Sweet sounds and sweet taste

Notice a poll to the left. You can vote until September 29, the day of the election.

One thing we can all agree on. Susan Boyle can sing. Last night she was on America's Got Talent. Wild Horses begins at 2:40 on this clip.

The winner was chicken catcher Kevin Skinner. He's good, too, as is runner up Barbara Padilla.

Did you know, that when you buy sugar, you can buy a "certified carbon free" product.

Now I've had a lot of organic chemistry, and I am trying to figure this out. Sugar (sucrose) has a molecular structure of C12H22O11. That's 12 carbon atoms in a molecule.

Oh, wait. Here is what it means. On the side of the bag it says "We are proud to share with you that the sugar you find in this bag of Domino sugar was grown and harvested on our Florida farms and has been certified Carbonfree® by, a non-profit organization that certifies products with carbon neutral footprints."

Learn more about Domino's efforts go here.

The label CarbonFree® means the product's carbon footprint is rendered neutral by cutting green house gases. And that's a sweet thing for all of us!

Our certification is unique because our Florida-farmed products' carbon neutrality is the result of our own production and supply of clean, renewable energy, which replaces the use of fossil fuels. Our renewable energy facility generates eco-friendly power for our sugar milling and refining operations as well as tens of thousands of homes.

So when you purchase one of Domino® Sugar's packages with the CarbonFree® label, not only are you sweetening your family's favorite foods, you're helping to sweeten the earth!

It's the same sugar, at the same price (at least where I bought it).


Mary Travers died yesterday. I grew up listening to my older brothers' albums of Peter, Paul and Mary. In my opinion they helped define a generation. Thank you Mary.

What is your favorite Peter, Paul and Mary song?
