The North Pole, canada.com:  This is scary.

The north pole, that great bastion of eternal cold and barren ice, is a lake.

It’s a shallow lake. It’s a cold lake. But it is, actually, a lake.

According to the North Pole Environmental Observatory, the summer ice is melting away at unprecedented rates. The sea of snow is now meltwater.

Clay Macaulay, John Muir, quotes:  Loved this quote from Davidson friend Clay …

As Pam and I return to the home we love, after the most meaningful of journeys…the wisdom of John Muir speaks to me. He said:

“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in, and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.”

John Muir (1838-1914).

Abraham Lincoln, condolences, times of grief, Grief Relief:  Man has a way with words.

Lincoln felt the full depths of grief. He wrote, “I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better I can not tell; I awfully forebode I shall not. To remain as I am is impossible; I must die or be better, it appears to me.” (He wrote this in his grief at the end of his relationship with Mary, whom he later married.)

Homemade Energy Bars

So Lim created homemade whole-food bars instead. He’s published his favorite recipes—including these cashew-and-bacon rice cakes—in his new book The Feed Zone Cookbook: Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes. Lim says the savory combination of bacon, cashews, and nut butter is a counterbalance to all the sugary options on the market, and the extra protein is optimal for long training sessions. “If you’re looking for convenience, this isn’t it,” Lim says. “It’s about a better way to fuel.”
