I didn't get lost for over 90 minutes this morning. Nope I spontaneously explored the back roads of Lake and Porter County. I discovered several places to pick my own produce or buy local produce and other goodies. I discovered interesting looking nurseries.

It isn't that I spent over $700 on car repairs that I had not budgeted for the summer lean time. It is that I protected my investment and the "something is not right" feeling while driving is now gone. It also means that if worse comes to worse the car is ready for an emergency trip south to Oklahoma. No news yet on how surgery is going for my brother-in-law but they knew going in that it was likely to be at least 10-12 hours.

Requiring no spin at all -- asparagus quiche and a slice of strawberry rhubarb pie.

While cleaning this weekend, I came across the November 2007 issue of Chicago magazine. It included the Field Guide to Homo Sapiens Barackus. I just turned on CNN to listen to the primary coverage and spin. In all the talk of Bill Clinton's anger, Hillary Clinton's possible concession and VP spot, and the historic nature of Obama's run as a Black Man it is easy to lose sight of just how amazing his story is in terms of moving beyond the niche that is humorously presented by the Chicago magazine.

The people who have run his campaign have done something amazing. I am glad they are working for people who are generally in my camp as opposed to the far right Evangelical wing of the Republican party.

There is some overlap between the two but if you are interested in gardening, local foods, sustainable living/being self sufficient. I am actually doing something with my blog at long last.

In other blogs, I found absinthe gummy bears which I find oddly interesting and somewhat compelling.

I am finding something about John McCain's delivery of his speech to be -- creepy. I mean my skin crawling creepy. The little laugh thing seems to belong in a monster movie. The audience seems to be asleep and the reaction seem fake more often than real.
