Computer Corner

by Candice Sherrill, Master Gardener

RECIPES
If you're looking for new recipes to showcase the tasty fruits and veggies you've been growing, the Valley's own Mad Coyote Joe has archived recipes from his popular weekly television show, The Sonoran Grill, at this site. You'll find hundreds of dishes listed here, from A as in Artichoke Spread to Z as in Sauteed Red Potatoes with Baby Zucchini. http://www.sonorangrill.com/

PLANT IMAGES
Do you know what Adder's Tongue looks like? What about Achyranthes splendens? Now you can find out by visiting the National Museum of Natural History's web page. Here, you'll find photographs and botanical prints of many of the world's plants. The images are copyrighted, but may be reproduced for non-commercial, scientific, educational, and personal use. http://www.nmnh.si.edu/botany/images.htm

FOR BOTANICAL BRAINIACS
Here's a worldwide list of botany-related Usenet Newsgroups. A Usenet Newsgroup (for the uninitiated) is a specialized electronic communications forum. Most if not all of these groups are limited to use by researchers, but the general public can "listen in" on discussions if they wish to sign up. http://www.ou.edu/cas/botany-micro/iasprr/usenet.shtml

CONGRESSIONAL ACTIVITIES
Visit Thomas (as in Jefferson), to keep track of Federal legislation as it passes through Congress. This searchable database is made possible through the Library of Congress. http://thomas.loc.gov/home/abt_thom.html
