Have you ever eaten a Pine Tree?


     This was an infamous quote from the godfather of foraging, Euell Gibbons.  The inner bark is edible, but that is for another article.  I’m here to talk about pine needles.  Pine trees are everywhere here in Alabama.  There are different types of pine that grow here.  Different varieties smell and taste different.  My favorite is the Virginia Pine.  It has short twisted needles in bunches of three.  Its fragrance is stronger than the other varieties around.  Besides the pine smell I get a grapefruit/citrus smell.  Pine needles have five times more Vitamin C than in one cup of orange juice.  Pine Needle Tea is also used by Native Americans to treat coughs and colds.  It helps expel phlegm from your body.  The easiest way to use pine needles is to make tea.  You can use any pine needles from a tree.  Make sure they are green and not brown, clip the brown ends off and put them into a tea or coffee cup.  Pour boiling water over the needles, cover and steep for 10 minutes.  You can drink it straight up or sweetened.  It has a nice clean flavor.  Not like pinesol at all. You can also infuse the pine needles into other things.  Really, the sky is the limit for creativity!

A word of caution.  You should not eat pine needles or drink the tea if you are pregnant.  Eating pine needles has been known to cause abortions in cows.

I was [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-2-Jeter-Red-2011-All-Star-Jerseys-102/]Yankees 2 Jeter Red 2011 All Star Jerseys[/url] given early access to experts, presumably due to having a high Klout score. So far, I've been presented with a series of questions based on the topics I am influential in Chicago, iPhone and social media [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-42-Mariano-Rivera-red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-68/]Yankees [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Brewers-1-Hart-blue-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-31/]Brewers 1 Hart blue 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] 42 Mariano Rivera red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] for examples. I can also look at other questions being answered and lend my opinion even if I'm not listed as influential in that area.

Some examples of questions I've been asked include "How do I grow the community I manage?" and "What are your top three favorite iPhone apps, and why?" To keep answers from getting too unwieldy, Klout has wisely limited these responses to [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-Philadephia-Phillis-8-Shane-Victorino-Red-Jerseys-22/]2009 All Star Philadephia Phillis 8 Shane Victorino Red Jerseys[/url] 300 characters. So far, I have responded to 141 questions.

According to Fernandez's blog post, an even smaller subset of Klout Experts are already having their answers delivered on search engine Bing. Eventually, as this opens up to more users and more answers make it to Bing, it increases the likelihood of more social media relationships being forged.

Earlier this week, I was asked how Klout Experts differs from Quora, a question and answer website edited and organized by its community. While similar on the surface, Klout isn't allowing [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Cardinals-50-Adam-Wainwright-Road-Cool-Base-Grey-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-94/]Cardinals 50 Adam Wainwright Road Cool Base Grey 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] editing of responses by others at least not at this time and Quora's questions aren't always centered around a particular topic. For example, a popular question on Quora is "What is the meaning of life?" And while those answers are informative and interesting, Klout's methods are much more specific and targeted.
