Back from the Big Peach

Back from Ole Southey, The Sweaty Apple, Ted Turners Bidet. Yep, talking about Atlanta Ga. and thanks to the interweb I can annoy millions with my travel log.If you like you can check out my pix, I took over 1400, but didn't put all of them online, sorry about the low quality and the image tag, I get tired of finding my pix on other's pages.So my wife and I stayed in an inexpensive best western in midtown, alright hotel, great location, thin walls.We visited the Ga Aquarium, we were underwhelmed, perhaps spoiled by multiple trips to the Shedd Aquarium we were disappointed in that it took only three hours to tour the whole facility, TWICE. The whale sharks are cool, but the cafe is to be avoided, the "burgers" I ordered still had ice in the middle.The Atlanta Botanical Garden is an absolute jewel, I've visited dozens of gardens and this one tops the list, the highlight being the Fuqua Conservatory where you share the environs with poison arrow frogs, along with an outstanding orchid house.The High Museum, is hard to judge, we visited the special exhibits only, it was interesting to see a Rembrandt in person, and the Annie Leibowitz gallery was nice.The Fernbank Museum of Natural History, this one I sadly say, pass on. I LIKE dioramas and natural history museums, but without the Imax movie, it would have taken 45 minutes tops to see the whole thing.Finally the Zoo, a must visit, be sure to visit on a week day, Atlanta seems to be populated entirely with soccer moms witha sense of entitlement and double wide strollers. The zoo has pandas, but the red pandas have greater charm and charisma to them, and you don't need a special ticket.FoodThe only restaurant we dined at worth noting was the South City Kitchen, the food was so good you'll mourn that you will never eat that good again, the She Crab Soup and Catfish Ruben are delicious.And Weissenheimer hambergerler, PM me, Okay ?

Natural alternatives for insecticides?

I know its a bit early but the early bird gets the worm!!! In my area pesticides are banned for use on personal gardens and lawns for about 2 years now. Last year my poor peach tree really didn’t have any edible and or usable peaches on my tree because of infestations of bugs. I was wandering if any of you knowledgeable people could direct me on what kind of natural insecticides I could use in the future for my peach tree?so I can at least have some edible peaches for eats and jam. The squirrels usually take their share too. *darn little buggers!!!* Thanks. :)

Peach-Pit Flooring - Go Green while staying healthy!

Ever wonder what happens to those peach pits you throw out? No, I bet you don't, so here is an interesting new design utilizing the pits from peaches to create some neat flooring.http://www.luxist.com/2008/03/22/eco-friendly-flooring-made-of-peach-pits/Think "eco-friendly home design" and a lot of different options come to mind, but I'm willing to bet fruit pits as flooring isn't one of them.Alla le Roux feels differently however, and after being inspired by personal experience has started a business ( Stone Fruit Floors ) that designs and sells handmade flooring created out of peach pits. The pits are sanded down (to get rid of sharp edges and make them more comfortable to walk on) and set into the floor by hand along with glue, sand, and a resin mixture. The end result looks like a strange mix between hardwood, tile, and linoleum.Interesting... I'm not really sure what else to say about this!Check out the whole process here.Here is another gallery of the floorsSomeone has got to learn how to make these...will it be you? We can do it! Plus, you get the benefits of eating peaches!

Picture of Ingredients. How important is it to you?

Do you count on seeing a picture of the ingredients or do you rely on the actual "List of ingredients" in a recipe? I frequently make recipes up as I go along, taking fastidious notes of what was added along the way and taking a lot of pictures. Because of this proclivity, I've found taking a picture of the ingredients (before the recipe is completed) is a total waste of time.  That wouldn't be so bad, except that I often run out of an ingredient used in the recipe and have nothing to take a picture of.  For example: I'm making an peach pie and the voice in my recipe box shouts "Baja! Remember the fresh strawberries you have in the frig? I bet they would taste great with those peaches!" So, of course I listen to my exuberant recipe-box-voice and add the strawberries... but now I'm out of fresh strawberries... and the closest grocery store where I might be able to find them is 2 hours away.  UGH.  All opinions appreciated... unless you want to criticize my loquacious recipe box.  It happens to be very close friends with my tool box, who is fiercely protective and carries a blunt, heavy weapon object at all times.  It could get ugly, so please don't say I didn't warn you. ;-)

Summer: the time of fresh fruit

Summer is almost here in the Northern Hemisphere, and school is out (at least where I live).  All the beautiful trees will soon be producing wonderfully sweet fruits for human and non-human passers-by to gorge themselves on.  With Pears, Apples, Plums, Peaches, Cherries and more, immeasurable numbers of fruit tree species are out there.  What are all of your favorite fruits, and what do you do with them?  Do you eat them raw and whole, in a pastry, jellied, dried, or some other way? Personally, I think Plums fresh from the tree take the cake, but all fruits are delicious.

Hey everybody, I really hope someone can help me. I'm PJ, a social work student that's organizing a sort of DIY electronics meeting in Belgium. By school policy, i have to write something in between an essay and a thesis and i'm doing it about DIY as a scene within subcultures. Now because DIY as a scene or culture is so enormous i'm writing it about DIY in electronics/hardware fiddling/hacking/modding/bending. Now what i'm trying to ask: Do you know any essays, thesisses, papers, books about DIY as a culture, scene, phenonemon?,... Not just a link to Wikipedia I need a base, where i can start from in writing this essay so i can explore DIY some more. Thanks a lot. PJ

Help Identifying Mario Title? Answered

Hey all- here is a question that has just come up. While playing some mario videogames, in a conversation I remembered an old mario title I used to play. I only played it a couple times though, so I dont remember a whole lot. I dont remember the title at all- just a few details. I remember it was 3D, and I *think* it was played on a Nintendo 64. It had a castle on the main entry. It had paintings (which were locked), and I remember something about penguins. I remember a level up in the sky, and of course, rescuing Princess Peach was the main objective. I think it is Super Mario 64, but am not sure. If anyone knows the title or if it is available for a Wii, please let me know.

