This is not an image of me but it could be me. Other bloggers write about the news. Here's something about the news today. Two columns in the grey lady's "most e-mailed columns" refer to an upcoming depression, the likes of which could render us helpless, jobless and starving by the side of the road. All that I can say is 'how lucky are we?' with our western Mass kick ass foodshed and the being super-thin?

Wanted: Dude who reads fat books, has a decent command of machinery with the big tires and knows where the brown trout swims. Rights to at least 40 acres of not too sandy soil west of the Connecticut River and north of Sunderland preferable. Blue eyes are very nice also.
