Sustainable SW Blogs
I know that some of you have been reading this blog since 2006, and we value our connection to you very much. I hope you will follow this cookie crumb trail post, which is an invitation to also connect with us on Facebook. This blog active still, but the trend of late seems to be frequent, small posts on social media and longer writings that come less frequently and post here to the blog (and to FB). That said, I welcome you to connect to us on Facebook .
Ciao for now,
Sorry if you checked in earlier today to see what classes we have but we were pedaling as fast as we could to get it done today! We are now happy to announce that they are up on this website. you can go to the top menu and will see all of them under the CLASSES/EVENTS menu or you can go here now and get there as well. Hope you get as excited about them as we are for this year!
Don't be a gun nut...spreading ridiculous rhetoric does not help the case for 2nd amendment rights in America.
Here’s a little tickler.
We are almost done with the planning for this year classes and events
and will release the info a little later this week once we complete the finishing touches. But I can tell you this—we will have the Seed Exchange, 10 classes, 2 potlucks, 2 workshops and the Kitchen Garden & Coop Tour. It’s going to be an exciting year with lots of new stuff to share with you. Check back in a few days!
- Shittim, the plural of Shittah, which is Hebrew for wood from the acacia tree, which appears in the bible.
- Micah 6:5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the Lord.6 Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
- Micah 7:16 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf.17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee.18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy.

The name of this album is Well, I Should Have...* subtitled Learned How To Play Piano.Yeah, it's very literal.Now, you're playing with professional jazz musicians: Scott Kreitzer on sax, David Finck on bass, and Jonathan Peretz is playing drums. Was this an act of friendship, or just a measure of the jazz economy — that you gotta do whatever gig comes along?They were very nice to do it, and I'm not sure they realized what they were doing until we got there. And then they were mad. But not mad enough to stop altogether. So they went through with it, and they were great.That is real untapped un-talent.[About saxophonist Scott Kreitzer] He's good.Yeah! He knows what he's doing.He really does. But that's just not as interesting.Do you think it lacks the complete sense of free-form surprise that you're after?He's not taking any risks. He just knows how to do it.How safe, to actually—[Laughs.] I feel bad for people like that.
