The Hyde families favorite organic salsa dip that I make for them; avocados, Red Bell Peppers, Olive Oil, Pepper, Tomatillo salsa & cheese.
Quite possibly the worlds best chip dip :)
- Mash one just ripe Avocado
- Dice one red bell pepper
- Add 1 Table spoon of olive oil
- Add 1/2 cup of Tamatillo Salsa or make your own
- Chili peppers
- jalapeno peppers
- chopped fresh oregano
- ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon Pepper
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese of your choice
Tastes great with the yellow organic corn chips from Target.
Quite large Green Darner Dragonfly with a brown abdomen just hanging out, outside of my office window today.
Here is a picture I took of it with a playing card for size. One of the largest dragonflies around, yet quite common in many places.
Life in Minnesota, in January.

How much money, bribes and fraud does it take to win an election these days anyways?
This article is a work in progress about the election process of 2012, candidates, media blackouts and behind the sciences action to becoming the next president of the united states of America.
It started out like any other year perhaps a bit early with a full house in the GOP looking for the GOP party nomination.
The first vote at the IA Caucus is when things became clearly different from past elections. Vote count discrepancies, voter adjustments and more.
Only four candidates remain, things get a bit hairy with attack ads and name calling. Are these candidates for president or a kindergarten class?... wait, sorry for the insult kids, you kindergarteners act much better than most of these candidates.
Only two candidates remain, yet the media and GOP appear to be blind to their 12 term congress man from Texas.
Little news of the process and delegate count at this point from the larger media sources, other than the occasional romney preemptively declared primary winner.

We all know that you cannot produce more energy than you consume. Energy cannot be created nor removed it can only change form. However you can use a process which takes more energy from external sources than what it takes to create it.
You cannot have perpetual energy without harnessing an existing energy and changing it's form where as that form will naturally change back to the initial form. and you must also use less energy to change its form than what is produced by the change.
The closest example os such a process is by use of HHO, Splitting H2O into HHO then burning it to create the energy. When HHO is burned it produces H2O however it takes more energy to split H2O into HHO then what is created while burning it. If you could find a way to improve the process of splitting H2O into HHO then you would have a free energy process. However, this cannot be done because energy cannot be created or removed it can only change form so you are left with one option, harness energy from an existing source.
Luckily we have several sources of existing energy. The largest is the sun, which puts off energy in many forms which can be harnessed. Waves, Wind and Solar.. in order of availability. Some will say that solar or wind will have more energy however, the fact is that 70% of our planet is water and therefore it absorbs 70% of the energy from the sun to our planet surface (excluding atmosphere of course).
The following is a process in which you can use to create energy from waves:
5% of the world’s waves can power the entire planet with the use of a simple buoy tethered to the bottom of a water mass. Each wave will exert vertical force on the buoy and tether. If the force on the tether is harnessed in to form of a piston, crank or geared motor you can transfer the force of the energy from the wave into usable electricity.
A simple diagram shows the basic method for this.
