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.
