Fragments from Floyd

Monday Bits 2010-07-12

We’re bringing home some dog-lick victims today. Tsuga has already promised to accept all attentions directed his way by our two grand daughters for the next couple of days and respond with copious licking. We head down to Raleigh to pick them up, and carry them back to meet their mom on Thursday before they head off once again to South Dakota. So blogging? You gotta be kidding?

But I did want to pass along this link to Sun Oven (there is a local distributor in Floyd, sorry can’t find the Press article in the time I have.) But having just written a piece about the high cost of air-conditioning AND experiencing the heat of the oven on days when I’d rather avoid MAKING heat in the house, this has possibilities. And I’m thinking too about its use as a dehydrator for summer and fall fruits and veggies. Give this a look!

And…I’ve revisited Issuu and thought I’d point you to what might have been a book titled here “Bridging the Nature Gap” but also considered calling it “What They Hold in Their Hands.” The text portions and even some of the images (in black and white of course) are include in What We Hold In Our Hands: a Slow Road Reader. But…news brief: I’m conceptualizing BOOK #3, about which, more soon!
