In Praise of Beaters

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: all cars are the same. The same handful of people design them. They’re made in the same factory. They have the same engines. All that’s different is the ads and, maybe, the plastic on the glove compartment. You see, years ago, I discovered the secret […]

Kelly’s New Desk

Kelly wanted something to look forward to after her surgery. Specifically, she requested a desk for her shed office from a design in Christopher Schwartz’s The Anarchist’s Design Book. I’ve linked to Schwartz’s blog in the past and can’t say enough good things about his books. In addition to being well written they are just […]

I Just Got a Covid Vaccine

Well, maybe. This morning I began my participation, along with 30,000 other people in the world, in the third stage trial of the BioNTech/Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. A doctor at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center gave me an exam, then a nurse took my temperature, checked my blood pressure and administered a nasal Covid […]

Kelly and Chocineal

First off, many thanks to all of you for the well wishes for Kelly. She made it home and up the 30 steps to the house yesterday. The first few weeks after open heart surgery are rough and she’s, obviously, taking it easy today. Is suspect she’ll be up and about faster than after the […]

Good News

Kelly made it through an eight hour open heart surgery yesterday. Her surgeon reported that the operation was, in his words, “successful if tedious.” She has a new valve and a repaired aorta.

Thanks! I was interested in your comment regarding bringing 4H to city kids. I have been thinking about doing something similar to that where inner city kids could come to the farm as part of a summer program. They could be part of the planting, harvesting and selling of veggies (learning life skills) in addition to feeding and caring for the animals. I have a friend who works with kids in East L.A. as part of an after school program and we are trying to incorporate the concept into a package that works here in MA. Big Plans!...maybe too big. And yes, hippie attire is mandatory

Just purchased your book along with Scott Kellogg's "Toolbox for Sustainable City Living." As a resident of Baltimore City, they're right down my alley! Can't wait to read.
