Just watched Fuel (which is on Instant Download in
Netflix). Overall, I though it was a compelling treatment of the problems and possibilities surrounding transportation fuel in the U.S. and as they relate to the rest of the world. I liked that it covered the unintended consequences of diverting food crops into the fuel supply. The film finished strongly with an upbeat, yet not sappy, exhortation to get out there and do those things that are within your power.

Masonry Lesson

I was glad to get a chance to learn a little bit of masonry skills in the course of the job to clean up our brick work...
