Google Earth Alphabet (Britian)

The Google Earth alphabet, found in Britain's hedgerows, roads and buildings..

This alphabet of Britain has been collected by 25-year- old Rachel Young after selecting the images from a Google map of aerial photographs of the country.

Rachel came up with the idea as a way of passing the time during her convalescence after being badly injured in a car accident.

Incapacitated and laid up in her home in Ossett, West Yorkshire, she decided to hunt down perfect images representing all 26 letters of the alphabet.

'I thought it would be a nice way to celebrate our country,' she says. 'I did a lot of scrolling around on Google, flipping images around just waiting to find the right shapes,' she says. 'I tried to focus on areas where there would be good, strong shapes.

Although I could find about 100 Bs, I had real trouble finding K, N and particularly Q. After a long search, I found Q in one of the buildings at Gatwick Airport. It was a great way to while away a few hours, but the whole exercise has left me a bit cross-eyed.'

Where the alphabet letters appear in Britain:

    It's an A for effort: Leigh, Kent
    B road: Weston-on-the-Green, Oxon
    C for miles: Normanton on the Wolds, Notts
    Drive in the D end at White City, London
    E street development: Berwick-upon-Tweed
    F for field shapes in Sywell, Northants
    G whizz street at Kingston, West Sussex
    Is H the Monopoly winner? St Bees, Cumbria
    I for industry in Invergordon, Scotland
    Home to the Jays? A wood in Northants
    Special K road layout in Littleover, Derby
    L of a forest on North York Moors
    Dial M for meander: Cynwyd Clywyd
    Chalking up a N track: Huncote, Leics
    O isn't it busy! Roads at Longbridge, West Midlands
    Don't stop for a P! Outlane, West Yorks
    So often Qs at airports: Gatwick
    Ooo R country: Swithland, Leics
    S for spa: Houses in Harrogate, North Yorks
    Ploughed to a T: Fields at Pilsley, Derbys
    It could be U: River in Hilldale, Lancs
    V for la difference: Northumberland
    W, W, W: It's a long road to Ramsey, IoM
    X factor: Talent for forestry in East Lothian
    Y not stop at Old Stratford, Northants.
    They are pushing up Zs in sleepy Staffs.

Glow In The Dark Stones!

Pinned Image

http://www.reasonwhyimbroke.com/2012/11/glow-stones.html

Pathways in nature are great so that you can see where you need to go just by staying on the path. However, the path can disappear from you when the sun begins to set and darkness of the night begins to set. Make sure the path still visible with glow stones! Outline the boundaries with them or even scatter them all along the path for a more distinctive trail.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

as promised
For all my California Fans...and FB peeps!
Cauliflower Crust Pizza!!!
recipe in the first comment:)

Ingredients:
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp kosher salt
olive oil (optional)
pizza sauce, shredded cheese and your choice of toppings*

Directions:
Remove stems and leaves from 1 head of cauliflower, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to your food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (You can also use a cheese grater). Place the “riced” cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes (may need to adjust according to your microwave). No need to add water.
One large head will produce between 2 and 3 cups of riced and cooked cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.

To make the pizza crust:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray (or use non-stick aluminum foil on a cookie sheet, which is what I did). In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, beaten egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, minced garlic and salt, mix well. Transfer the mixture to your cookie sheet, and pat out into a 9″ round.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool awhile. This helps to make the crust more solid.
To make the pizza: add sauce, toppings and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes). *Toppings need to be precooked since you are only broiling for a few minutes.

Electric Tractor

Having an electric tractor doesn't have many of the complications that come with electric cars.  Tractors are built for power not speed, which perfectly fits electric motors' strong tendency to have far more torque and low end grunt over high end horsepower.  Also helpful is the fact that tractors seldom go far from where they are stored (and can therefore have constant accessibility to its own charger).  Lastly, it's quite important for cars to keep their weight as low as possible for proper performance, but tractors need to be heavy anyway so you can simply pile on as many batteries as you want or can!  The tractor pictured goes for about $30,000 retail and is approximately equivalent to a 60 horsepower gas tractor.

Flaxseed Oil

Flaxseed oil is well-known for its beneficial health properties such as anti-inflammatory properties, bowel health, heart health and skin health just to name a few.

But did you know that Flaxseed Oil can assist in killing malignant tissue and clear plaque from your arteries! A couple of reasons why it is included in the Gerson Therapy to help heal the body. Find out more in Charlotte Gerson's interview here: http://www.foodmatters.tv/m/day-4-charlotte-gerson

Recycled Denim Insulation

Recycled denim insulation is becoming increasingly popular for a few good reasons.  First, of course, it's nice to know that your old jeans can be put to good use when they've reached the end of their "lifetime".  This type of insulation is also highly effective at soundproofing compared to traditional (and most non-traditional) types of insulation, there are zero toxic chemicals or off-gassing involved, and it has a higher R-value than the itchy fiberglass that most of us grew up with.  This is what we chose to use when we had to expand our offices in order to shut out some noisy neighbors in the building and we're quite happy with it.  Contact @[500398200606:274:Bonded Logic Inc] for more info or questions with their innovative technology.

Reuseable Pot Labels

Pot Labels  Forget those plastic tags that look cheap sticking out of the dirt. These painted-on labels and a piece of chalk will help you keep track of what you’re growing and can be used again when you’ve harvested your crop and replanted the pots.

DIY: Mumkin



Click here to creat your own Mumkin:
http://circadee.com/2011/10/02/mumkin/

Pick a large pumpkin.  Carve the top wide enough to fit a 4 inch or 6 inch plant.  Clean out the inside of the pumpkin and let it dry.



Once it is dry, insert the plant leaving it in its nursery pot.  It is really important that you leave the pot around the soil.  I learned the hard way a few years ago that if you plant the soil in the pumpkin it will rot almost immediately.  It is just too much moisture for the pumpkin.  Also remove the plant from the pumpkin when watering.  Let all of the water drain before re-planting.  Try not to get any excess water in the pumpkin.
