Autumn Cleaning

I need to clean out all my ‘read it later’ links – seriously, it is the worst firefox extension ever, because I now have 14 pages of links, half read, half unread and all interesting.

So here is a round-up of some of them… hopefully after this firefox will run faster and so will my whole computer – maybe that is wishful thinking but it is all a part of me cleaning up my whole computer.

Teaching Kids to Argue
This page has good reasoning for teaching your children how to debate and reason. I really appreciated the wisdom because I think you should start giving kids responsibilities much earlier than we tend to in the West.

Radius around a Point
For anyone wishing to be a locavore to a certain distance, this tool is invaluable. You can enter any place – google maps style – and it will draw a circle around it to a radius of your choice, I was really surprised to find that a 100mile radius (as touted by many locavores) actually covers a lot of ground.

Sweet Music I have no idea where I found, as well as more sweet music.

Fair Trade shopping
I pick up many different links to fair trade shopping places, and then never spend my money there because I am trying to save for plane tickets – really environmental of me 😦

Potatoes as a staple
I’m not really sure why I saved this link, but there you go.

Windmill History
I prolly saved this so that I could keep up with my supersmart boyfriend, and yet I haven’t. 😦

Rainbow Wedding
The photos from this wedding a totally amazing!!

The Laws of Sustainability.
Always good to have these handy.

Letter to unbelievers
I thought this was really interesting, but didn’t know what to do with it.

Find the perfect gadget when you have a lot more money than I do.

If you really enjoy storing your food in plastic then don’t read this post.

A TED roundup explains how you can not get cancer by eating, or something.

Where to get reclaimed materials from (somewhat US centric).

My nalgene cap is about to die, I guess I have to do this when it does.

A curtain made out of old slides – superkawaii.

Who is responsible for feeding our kids properly?

Women who don’t have high expectations, don’t have high outcomes. Basically what we have always known about teachers and groups, if part of a group is expected to perform poorly/well, they will.

What will clothing be like in the future?

Have you ever thought about not calling the police?

Just in case you didn’t already know that coal wasn’t super-great, here is some of the history of it.

I would like to remember and plant this Australian pepper plant.

Walking = Coping.

Videos I want to watch:

Jon Stewart interviews non-violence advocates.

A child praying.

Cap and Trade from the Story of Stuff people.

A speaking Piano?

Growth vs Development

Watch, listen, same difference, I want to listen to this doco on copyright. This video I have already seen, but want to keep because it is awesome! Ditto this one on Remix Culture.

The second half (I would post the first half but I’m super tired and you are smart) of a woman’s hair journey.

I really want to show Scott the oak frame part of one of these videos. Not sure how to go about that really.

Pasta and Soup

Soup:

Nettle Soup
I don’t know if nettles grow here, but if they do I want to put them in a soup!

Random soup with avocado on top
I do need to expand my soup-making repertoire, and this would be a yummy addition.

Pumpkin Soup with Coriander Pesto
A bit of a twist on the old Pumpkin recipe.

Pasta:

Chicken and Artichoke Pasta
I love a nice simple pasta, and this seems to fit into that category.

Chorizo Pasta
I actually did cook this, but I replaced the wild garlic and welsh onion with regular garlic and onion, because that is what I had. Irregardless it turned out pretty good. I reckon if you stick to the recipe you would end up with something more posh than what I had though.
