We are having a grand time creating podcasts. Actually Jay was rather reluctant but once he did a couple of them with me, he was sold. You can hear the podcasts at http://www.bluerockstation.com or listen on the radio at WOUB AM Studio B (When the Biomass Hits the Wind Turbine Show), and WGRN (Arriving at Blue Rock Station). We’re having fun with Chris Luers as our producer (Barking Frog Media) putting together the audio shows about life as we see it. Stay tuned for more including online webinars plus two new books.
Secondly I realize that lots of the things we’re doing in our life together would be interesting to me even if it wasn’t us talking about preserving food, solar energy, and safe travel…
You’ll find more information in those podcasts then you could ever imagine. I hope you’ll listen to one or two, and let us know what you think.
The new peacock and his hen arrived with great fanfare. The chickens were immediately intimidated by the long peacock tail and huddled together as I carried him down through the field to the hen house. Over time though they all figured out how to live together, and then a raccoon tore through two layers of wire to brutally kill Mr. Peabody. In a short time we had all grown to admire and respect his grandeur and abilities. Penelope, his mate was at a loss without him, but she continued her daily supervision of Laura Nein’s 4th grade class chicks, and still went on her own into the hen house at night. She’s happy to report that a new Mr. Peabody and his mate, Petunia appeared suddenly this week and while I am still grieving for the grandest peacock ever, it seems like life is moving forward (in peafowl land anyway).
Food, the Heart of Sustainability:
I love potatoes… but doesn’t everybody? One of my favorite ways to fix them this time of year is to boil them, drain and then add some course salt with pepper. Newly dug potatoes are best for this recipe, which is often requested by returning interns. You can’t go wrong with this easy combination. Bon Appetite!
Words that Guided:
Just for today I will honor my own ability to make smart decisions in life…just to prove it I’m going to make a list of them.
Kindest Regards, Annie
