Morning link salad...

Being the world's biggest fan of the one pot meal, it's rare that I invent a side dish that I'm really happy with. So, I have to post a link to last night's Braised Carrots and Chickpeas. Which could actually be a one pot meal, in a pinch, but I served it as a side with pan-grilled sausages.

The headline In Lincoln's Watch, A Mystery Revealed had my brain expecting a piece of Doctor Who fan fic entitled "Five US Presidents Who Were Really Time Lords", but the truth is cooler.

The Guardian has made a bunch of the statistical data it has collected available online, in Google Spreadsheet format. I've been particularly fascinated by Carbon dioxide emission per capita for each US state. What are they doing in Wyoming? Drinking light sweet crude for breakfast?
