Who Killed The Electric Car?

We went and saw 'Who Killed the Electric Car' a few weeks ago. At first I was worried that this movie would end up just complaining about something that can't be fixed! I was pleasantly surprised when this movie had some answers too. Pictured is the EV1[ electric vehicle 1] created by GM, and removed from the market in 2005, and crushed even with protests and demonstrations by the people who leased the cars, loved their cars, and offered to buy these cars. How these cars ran on electricity plugged in at the 'owners' home, caused zero emissions, were quiet and powerful--keeping up with and even surpassing gas engines! But, not only this info was given, I came away from this movie hopeful. The Hybrid car was introduced [ a car that combines internal-combustion gas engines with an elecrtic motor and a high-capacity battery] Click here for info on hybrid cars http:www.sonyclassics.com/whokilledtheelectriccar/electric.html

A Fishy Story

The last three days Steve and have been smoking up salmon!! Today we tasted them. WOW!! This is good eating! Our friend Barry and Jim went to the Nisqually Indian Fish Hatchery on Wednesday,having heard of a fish give-away! After canning 50 pints and having more fish than they could eat, Steve offered to smoke up some of the remaining fish. Barry and Jim agreed. Steve soaked the prepared fish in a 'wet brine.' [ 2 gallons water,2 cups salt,4 cups sugar] for 12 hours. After cleaning our homemade smoker, placing the fish on the racks and keeping the fire going for many hours, we discovered that we had to adjust this arrangement-the fire seemed too cool, and smoke unreliable. Finding an old barbecue grill with a lid, we set it up over a camp fire and kept the fire going day and night, turning the fish every few hours. This worked much better! It was worth the time and energy. We both loved the fish and will take Barry and Jim their portion tomorrow.
