  •  I dont even know the sides on this one (6+ / 0-)

    Honestly I've been scaling back my political blog intake and I've unplugged my poutrage machine....which is all the more reason I haven't been around here much lately because I knew this lil slice o' FalmePie was going to make the knives-out Chained-CPI betrayal-a-thon look like my wife deciding between "Scotland Road" and "Amazon Moss" for what color we paint the study.  (Spoiler Alert: They are both just pretentious words for barely discernible shades of GREEN.  Just GREEN. Why cant they just call it GREEN?!? .....whatever... I think we went with "Scotland Road")

    I have found some awesome blogs to read about alternate energy, ocean cleanup initiatives, a cool reintroduction program for the Mexican Grey Wolf in the SW, tips on building my first Radio Controlled Quadcopter (ie, My personal Drone), and my greatest passion of all:  Cooking.    

    But I thought I'd check back in to catch up on some political news and see where things stand.... doesn't look like the all the OHNOEZ are quite finished though, so I guess I can either read around the edges and look for some sidelined threads about below-the-fold political stories or wade right in and be prepared to be called all kinds of shit for not being angry and betrayed about NSA surveillance and fascism and lies and cover-ups and Hitler.

    But seriously... if you have a spare minute to step out of the ProgRage Mosh Pit....here's a cool story about how Brazil's effective policies to stop Amazon deforestation have reduced their CO2 output to levels not seen since the 1980's:

    •  We went with 'Botanica' (aka green) (0+ / 0-)

      for the kitchen.  she didn't want anything too yellow, I didn't want anything too blue, so we wound up basically smack dab in the middle.

      •  I always liked the Pantone Matching System (PMS) (3+ / 0-)

        It's unambiguous, and doesn't get lost in fanciful but less-than-descriptive names. CAUTION who you say "PMS" to, though...for certain spouses and SOs of the female persuasion.

        Pick the green.  No, not that one, the other one!

        •  mr.u was a pre-press guy (0+ / 0-)

          If I had a nickle for everytime I heard PMS in reference to colors....
