These guys are eating only food produced within 100 miles of their house:
(thanks to cbc's "as it happens" tonight for the tip - another story from "the tyee" newspaper that cbc made me aware of: Getting_Rid_of_the_Box and accompanying gallery.)

the recent post on popscoff about rick moranis reminded me of this. that's gord's album cover for "something wrong" ( i took the cd out of the edmonton library a few years ago, it is aptly named). I really wish i could've found a larger image of it, it's a classic.

less really is more. there's proof. (i am going by memory on most of these facts.)
10 days or more of vacation time increases productivity and reduces stress for a signifigant amount of time after returning to work.
Germans (for example, and most europeans, are entitled to 5 weeks of vacation per year. the french have a 4 day work week. neanderthals have a shorter work week - and we have all these supposed labour and time saving devices.
luckily, canadians don't have it as bad as the americans (who work slightly more than we do) or the koreans or japanese (who work an insane amount).
i begged to have my hours reduced at my job (and to work seasonally), it was the one of the best decisions i ever made.

I just got this email from my friend in Iceland:

hi, this is one of the most unbelivable things I have seen - it´s a belgian tv show of the Oprah kind about people with severe speech disorders it was a live broadcast show but the talkshow host quit tv after the show and is now a dj at a radio station I wonder why. it does not matter that you don´t understand the language it reaches across language barrier.
