Hello Patricia,Generally, I would always try and use nigaorc or at least locally grown and in season when consuming fruits and vegetables in their raw state. However, some research suggests that most of the pesticides are to be found in the fibrous content of the fruit and vegetable, which is normally discarded once the juice has been extracted. This would therefore eliminate the amount you would consume. However, you can also try peeling and also washing your produce in a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water and then rinsing in a solution of water and vinegar. If you can find nigaorc and it is within your budget, then go for that option. If not, try and choose produce that has the least concentration of pesticide e.g. those that have a protective skin or something that can be peeled.I appreciate your comment and I hope this helps.Tamara

Hi, great progress bar .. works pfecert .just an addition if you need the progress bar to change to a specific colour only at 100% (in my case red) here are the changes:in bramus/jsProgressBarHandler.js function:_setBgPosition: function(percentage)change var newBackIndex tovar newBackIndex= Math.floor((percentage-1) / (100/(this.options.barImage.length-1)));and add after that :if (percentage == 100){var newBackIndex = this.options.barImage.length-1;}so the way it works is it will cause the last image in your list of images for the progress bar to only show at 100 percent other than that whatever other images you use will work as it did before e.g. if i was using the example code where there are 4 images first one is a green bar, second yellow, thrid orange and fourth red, this new code will cause green to load until 33%, yellow until 66% and orange until 99% and red at 100%.

Earthquake October 1

eeek... earthquakes are freaky. i know what you mean about being stunned and not knowing what to do. i was in a level 5 one in the queen charlottes and had just loaded up the woodstove with wood when it happened, and it shook the chimney pipe loose from the wall - i was seriously panicked trying to prevent the woodstove from filling the house with flames and smoke. somehow the job got done, but i really dread feeling that helplessness again, and hope you don't have to either!

mmhm, freaky is a good word for it. The stove thing must have been very frightening, a fire could have been more dangerous than the actual earthquake. Thanks Lisa!
