Weekend Reading


Great round up of fruit smoothie recipes at the Well blog at the NYT -- with seeds and nuts thrown in.

The WSJ ran an interesting article on Sen. Gillibrand and the Farm Bill. Don't miss our action alert on this topic.

Want to avoid eating GMOs (genetically modified organisms, i.e. food)? Read this.

If you're loading up on sunscreen, try these - reports on aerosol sunscreen's ability to burst into flames and which sunscreens are unsafe also on the NYT site.  Then check out the sunscreen safety database at the Environmental Working Group.

Local Fun
You may have to check out the croquet course set in Clifton Park - pictured here - which also takes you on a tour of the origins of the universe.  We thought it was great fun and now know a lot about black holes and quasars.

Also in Sea Cliff -from the Great Book Guru:
First Annual Sea Cliff Bloomsday Celebration- meet at the Sea Cliff Water Tower aka Martello Tower on Saturday, June 16 at 8:30am for a walk through the pages of James Joyce's ULYSSES. There will be brief readings at each stop along  this Joycean jaunt which will end at Sea Cliff Beach aka Dublin Bay.
The Strawberry Festival is in Mattituck this weekend.

"The Seed" is a vegan show in the city this weekend - food tastings, films, cooking demonstrations, etc.

On Saturday, in conjunction with their Jim Dine exhibit, you can try silk-screening and making your own kite at the Nassau County Museum of Art.

The Planting Fields is having a free Father's Day acoustic concert Sunday at 1:30pm.  (There is a parking fee).

 On Sunday, you can build a bat house at the Sands Point Preserve.
