With a green thumb, love of landscaping and master gardener education, Jim Thomas, a food service worker who makes deliveries from the Purdue Memorial Union to its satellite operations, transformed a concrete alcove behind the Purdue Memorial Union into an herb garden last spring.

The Icecreamists says its "Baby Gaga" ice-cream sold out as soon as it launched today.

London shop to make breast milk ice cream
LONDON (Reuters) – A specialist ice cream parlour plans to serve up breast milk ice cream and says people should think of it as an organic, free-range treat.
The breast milk concoction, called the "Baby Gaga," will be available from Friday at the Icecreamists restaurant in London's Covent Garden.
Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor was confident his take on the "miracle of motherhood" and priced at a hefty 14 pounds ($23) a serving will go down a treat with the paying public. The Baby Gaga recipe blends breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest, which is then churned into ice cream.

A pair of red-tailed hawks have been aggressive toward people on the southwest side of the Purdue University campus. “Be alert and carry an umbrella, which when opened will provide a shield and deterrent should the hawks swoop down,” suggested Gary Evans, director of grounds. A pair of hawks nesting in the area of the Purdue Village apartments and Birck Nanotechology Center have attacked several pedestrians.
I had to walk over to another building and didn't have my umbrella!!!!!! I told my co-workers if I didn't come back to look in the ski for me. YIKES!
