ex machina

one is the loneliest hamburger. but still tasty nonetheless.

kris and odin have gone up to da u.p. a couple of days ahead of me in advance of what will hopefully be a fun celebration of odin's second birthday with lots of family.

and sure that'll be fun and all, but for now the house is empty and i'm trying to remember how to cook for one. which somehow seems harder than i remember and obviously i didn't get very imaginative. but hey, thanks to the job and the company store discount the 100% organic pasture-grazed beef cost less than regular hamburger. if you're a carnivore you might want to see if you can get organic prairie meat near you. and they really do give all their animals ( including chickens and dairy cows ) plenty of light and large grazing areas unlike some other organic operations:

"A different kind of organic dairy farm is emerging out west — corporate-owned feedlot operations with thousands of cows that are fed organic grain but, according to critics, get little chance to graze."

"Fears that big operations will muscle out family farms have produced a backlash, including a boycott by the Organic Consumers Association against the country's biggest organic milk brand, Horizon Organic."

"The nation's largest farmer-owned organic dairy co-op, the Organic Valley Family of Farms, based in LaFarge, Wis., says its 572 family-owned dairy farms nationwide already exceed the proposed standards."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
