From Salon, Lessons from the "organic rednecks": "At an Oregon farm, I learned that eating local isn't about politics or budget, it's about making food better."

I'm bad about doing stuff with my hair. I have pretty nice hair (I can say that, I didn't do anything to get it - thanks 'rents!) but I generally just let it hang there. I say it's because I like the "messy," "natural" look, which is true...but also I'm lazy. Anyways, these photos of braids made me think I should try to get creative, especially with summer coming (when long, thick hair gets a little unruly).

I've been curious about trying compression sleeves and socks, even though I'm still sort of unclear about their benefits. SR's review of compression tights has be more interested.
