2009 -- Time Passes

Wow I haven't posted in over two years. 

If anybody stops by from CR, hello. I'm not sure if/when I will start posting regularly again but I'm at least thinking about it.

Sorry that my blogroll is so out of date. A snapshot from three years ago, but I ought to change it.

** Safe Fish

A good article from the NYTimes on what fish you should be eating and how often.

Best and worst choices are summarized on this list. Print it out and keep a copy in your wallet if you eat fish as often as I do.
