Welcome to the family.

I just added another little Apple to the family. If you’re looking at getting a new computer consider Apple’s refurbished inventory. They are returns that have been totally refurbished at the factory, certified by Apple, and repackaged with the regular warranty for less $$$. Free shipping too.

This thing arrived on my doorstep two in two business days without a scratch on her. They refurbish everything from iphones to cinema displays. I may never buy another new Apple product again.

    I’ve been taking advantage of this little secret for years. I always recommend it to people too buying Mac’s for the first time. Plus they even will sell you the 3 year replacement plan too, so there is really nothing to worry about.

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
