Farmboxdays Gazette – 11.07.2012

Recently, my parents came to stay. It was observed that I spend a lot of time on the computer.

“What are you doing?” they asked, because it must appear I am doing nothing. “Reading,” I answered.

Which led me to think I could capitalize on my pastime or, at least, I should so as to be able to justify it.

Thus here begins a new series of posts on this blog, “new” for all 21 of you regular followers who will notice the difference. As a point of pride it must be said that not all 21 are related to me.

The object is to share a bit of what I read, since most of it is about food. Here goes… (Mom, click on the underlined bit to get to the link.)
