I'm back!

After a REALLY long hiatus, I'm making a feeble comeback into cyberspace ... I hope you haven't all forgotten me!

Thoughts for the day:
1) Only in Germany can you get married in a barn and sleep in the hay on your wedding night. Seriously. Thank you NY Times!!

2) An open letter to the next President about Food as a national security issue (by Michael Pollen)--- I'll let you read it for yourself, but suffice it to say, that after listening to the show about it on NPR I found myself (very briefly) fantasizing about being a farmer. I agree and hope we can implement at least some of these ideas.

3) Who I'm voting for this year: Barack Obama. Because he's thoughtful and clearheaded and seems to have good ideas about how to get us out of this (take your pick!) mess. John McCain is a good person, but I don't think he's the right guy right now.
