This is why biodiesel won’t solve the energy crisis.



Olive Oil Review List – Trader Joe’s – Top 10ish


Can’t call it a top 10 list like our wine review list, because it’s easier to drink a bottle of wine than a bottle of olive oil.

TJ Indian Fare – Index – Food Review


Trader Joe’s Indian Fare are quick and easy dishes suitable for a lunch, especially at the office.  The main problem with most of these is, they are more like a sauce than a meal.  TJ recommends they be eaten with rice, naan (Indian bread), pita bread or tortillas.  That makes them a better meal, but also makes it more difficult to use as a quick office lunch.  The main advantage to most of these is, they can be stored in a pocket-book size box at room temperature until opened, heated and eaten.  Preparation involves no more than tearing open a heavy-duty plastic and foil pouch, emptying the contents into a bowl and microwaving for a minute or two.  All of these taste good.  Most have a medium heat.  All will allow a little more variation into what we eat as everyday food without adding a lot of complication or expense.  All are priced at either $1.99 or $2.19.

Listed below are the links to the full review for each product and pictures.  The list is ranked best at the top and less best as the list goes down.  If you need a place to start, start at the top and work your way down.

Trader Joe just can’t be happy having one very good olive oil, he has to confuse us with a second one.


WordPress – .com vs. .org – speed and freedom


Speed And Freedom

.com is sort of slow to edit                    .org is better

Speed counts. Normally we’d think of this as how fast your blog posts are served up to your readers. That hasn’t been a problem so far with either  the .com or .org version. What you’ll notice more is how slow it is to edit your posts directly on .com using the built-in editor.


WordPress – .com vs. .org – custom header


Custom Header

.com makes it easy                      .org is more difficult

Almost no WordPress blog stays with the basic blue and white text header for very long.  (more…)

WordPress – .com vs. .org – proofreading



.com has this feature .org does not have this feature

In the user profile section the .com version has a whole slew of options for something called proofreading. The .org version has none of these.
