If you head over to you will find a great article on Dr. Bronners. Kelly is also one of the kindest blog writers I know. Its almost frightening but her blog is always insightful and prone to making you want to live a little more wisely.

In other news its 19 dollars to go see a movie at night with a companion. What planet are we living on where that is acceptable. Its like we are tithing to these actors for letting us look at them. I now declare that I will wait to get all movies until it is 5 bucks somewhere. We should start a website for the movement.

Ok so, some of you may or may not know that Iceland is on the verge of revolution. Long story short, the Icelandic Krona is worth as much as their steel industry** and people are creating what seems to be, from reading what I can find about it, a civil uprising against the banking system and government. This is all untold in our media mostly because we seemed to be more involved in Britney Spears' troubled existence and American Idol rather than whats really important, which I believe is the human living condition. From what I gather it is getting harder and harder for the Icelanding community to buy food. This is not a knew thing seeing as mostly everything in Iceland is imported and a 4 million dollar trade deficit is the norm. Sure these people will survive and prosper. They are a fully function country with some of the brightest minds in the world far from a third world country, but one of the pushes by their government is to join the European Union and adopt the Euro bringing it ever closer to American soil. If this doesn't frighten you it should.

On a brighter note the coffee industry is thriving and people lives in desolate places are being made better daily by the realization of good coffee equals great lives for people all over the world. Now I just need to get an Icelanding fish store opened and make it as trendy as possible. Thats a tough road.

I love you all,
Jacob Orr

** Iceland has no steel Industry. Aluminium is on the rise though!
