What does it take to get ready for a hurricane?

I grew up in central Ohio.  So - I had tornado drills growing up . . . not hurricane drills.  

Further, I have lived on the East Coast north of New Jersey for the last nine years.  So - I have come to expect Nor'easters, public transportation annoyances, and a collective obsession with baseball . . . not hurricane warnings.   Then came Irene.


COMMUNITY NEWS: Local Roots CSA - Fall Season

I just got a note about the Local Roots CSA Fall Season...  they have locations in Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Williamsburg, and Tribeca and offer share options of vegetables, fruit, beef, duck, grains/beans, eggs, and bread.  

Their farmers are organic or use healthy growing practices.  Members can pick and choose which shares they would like and are not committed to a vegetable share, as is the case in most other CSAs.  Membership applications are due August 19th and they can sign up online at


Five U-Turns

A few weeks ago, my husband, the Bug, and I went on vacation with one of my husband's brothers and his family.  We spent almost every day bumping back and forth between the beach (a five minute walk) and the pool (a thirty second walk).  Tough life.  By the end of the week, in an effort to break out of our routine, we decided to do something different.
