if you only read one non-fiction book

“In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto” (Michael Pollan) Even better than the Botany of Desire or Omnivore’s Dilemma, this one really shakes out the food landscape and illustrates what a minefield the modern supermarket is. I buy very little processed food (breakfast cereals are about it) but I think I have some more things to watch out for.

I knew this

Submitted by: Jeremy Reid, Graphic Designer, Belleville, Ontario, Canada [From MOVING DAY: PREPARE TO BE TIRED ] I used to do this when we moved as a kid (I had a waterbed at the time and assembly took some time and moving it after assembly was impossible) and they said I was lazy…. Add also that a bed is the largest thing in a bedroom and its placement generally determines where everything else goes and this is not a bad idea.

This performance will be in Seattle on May 16 for the Seattle Art Museum’s Party in the Park, a fundraising event celebrating the museum’s 75th Anniversary…. It will not be possible to pay so all musicians must volunteer their time, but food and drink will be supplied at all rehearsals and the performance.
