This will create high heat and breaks down the natural organic materials over time into a dark, rich, fertile soil that gardeners fondly nickname Black Gold. By composting at home, we cannot only

Practical Ways to Reduce The Carbon Footprint

Your carbon footprint is a measurement of the number of carbon emissions produced by the activities in your daily life.

The healthy garden soil is absolutely essential to a successful garden. Without rich, healthy soil, your careful efforts at sewing, planting, tending your garden will be in vain.

So water is the most essential to our survival, next to air. In fact, a person can survive for 8 weeks without food but without water, he or she will not be able to survive for more than 5 days. Water is not only essential to the human body, it also plays a vital role in our daily lives. We use water to do countless things such

It even seems strange that many people have no problem leaving the faucet running but we would go to war if someone tried to steal our oil.

A primer on Vietnamese cuisine - The Boston Globe


BostonGlobe.com

In Massachusetts, the Vietnamese population is over 47,000, with the largest communities in Dorchester, Quincy, and Worcester (and the concentration of restaurants there as well). For these immigrants and their children, food is the connection to their culture. For non-Vietnamese, the food is an exciting array of Asian dishes not quite like any of its neighbors. It’s time for a primer. “The first thing you’ve got to learn about Vietnamese cuisine is the fish sauce,” says Vietnam-born, award-winning author Andrew Pham, who recently taught a writing class at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill. Fish sauce, called nuoc mam, is an indispensable ingredient of the Vietnamese pantry. Mixed with lime, sugar, and water, it becomes nuoc cham, a popular dipping sauce on all tables.
