City Farmer: Adventures in Urban Food Growing by Lorraine Johnson
Lorraine Johnson has written an engaging, funny book about growing food in the city. My favourite chapter was about urban chickens; while I am personally not planning to start a city chicken farm any time soon, her advice is simple and easy to follow. And her description of all the things her three hens did made me smile.

This CD is another testament to Dr. Sawa's musical talent and skill. Beautiful melodies skillfully played, accessable even to someone unfamiliar with Middle Eastern music. His enterpretation of Lama Bada is breathtaking.

From factories in China to sorting room at the Salvation Army the author examines the journey of the big portion of clothing bought today in North America.
