  1. Good morning,

    Just finished my first cup of coffee so the caffeine hasn't quite kicked in yet. It's a new coffee for me. Mr. Dietrich (of Dietrich's Coffee fame) has a new chain of stores here in Southern CA called Kéan Coffee. He fresh roasts his beans so I picked up a bag of Ethiopia SIdamo. I like Starbuck's version of this (about the only thing I will buy from them) but these were roasted much lighter. Anyway, good coffee. I like it.

    That's my coffee recommendation for today. That's all I've got for you at the moment. Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies out there.

    Happy Friday!

  2. That won't make Iowa happy, but it makes sense. I've never been a big fan of ethanol (why turn a food source into fuel?) other than it is cheap here in Iowa.

    Brazilians do ethanol right by using sawgrass.

  3. I think there is a slump in ethanol markets right now (overcapacity issues). One alternate for farmers would be to grow high-yield crops that require fewer inputs (fertilizer, pesticides, fuel for equipment & etc.) for the electric power plants. Electrical efficiency goes down the further you have to transmit it (FWIW – I think major cities should have their own nuke plants — Even the waste heat could be used). Midwestern-grown biomass could fuel midwestern generating stations.

  4. Brazil also uses a lot of sugar cane for their ethanol, which has lead to shortages of fuel in the past when sugar prices are high. 🙂

  5. Shameless plug time… I wrote a post about about a week ago about converting 'unused manufacturing' plants in Michigan to wind turbine construction. Living in Michigan, I hear this all the time on the radio and it drives me crazy. Our wonderful Governor is continuously push this notion that if you can build a car, you can build a windmill. It's not that simple.

    Anyhow, the post is not that long, or dry, even though looking back the title might make you think that it is:

    As far as the Star Trek movie, I think we will catch it next weekend to avoid the craziness, and it's going to be a busy weekend..
