On the way in to school today, something one of us said referred to a 'knock off' of something. But, for some reason, my brain decided to change it to a "mock off." Then, we were off to the races.
A new musical genre could be "Mock and Roll" or maybe it is a new party game? The party game version probably requires one person to mock and the other person just rolls with it. But, the music version made me think of the Tony Orlando and Dawn song. You know what I'm talking about? "Mock Three Times on the ceiling....." We also seem to remember a song lyric about mocking on the window pane, but that would be a different thing altogether. To mock on a ceiling requires some talent. Mocking on a window pane seems a bit more doable. If you lay on the mockery too thick, I suppose you could call it an Amber Mock. If you don't get it, that's fine. I told you this was going to be a bit strange.
|That's a really pretty romanesco.|
I like to remind myself once in a while of two things. First, that I have a lot to learn. And, second, that many things I think are easy or self-evident were not always easy or self-evident to me. The first thing motivates me to keep learning and to not be too secure in what I think I know. The second thing motivates me to be patient and to do my best to facilitate learning as best I can. And now you know one reason we keep this blog going.
|November had moments|
Since we're on a farm related topic, one thing that is always on my mind this time of year is getting people to sign up for the CSA farm share program. It would be wonderful if we simply filled up with no effort each year. But, the reality is that it takes effort every year to get there. So, we're realizing it is time to start making that effort. If you haven't signed up yet, now is the time to say something. We're working on the web page and sign up form today. Help us out and get us filled up fast so we can focus on the growing rather than the marketing.
|Looking forward to the Nota Conference|
|Hindenburg.. .Hindenburg.... where have I heard that name before?|
Music is also a pretty big thing for me. I do like listening to it while I work and always have. At present, I have been enjoying music by the Classic Crime, House of Heroes, Evanescence, Apocalyptica, 2Cellos and a live set by the Choir. Did you need to know this? No. But, there you are anyway.
I've had the opportunity to speak at the PFI conference and at a couple of classes at Wartburg in the last month. I appreciate the chances to share and hopeful encourage learning and discussion. Sometimes, I wonder if I get too preachy about some topics and other times I wonder if I don't take a position on some topics with enough conviction. In the end, I have to conclude that if I wonder about both directions, I'm probably doing ok.
Have a good day everyone!
