What my dark side desires.

I like to think that I have my desires under control. I can *usually* keep myself from lashing out at everyone I know that has a Vitamix, even though I desire one so desperately. And *usually* I can turn my head the other way when I see anyone driving a Wagoneer (what can I say? ...more

While it feels like a vacation to me to zone into the happenings of River Cottage, in fact, it’s quite inspiring and educational.

I drive myself crazy!
