you'll find the people and pet photography of Elke Vogelsang (wieselblitz.de). Please send enquiries to: info[at]wieselblitz.de I'm a working photographer based in Hildesheim, Germany, and I make my living taking pictures of people and pets. My favourite artist is nature, which I try to imitate while adding my own personal view of life, the universe, and everything in between. My still life and food portfolio: http://500px.com/...

Hi Tessa, how is our little ADA?

These cute little puffs are part of the reason off-leash areas are being reduced in the GGNRA. Their silly parents make nests out in the open on beaches where rambunctious pups can trash them. I suppose I feel a bit more sympathetic now.
 
It's been a busy year for staff and volunteers helping save threatened snowy plovers! So far 23 eggs have been brought to us, and we’re caring for 10 chicks behind the scenes. We are also celebrating the release of two plovers back to the wild--the first of the season! Learn more: http://mbayaq.co/1x7WHao

+Dan Pupius, +Ada MacPup, and I may have eaten 3 pounds of Buffalo Wings for dinner last night.  (But to be fair, a lot of that poundage was bones.)

The technique for getting crispy skin in the oven really works.  Although it requires some advanced planning, it's really easy (and much less scary than a deep frier).  Thanks for the tip +Erick Armbrust.

We ate them with this Blue Cheese Romaine Wedge (because romaine is a bit more nutritious than iceberg) from Smitten Kitchen (http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2007/12/from-aruba-on-an-iceberg-wedge/), which had a good amount of spare dressing for dipping the wings.
Note: Read about the science behind the wings here....

SF311 is like a bug tracker for the city. You can report things like trash, graffiti, potholes, etc.  And from the looks of it, many reports are fixed or closed pretty quickly.

Three days backpacking in Emigrant Wilderness over the 4th of July.  As usual my photos are mostly of +Ada MacPup.

The pup handled the hiking and the fording easily?  I went backpacking there recently, and definitely wish I'd brought a pup.  Worried about pup safety, though.

These oatmeal pancakes are really tasty.  You just have to remember to start soaking your oats the night before.

I made them with vegan buttermilk (almond/coconut milk plus apple cinder vinegar) but I would probably skip the vinegar next time (or use lemon juice) as it gave them a funky smell.

Absolutely delicious and filling salads. The cheesecake was spectacular. Dining at the large communal table is a bit awkward but probably keeps people from lingering too long.

We were first in the door at 5:00 (got in line at 4:25) and still didn't have any food until 5:30. But it was completely worth the wait. The balance of flavors and textures was perfect.
