    #1 Sun or wind; which will energize our future?
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Awesome stuff so far. It's already hard to pick just five, and there's still another weekend to go.

    Here's my own "energy" shot from last week.
