Servers That Soak Up the Sun

As we mentioned earlier this summer,’s hosting has just gotten a little greener. The site is now being hosted by AISO.Net. AISO is “the first and only 100% completely solar powered hosting company that does not use energy credits.” The solar panels (which you can see on their site via a Live PV Cam) power not only the AISO offices but the data center and servers as well.

So, if you own your own site (or already do and are looking to switch) consider soaking up some sun with AISO.Net.

Local Eggs Florentine

Eggs Florentine

You don’t have to travel to Italy to enjoy local Eggs Florentine. As Farmers Markets open across the Midwest, and other parts of the country, eating locally has just got easier. The following dish (made from a simple recipe that I found in Domino Magazine) is a great one to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I started with a crusty whole wheat locally-baked bread. (The bakery uses ingredients in nearby states — not many of the ingredients found in bread are available in Indiana.) Next, I spread on some Fromage Blanc from Traders Point Creamery (although recipe calls for Ricotta and Parmesan cheese). Atop that, I laid some lightly sauteed spinach from my parents garden and a fried egg (fresh from Phelps Family Farms stand at the Carmel Farmers Market).

The result was a hearty, rich and healthy dish. Bellissimo!
