This week's compendium

Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…

1. my Canadian cyberfriend Chrows25 [1a] sent me a link to a site showing the size of the Gulf oil spill [1b]. Scary. Very scary.

2. with superb timing, the Rocky Mountain Institute launched Reinventing Fire – its plan for a secure and climate-safe energy system [2a]. Watch the video here [2b].

3. further to item 3 in last week’s compendium, Yahoo stopped using its iPhone weather app to make a political statement [3]. Good on you for sticking to your knitting, Yahoo.

4. planetgreen wrote of a Wafu – a Sydney Japanese restaurant offering a 30% discount to customers who eat all the food they order [4a]. Wafu has other interesting policies too [4b].

5. in central Australia a 17 km bike path was opened; and it’s made entirely of discarded printer cartridges [5]. How wonderful.

6. Grammar Girl explained the whys and wherefores of ellipses [6]. Well…okay then.

7. Jono remembered the Anzacs [7]. No comment can do it justice.

8. Daylesford Organics closed its farmgate shop until the Spring [8]. What a spectacular opening season it was, guys.

Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.
