Green Efforts: Green Planet Water

Using plastic water bottles is an egregious waste of resources. The U.S. alone consumes 1,500 plastic water bottles every second, adding up to an astronomical 129,600,000 water bottles a day!

Widmer Brothers: Not Just Hefe

You are, no doubt, familiar with Widmer’s Hefeweizen, that extremely cloudy, exceptionally fresh, brew which when served ice cold with a lemon slice on a hot summer day, might be about one of the best thirst quenchers around, but these folks are far more than that, and the breadth of their selections is impressive.

Moss Henry

A few years ago I participated in a local concert called “Golden Protest”, an evening of local singer/songwriters performing songs in opposition to the war in Iraq. One of the performers was Moss Henry. He plays the acoustic guitar and has a voice reminiscent of Bruce Cockburn. What really stuck with me was the songs; […]

Aye, now there’s a rub!

Right up there on the list of Barbecue essentials, (alongside that refrigerator door full of Marinades), are rubs. A rub is a combination of spices, seasonings and herbs that add flavor and texture to meats. Spice rubs are most often used when grilling or smoking Meat, Poultry, or Fish.
