- The Guardian blog asks if you’re vegetarian and have given up meat then why do you eat so many meat-substitutes_? The post is beautifully titled Hard-core Quornquorn.html.
- Those of you following the 31 Days to Better Energy may be interested in Mental Health Notes post on doing some mental housecleaning.
