El Local

We cruised around Green Bay last weekend in hopes of finding a good Mexican place.  We pulled over and asked two teenage Mexican girls for advice.  They mentioned a number of restaurants, but couldn’t seem to give us directions to any of them.  Suddenly the one girl told us how to get to El Local  “On University, past the bank and before the next light. It looks like a house and you park in the back.”  She was spot on.  We found the largest burrito we have ever seen.  Note C’s hand in the photo of the burrito.  And tasty.  (The burrito.)  We shared and could not finish our portions.  The chips and salsa were also very good.

Dickson Despommier tells us the story of how the insatiable millionaire John D. Rockefeller turned an eye to the untapped market of the American South and ended up eradicating the hookworm (and, in the process, a number of other awful afflictions) with an ingenious contraption. Then Patrick Walters introduces us to Jasper Lawrence, a modern-day entrepreneur whose passion for hookworms stems from lifelong battles with allergies and asthma. But unlike Rockefeller, Jasper sees this parasite as friend, not foe. (source: WNYC Radiolab)

I am posting this link for the interest and potential benefit of certain friends and acquaintances who have Celiac's Disease, allergies and/or asthma. Make a point to listen to this story, particularly the second segment.
