Talk about a typo! I feel sorry for the editor who edited the cookbook called The Pasta Bible. Over 7,000 copies are now dunzo after it's recipe for spelt tagliatelle with sardines and prosciutto was supposed to call for freshly ground black pepper, but instead called for "salt and freshly ground black people."

I can't say I'm a fan of running on the treadmill; I find it so boring that I often cut my runs short just so I can get off and not want to punch myself in the face. But, the Nordic Track X7i is making me rethink my hatred. It uses a Wi-Fi connection in combination with and google maps to give you satellite, terrain and street level views of an infinite number of routes. You just punch in the route your want to run and the 7-inch touch screen will show you the passing scenery as you run. Not to mention the fact that it automatically adjusts to the incline or decline of the actual route based on the info gathered from google. It would be awesome to be able to run routes from back home here in PEI, or perhaps run the route of my upcoming half marathon in Montague from the comfort of my own home before race day.
