Hey Again

Dude. After the college quarter of doom (informative and fun, but super punishing) I pulled up stakes and have spent the last three weeks zipping around California visiting friends and family. I now seem to have spent enough time slouching around in living rooms and restaurants with many of my favorite people to achieve full decompression. (Also, I tried Vietnamese and Jordanian food for the first time, knitted a hat, went on a leisurely motorcycle ride through the LA foothills, got back in touch with some high school friends, had a totally delightful time with my family, drove a damn big truck from LA to SF, saw Aeon Flux, had Emerald Prawns at the Hangen restaurant in Mountain View, found a pair of killer leather pants on ridiculous markdown and was gifted with a new-to-me printer that has the right sort of plug for my laptop. This was capped by spending a day on my return at The Metaphorest, a house of many roommates in Seattle, whose escape velocity seems to be increasing hourly.)

Wahoo! Anyway, I certainly hope all of you had as pleasant a time over your holiday season and wish everyone a very happy New Year :)

So, for better or worse, you'll all be seeing a lot more of me around these here parts as I resume normal blogging service. I expect to be writing more about agricultural issues and likely a good bit more about local political issues. Also, look for a write-up of my interview with Darcy Burner, the only currently running Democratic candidate for Washington's 8th Congressional District.

I don't know what's in your css file, but going from blog to blog, this one is significantly smaller print than most others. Of course I can hit the "larger font" button on my browser, but really you need a bigger default font. My $0.02.

Thanks, Eli, for the feedback. I hope this font size works better. (It can still be modified either way for the discriminating reader.)

I suspect that dumping corncobs in the ocean is not a valid means of sequestering carbon. Possibly composting excretions and clippings might work. Unfortunately, Agribusiness doesn't seem to have cooperative mechanisms for turning pig droppings into food.

Glad to have you back here and your adventures sound like a blast!
