Well I am officially back in the office as of yesterday and spent the last 2 1/2 days dealing with all the communications received during the few days off that I was out of the office.
Those of you who are on our mailing list have already received the newly designed newsletter, which was just sent out yesterday. The Brummet's Muse is now a bi-weekly newsletter and will be released around the 1st and 15th of each month. The newsletter will continue to share information on the upcoming featured guests and topics on our two online radio shows, where Dave and I are appearing next and inspiring quotes. I am currently learning all the new tools we have available for this newsletter format and as our knowledge of this program we are using improves, so will the newsletter.
We have new sign up widget inviting people to subscribe to the Brummet's Muse on this blog (upper right), on the first page of our site: www.brummet.ca - and on our myspace site - www.myspace.com/canadianauthor
Composting technology continues to come up with some amazing alternatives. Recently a machine called the Ecorect was announced to the public. This new invention is a high speed food waste recycling machine that rapidly dehydrates food and compostable wastes, grinding it to a powder and creating a soil amendment without the composting process.
Another composting system called HotRot is a controlled, odor-free composting machine that can process up to 100 tonnes per day of any kind of organic material by way of heat and microbes.
While these two new inventions have been tested and re-tested, they are now busy promoting the products to the public. I think these alternatives are very useful for today's society. I have also seen mini-composting systems for the condo or apartment dweller and for those with physical challenges that prevent outdoor composting. These systems vary widely and can operate with a combination on a low wattage, worms or microbiological activity and are designed for attaching to the side of a kitchen cupboard or to go in a cupboard or closet. An Internet search will reveal numerous variants on these ideas, each has merit and suits a particular situation.
