Mom & Shellfish Memories / Macaroni Shrimp Salad

People who live in tropical climates with a coconut-based diet have fewer incidences of heart disease, cancer, digestive complaints and prostate problems.

Evidence of Bears in Dennis

By Jonathan Mayo

As one who frequently walks the woods of Cape Cod I have come to some disagreement with friends about whether or not bears trudge just below our radar on old Cape Cod. Now we all know about the "Cape Cod Bear" but do others still remain?  One friend says "no way" to which I respond, "They don't make it a point to be seen." I found some very large pawprints in the woods last winter but that was the only clue I could find-until now.

When will we learn?

Fossil fuels are not forever

Germany learned. Why can't we?

Only the Alliance Could Complain About This One

During construction, Cape Wind will need a staging facility at a New England port where it will assemble turbines and monopoles for transport to the wind farm site. Whatever port hosts that facility will benefit from significant additional economic activity. This will be especially true if, in the long term, Cape Wind spurs the development of a larger offshore wind industry in the Northeast (note to Cape Wind opponents: I said “if”).
