TWW Daily Feed for February 3, 2010

After a whopping three hours at the office yesterday I took a trip over to Red Rocks Canyon and got in a run before heading back to work. A mid-work run is one of my favorite ways to break up the day. It gets me energized for the afternoon and lets me think about what I need to get done. It also gets me out of the office for an extended period of time. And there are way more attractive girls in Red Rocks than there are in the building. The Feed:

Oatmeal on a cold winter day is one of life’s little treats. It’s even better when you add blueberries on top of it. Check out this simple and delicious sounding recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal. Thank me later.

I don’t know why this video is so funny. But it is. The captions really add to the laugh value.

Vancouver, BC, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics (in case you didn’t know) is also home to some of the best food in the northwest. Thankfully the NYTs bourgeois sensibilities have stumbled upon this fact and wrote this story. On top of your game aren’t you?

This is one of the weirdest but apparently most effective ways to battle global warming. So start saving the planet, and start painting your roof white. I suppose it makes perfect sense, but it just sounds so simple. We’ll know it’s effective when the GOP starts speaking out against it.

I can’t say that it’s been cold at all in Colorado this winter. In fact, it’s been scarily balmy and dry, making for crap skiing and shorts rich running. But in case it does start to get cold, and in honor of my upcoming trip to Milwaukee, a recipe for cassoulet, a french stew involving beans, meat, and lots of other hearty ingredients.

Ever wonder whether the size of a country’s GDP had any correlation to its medal count at the Olympics? Is it really true that richer countries win more medals (with their attendant nicer facilities, farm systems, etc)? Apparently, not really.
