In talking to a friend who's thinking about taking up a martial art, my interest was piqued. I don't know much about differences of various martial arts, but I bet lots of folks in my friends list do! If you take, or have taken, a martial art (or several), tell me about it (them)! What's the focus? What do/did you like about it? What don't/didn't you like about it? Do you think I'd like it? And, finally, is there a good place to do it around the Boston area?

We were also talking about the Olympics, and I commented that I think it would be fun to get (back) into archery. So... any suggestions for places to do that, also in the Boston area?

From myfootprint.org:

Food 4.2
Mobility 1.7
Shelter 3.5
Goods/Services 4.7

In comparison, the average ecological footprint in my country is 24 acres per person.

Worldwide, there exist 4.5 biologically productive acres per person.

If everyone lived like me, we would need 3.2 planets.
