Recipe: Easy, no churn peach ice cream

Editor's note: This is an oldie but goodie recipe on Go Ask Mom. I first learned about this very easy recipe from Parent Hacks, a great website for parenting tips of all kinds. And I had to try it because I always have several cans of sweetened condensed milk in the cupboard and they only get used in December when I'm making seven layer bars. The recipe comes courtesy of Eagle Brand milk.

Are Wind Turbines a Danger to Wildlife? Ask the Dogs.

Kayla Fratt began preparing for her summer job in March, when a package of frozen bat carcasses arrived for her in the mail. Well, actually, the bats were for her border collies, Barley and Niffler, and it is really their summer job too. They needed to learn the scent of a dead bat, because they would be spending three months on wind farms, looking for bats killed by spinning turbines.

My dad’s prepping for the end times. Climate change makes me think I should, too.

My dad’s a prepper. At 69 years old, he lives alone in a world suddenly plagued by wildfires, extreme heat, novel viruses and sociopolitical unrest. Though he once kept a peripatetic lifestyle — moving between youth hostels, granny units and, at one point, his mother’s garage — he now owns a spacious double-wide in southern Oregon, with room to store plastic tubs filled with military Meals Ready-to-Eat, gallons of water, a reflective blanket and a firearm. He believes the last chapter of his life is coinciding with the last book of the New Testament.
