Reduce, re-use, recycle

As anybody seen the TV program "It's mot easy being green". They should have used this as the sound track.

New mouse species on our doorstep.

It is not often that a new mammal species is discoverd in Europe. After careful comparisons of the different mice species on the island of Cyprus, Bonhomme et al. (2004) considered the Cyprus mouse to be sufficiently different to the other known mice in the region to name it as a new species: Mus cypriacus. Sorry, but can't find a photo.

Best pears to juice

I have recently bought a juicer and have been testing which pears are best for juicing.

2 Conference pears weighing 480g provided 300mL of juice: 0.62mL/g at a price of £2.40/L
The juice was sweet, creamy but not powdery and gave an olive green colour.

2 Comice pears weighing 510g provided 375mL of juice: 0.73mL/g at a price of £2.36/L
The juice was thick with small bits, pulpy, sweet and a muddy brown colour.

2 Williams pears weighing 285g provided 125mL of juice: 0.43mL/g at a price of £3.47/L
Very thick juice almost like a smoothy, strong pear flavor with a creamy brown colour.

I would suggest using Comice pears for juice as they provided the most juuice per gram although Conference pears are probably just as good as they are usually a bit cheaper so the price per mL is very similar.
