    I was having a major sad that this diary wasn't getting the attention it deserved. One of the very best on the subject so far. I'd rec it X1000 if I could...

    •  And thank you for sending reccs my way (7+ / 0-)

      Your effort on this isn't too shabby either.

        Mine was more for amusement value, which I should have known would make it staggeringly popular (relatively speaking).

        Having said that, I've had to watch, over and over, diaries like mine (sarcastic, kind of amusing, but light on substance) shoot up onto the rec list while diaries like yours (chock full of substance, good ideas, great writing) fall into obscurity.

        And then this morning, I realized I was a participant in one of my own pet peeves about DK. So yeah, I shamelessly tried to pimp your diary as much as possible. I liked it that much, and I thought it was that important to get it seen. Thankfully, it looks like it was going to be seen under it's own power, whatever I did, but I'm glad I could send a couple of extra people over.

        Peace and stuff.

          Every so often I'll hit a home run that gets on the recc list; other times I'll barely make a ripple - and I see it with other diaries as well. Part of it is timing, part of it competition for eyeballs. And part of it seems to be chance.

          A few days ago I ran across reports that suggest Climate Change is already starting to affect the world coffee harvest, because the variety that is grown for most beans is very fussy about its growing conditions.

          On one level that seems trivial and almost funny - I can't have a morning cup because Global Warming ate my coffee!

          But at another level it's deadly serious. All of agriculture around the globe is under increasing stress - coffee is like the canary in a coal mine, keeling over to give warning that something is wrong. I tried to use it to emphasize the bigger problem. I got some reaction, but not as much as I would have liked.
