sustainable and local meats

For those of you who live in San Diego, check out Home Grown Meats in La Jolla. I bought some flank steak the other day, it was tender and juicy. The meat is grown locally and is fed grass...ONLY grass it's whole life! Check out their website and decide for yourself.

Solomon Islands

I'm leaving on my third adventure to the Solomon Islands, yaaaayyyyyy!!! During the summers of 2005 and 2006 I coordinated a National Science Foundation funded field school for a professor at UC Santa Barbara. This time, I'm going with my husband who has been working there for over 8 years. While he does his research, I will be conducting my own research relating to perinatal mortality and will be working in rural clinics throughout the Western Province. Through the Loloma Foundation and Direct Relief International, I was able to secure a large donation of medications for the clinics that I will be visiting. The locals will be so happy and thankful!

I'll take lots of pictures and post them when/if I can since there is very limited internet access. So for now, have a great summer and enjoy the sunshine. Don't forget to wear sunscreen!!!!

Here are a few pics from my last visit:
