I really think LA has to do more of this!

Those of you who are in the Southwest should look into Stardust Building Supply. It's a nonprofit that has 3 thrift stores in the Metro Phoenix area. The organization's goal is pretty great, too- make home renovation affordable and keep building supplies out of our landfills.

I try really hard to unplug on a daily basis. Although it's not always easy, I find that meditating for at least ten minutes helps to clear my chattery mind!

While, it's something I still find difficult, what with my type-A personality, I find a quick drive out to the beach or the Everglades a good way to unplug and focus on the sounds of life all around that doesn't need batteries. When I have a weekend, I'll head down to Key West and soak in the unhurried atmosphere. I also travel a lot, so having favorite music, headphones, and my sketchbook on hand can help me unwind even in the busiest airports. I love that sheer blue skirt/dress in the 7th and 9ths photos (worn with the black jacket) what is that piece?

This is such a smart and innovative invention. Not sure how people can group this in with chicken hormones or meat flour. Nonetheless, kudos Stuart and Cedar!

@ALL-FOR-IT If you read carefully their website, they still promote smoking the beehive (for cleaning and such) they actually call it "beehive smoking a work of love". I don't believe this is a creation made to spare bees from stress, actually the opposite. And that smoking although NOT ideal at all happens at the pace of Nature, this gadget allows bee keepers to "play" with bee's work: honey. Just because you don't open the beehive it doesn't make it un-intrusive at all. It seems more intrusive to me. Also this for me sounds like if you plastify a chicken's womb so that she lays an already clean egg. Bee's wax comb are an organic creation, their womb. Even just in name of health I wouldn't like to eat this honey (it actually now scares me that I can now buy honey produced this way without knowing!). Among beekepers one of the most cruel thing you can do to a beehive it's to deprive them from food, you should take part of the honey but leave some for them to feed themselves through winter (this is why they make honey in the first place). This invention makes the opposite. Imagine you are stocking up for winter and you keep finding your pantry empty everyday, or imagine you stocked up everything thing stays the same for a long time and one day there are a part that's gone but you know you still have more than plenty to eat. Also, human have proved that they don't know everything about Nature and its intricated complex process. People now know that bees are responsible for the entire world biological system. But what happens to polen and wax from the honeycomb that create in regular beehives in this invention? Can't you see that you're telling bees to work in a way against they nature? How does this affects polinization? Etc, etc. If this is such a good invention they should at least test it out for 20 years, before mass-produce it. (Sorry for the long text!)
