Interesting statement

Like the progressivism of the 1900s, but unlike the labor movement and agrarian populism, the progressivism of the 2000s is a movement of haves motivated by pity for the have-littles and have-nots, rather than a movement of have-littles and have-nots motivated by self-interest. And because they are, or believe themselves to be, motivated by philanthropy, the progressive haves are less interested in the economic struggles of the have-littles of the broad working class than in rescuing a far smaller number of have-nots from dire poverty.

Just how bad was the garden this year?

September 9th.

Just ate my first ripe tomato -- a cherry one at that.

Dinner at least is grilled garden fresh taters :)

Thank God I'm a Country Boy...

Had to take Monday off from work to fix my rear brakes, parts fell off when I went to rotate my tires on Sunday evening, so I made my annual trip to Wi Li Kit for an ice cream.

Wi Li Kit can be described by the single word, decadent. If you've never had it, you don't have a proper perspective for understanding the term, "best ice cream you've ever had."

While I sat at a picnic table, ice cream dripping down the cone hot off the waffle maker, the sweet, earthy aroma drifted from the dairy barn across the street and blended with the smell of the freshly cut hay bales sitting in a wagon next to the stand -- just the perfect bouqet to complement the raspberry choclate chip ice cream!
