Our Favorite Book
The Amazing Kindle 2
The Kindle 'disappears' as you read it, once you have the Kindle in your hands, you forget everything and become immersed in what you're reading. The Kindle is balanced, portable, and entirely usable in any situation. I now read newspapers, when previously I found the paper versions too cumbersome.
Overall, the Kindle is an amazing product. It did the basics well in the original model and the Kindle 2 has improved on a lot of dimensions. Buy one now!
Get Lower Energy Bills
Energy Saving Lightbulbs
There are many CFL or Low Energy Bulbs available, I prefer these bulbs from Sylvania the most. They provide a warm and pleasant light, more like a traditional incandescent color.
Since using these I feel good about saving a lot of money and using less electricity. They fit readily into standard lamp sockets and turn on quickly.
A Whole Economy Run on Green Energy Base Power?
AUSTRALIA could switch completely to renewable energy within a decade by building a dozen vast, new solar power stations and about 6500 wind turbines, according to a major new study. The Zero Carbon Australia Stationary Energy Plan - a collaboration between Melbourne University's Energy Research Institute, the environment group Beyond Zero Emissions and engineers Sinclair Knight Merz, puts the cost at $37 billion in private funding and public investment every year for the next decade. readfile('http://www.rss-info.com/rss2.php?integration=php&windowopen=0&rss=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2Fservices%2Fxml%2Frss%2Fnyt%2FEnvironment.xml&number=5&width=500&ifbgcol=FFFFFF&bordercol=99FF00&textbgcol=FFFFFF&rssbgcol=FFFFFF&showrsstitle=1&showtext=1'); ?>