Zombies, and what are your plans and ideas for killing them?

Plans? Ideas? Instructables? Bullets, ammo, makeshift guns, what are your plans? Hygiene, Food, escape routes? Can you suggest guns (THAT YOU HAVE USED!!!)? Here are my plans... Im saving money for a Walther P22, possibly buy a silencer, (They are illegal to use in my state, I belive not to own one.) I will be stock piling ammo for a 20 gauge scattergun, .357 rounds, .38 special rounds, .22 rifle rounds, plan on buying a cheap .223 rifle for picking them off. Also buying sights and scopes for a 20 gauge shotgun, a .22 long rifle, and a .357 magnum. Whenever my brother or parents drive me around places, I look for friends houses, some who have guns, Ideas to signal that im human, geographically and easily defendable homes and areas. I look for random scrap wood and metal, and I try to find out who will be able to take the stress. I try to meet people in my area. Still in the process of stock piling water, and getting those canned peaches I love so much. Im saving wood pieces, trying to find heavy sheet metal, just as gadget-evilusions said. I have actually begun to devise gadgets, weapons, landmines, makeshift munitions, ammunition, and other anti-zombie things. Plans on quick-welding lawnmowers to the front of a car, 2x4 plus nai equals effective weapons, chemical warfare angainst the Brooks zombie, and others. One of my main projects is printing and laminating topographical maps from google maps and applying section numbers to them. I have told my friends when the day comes, Ill be knocking on your door to save your butt. Im planning escaoe routes, and am in the process of building a two person raft. Pyrotechnics for signaling and otherwise are in effect. Everyone, get ready for Z-Day, and please, tip the chef! (Beacause, you know, chefs have big knives...) ~RoAr

The golden age between the first terror attack and the last.

Two nights ago at the MOMA I got the chance to catch Weimar NY (A Golden Gate Affair). I had my reservations at first, but my girlfriend kept insisting it would be absolutely marvelous darling and, in fact, it was. For those of you like myself who probably had never heard of this before, Weimar NY is a cabaret, burlesque, gender-bending, performance art, radical left-wing, extravaganza celebrating "the golden age between the first terror attack and the last."Having been part of post-9/11 New York I can honestly say that this is something that could have only developed as a response to that time-period. It's a document, celebration of and response to a certain amount of uncertainty, fear, depression and general hopelessness that descended upon New York after the fall of the towers and to that effect is still somewhat relevant today even if and especially because the face of the city changed after that morning. Something became different when all of a sudden the rest of America became New Yorkers.I think Penny Arcade (an infamous and outspoken ex-Warhol Superstar) summarized it best when she pointed out the difference between New York City and San Francisco. As she saw it, both places were filled with annoying disgusting tourists, but in San Francisco they leave. I think what she means by that is after 9/11, when all of a sudden everyone thought they were a New Yorker, there was a sudden influx of new migrants to New York different from all previous migrations. Again, as she also states, it used to be that people went to New York to reinvent themselves and now they were coming to reinvent New York and turn it into a suburb no different from any other. And it's out of this feeling that Weimar NY grew. It grew out of the alienation of the freaks, geeks, criminals, anarchists, drag queens and general delinquents that used to flood to Manhattan to be at home that were being pushed out by the influx of chain stores, Chase Banks, Gucci wielding bleach-blonds, meatheaded corporate-types and every other boring sort of mediocrity that usually just stayed home in its suburb. Personally this hits home because I grew up north of the city in the suburbs and the first chance I got to escape the suburbs I fled to New York City to be amongst the socially delinquent part of society. I was fortunate enough to get there just before anyone outside of the city knew who, what or where Brooklyn was, when the Moldy Peaches were still playing house parties and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs hadn't accidentally formed one evening in some bar on the LES (and for that matter no one referred to the Lower East Side as "LES" and you could still get stabbed there for pocket change). This was back when the city was dangerous and full of possibility. After the towers fell things changed. At first it was quiet and sad. But New Yorkers aren't the type to sit home and feel sorry for themselves. Shortly after the city burst with life and this sudden vibrant outburst of life, creativity and happiness drew incredible people from all over the world who once again shifted everyone's attention to New York. And these incredible people... incredible happenings... incredible everything! for that matter, then started gaining lots of people's attention and drawing people increasingly not-so-incredible. Once this started happening, almost overnight, it got to the point where Penny Arcade could refer to Manhattan as "suburbanized."Personally, it was the night I discovered that the Second Ave. Deli (an infamous New York institution) had been shut down and was going to be replaced with a Chase Bank that I resolved I had enough and needed to leave New York. It was almost officially no longer home or a refuge for the marginalized, unwanted and magnificent. This left an even bigger question, "where does one go from here?" I still have not resolved this issue (but am happily in San Francisco for the time being). And I don't think anyone has. I forget where I heard, but someone said recently that every period of time has its city. For instance, at the end of the 19th century it was Paris and the end of the 20th it was New York. The keyword there is "was." I personally think Weimar NY has picked up on this feeling and have encapsulated the "golden age between the first terror attack and the last" and will continue to carry on the torch of the grand society of wonderful weirdos and infamous outcasts so long as someone else is willing to listen.Any which way, I doubt if they will perform outside of New York City ever again, but should you happen to in the NYC, I recommend checking it out.(end rant)
