Earth Day and more

- Happy Earth Day! If you want to save our present environment, for us and for all the other creatures here, become a vegetarian, like me .... It May Take a Global Vegetarian Movement to Combat Climate Change ... It may be impossible to reach the U.N.'s goals without significant changes in global diet, a new study finds.

- On one of the blogs I visit, someone questioned whether Hillary Clinton was really a Democrat. I think a better question is whether Bernie is one ... Bernie Sanders isn’t a Democrat: And that’s a real problem when he needs Democrats for his “revolution” ... Is Bernie Sanders a Democrat? It’s a question that has mostly been ignored during this primary season, even though Sanders continues to identify as an “independent” in his senate work while trying to get the Democratic nomination for president.

- The latest tv series I'm renting is Grantchester ...

an ITV detective drama set in a 1950s Cambridgeshire village of Grantchester near Cambridge first broadcast in 2014. It features a local Anglican vicar Sidney Chambers (James Norton) who develops a sideline in sleuthing with the initially reluctant help of Detective Inspector Geordie Keating (Robson Green). The series is based on The Grantchester Mysteries collections of short stories, written by James Runcie.

The show is pretty good, and there's a little dog in it too :) Here's a trailer ...
