Rachael says, “Yup, here’s another recipe for chicken fingers. This one is a riff on everything bagels (my favorite). The chicken fingers are coated in everything crust (seeds, garlic and onion) then baked, not fried. Then they get dipped in a vegetable cream cheese sauce. High protein, low-carb fun!”

Moore’s Law ain’t done yet?  Shrinking transistors even further… probably sometime after the beginning of the next decade, to shrink the contact point between the two materials to just 40 atoms in width, the researchers said.  By simply swapping carbon nanotube transistors for conventional ones in a simulated IBM microprocessor, they were able to increase speeds by as much as seven orders of magnitude or, alternatively, achieve almost as significant power savings.
 
The finding may be the key to once again increasing the speed of computer processors, which has been stalled for the last decade.

I just set this one up in the crockpot.  I followed the package instructions to prep the lentils, tossed the coconut milk and tomato stuff with the dried spices in the crockpot while they were simmering and sautéed the shallots, ginger, and garlic per the recipe.  Added in julienned carrots and thin sliced mushrooms.  It already taste-tested "YUM" from my official tester.  It will be tonight's dinner for the horde.
My one pot saucy coconut lentils are packed with savory flavors and sweet, creamy coconut milk. Serve it with rice, naan or nothing at all.

Some things no one tells you...
1) Tractor clutches are nothing like car clutches. 2) Never let the tractor run out of diesel. 3) Paper wasps build anywhere, especially in tractors. 4) Snapper turtles grow as big as manhole covers in Philly. 5) Red tailed hawks will buzz over you screamin...

Automatically controlling a train’s speed, at least some of the time, doesn’t require billions of dollars of infrastructure upgrades.

Good.  Now figure out the recycle or biodegradable thing and it's a total win.
 
In light of Keurig's recent DRM reversal, we decided to revisit all of our single-serve coffee coverage to see which models have reusable My K-Cup-style coffee filters.

I'm going to make this next week.  This week was all classic chicken soups.  Ugh, flu.
This Vietnamese Chicken noodle soup combines a perfectly fragrant and light broth with rice noodles, chilies and fresh cilantro for the ultimate slurping

Head first
One thing that happens, when you fall in love, is that nothing seems to big or too hard. Here is 8 acres, 1975 Ford compact tractor that no one has parts for and a silt-filled pond with a crumbling dam. Here is a dead woman's dream, her two girls and her gr...

Did you know it takes less than a nanogram (or less than one billionth of the mass of a penny) of your dried saliva for scientists to construct a digital portrait that bears an uncanny resemblance to your very own face?

I LOVE the sleep tracking!!!  Especially since I work 7P to7A and wanted to track my sleep deprivation.  It lets me know when and how long I'm out on the couch which means I don't feel as guilty about not actually laying down.
