sardinistas unite! or rise of the humble sardine?

i love me some sardines. i mean if there are no steamed clams to be had, how could you go wrong? although i had reduced my intake over the years for no other reason than the fact that kris can't stand them, i've recently actively sought them out because they are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and my doctor said i should get more omega-3s. who knew there was a whole movement afoot to reintroduce sardines to the American palate:

We want to reinvent the sardine and this time do it a little more thoughtfully," Shelley, 58, explained at recent propaganda lunch here on Cannery Row, which once served as headquarters for the California sardine fishery. "We want to value what these fish can give to us from an ecological standpoint and a health standpoint. And we think there are real ways to enjoy them.
i'm sold. and yet, why do i have to enjoy lightly smoked sardines in a tomato sauce from portugal when my relatives ran the sardine museum in downeast maine fer pete's sake. why can't i get some sardines from maine. surely some young entrepreneur must be working on that.

"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.
