Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me this week online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat, and a picture.    

"[Sentayehu Teshale] can do things with his legs that we can't do with our hands." Indeed.

"Literature doesn't just make us smarter, however; it makes us us, shaping our consciences and our identities." A Slow-Books Manifesto: Read books. As often as you can. Mostly classics. (via Mike Dell'Aquila)

Wegmans is great! But I still buy groceries at Wal-mart too. I'm an equal opportunity shopper (and on a budget).

Aaron's Wish: VCU's bioengineering and physical therapy students worked together to grant his wish of riding a bike in spite of a congenital condition that severely limits his joint movement. Amazing.

A Growing Generation: Crops of young farmers are redefining the Central Virginia landscape and changing the way we think about food. Passion put to work by brave, industrious souls.

Recipes Bookmarked

Cherry Blossoms at Maymont, March 2012, Richmond, VA 

I'm glad Miike Snow has a new album that sounds just as upbeat as their last one.
