We're not exactly the Jacksons


And just like that, my dreams of having a family band are shattered.

What do you think?  Can I at least hope for high school marching band?

A thing I like
I'm reading a book called Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter. It's not officially out until mid-June but you can read her blog here.  She has a full-on farm going in a vacant lot in the ghetto of Oakland, CA.  She's majorly hardcore, but sort of my hardy and hale DYI model.  I mean, I just want a couple laying hens and some cucumbers and she kills her own bunnies for meat.  Still, very interesting stuff.  Sort of Mad Max meets Wendell Berry.

i don't think you should give up on them yet. i see maggie more as a trumpet kind of girl, and ollie...dude, he's not a front man, but that soulful guy thumping on the bass. i can't believe they're already in real beds. they're room looks cute.

get the chickens. GET the CHICKENS. oh, i mean hens. (what's the difference again?)
