My husband went nuts with this feature and filled up his LAFMS site with 4 galleries and hundreds of images. Take a look.

20,000 sites on Drupal Gardens

In a little over 7 months, people have built over 20,000 sites on Drupal Gardens. I've been talking and emailing with dozens of them to find out what they think and to hear what new features they need. The range of people using Gardens is huge and includes people building sites for universities and hospitals, to global nonprofits, to Belgian pony breeders, to artist portfolio sites. It's great to see the variety.

Cancer-fighting foods

If you're a nutrition information junkie like me, you know that there is an ocean of research and articles about what foods will do your body the most good. I thought this article about the best foods to help beat back cancer was particularly interesting. The article summarizes the recommendations from a book written by Dr. John Farquhar, the founder of Stanford University's Prevention Research Center. He's keeps it simple - eat more of these five foods:

Berries - one cup per day for antioxidants to help ward off cell damage that can lead to cancer and other diseases.
Broccoli - 1/2 cup of cooked broccoli or other cruciferous veggies a day to aid in prevention of colorectal cancer.
Onions - 1/4 cup of onions, garlic, leeks or shallots for several anti-cancer agents.
Tomatoes - 1/2 cup cooked or 1 cup raw tomatoes three times a week to help prevent prostate cancer. Adding three daily servings of "rainbow vegetables" (red, orange, yellow, white, green or purple) provides even more disease-preventing micronutrients.
Soy - 8-10 grams tofu, soy nuts, soy milk or edamame a day to help prevent breast and prostate cancer.
