Johnson’s Backyard Garden

by Megan M. on November 14, 2008 (Blog) |

Oh, and by the way…

My Johnson’s Backyard Garden CSA membership is FREAKING AWESOME! I get tons of these beautiful little vegetables in a box every week, and a half dozen of good happy grass-fed eggs for Marty, and I transfer it all into my pretty rainbow bin and bring it home and then we EAT [...]

Late to the Party

by Megan M. on November 13, 2008 (Blog) |

I’ve been meaning to make a post all week about how I’ve been loathe to join new social networks because I feel repelled by the constant self-promotion that goes on in them. I’m thinking of getting rid of my MySpace account (and don’t act surprised, either), and maybe a few others. I didn’t have a [...]

You failed! And it was awesome!!

“I propose a toast to Lewis and his brilliant failure:
May it lead to success in the future!”

Marty and I watched Meet the Robinsons the other night. What a freaking fantastic movie! It was mostly just your usual vastly entertaining kids’ flick, but there are a couple of particular exceptions I would like to clearly note:

Over the past few years I’ve made a lot of dramatic changes in the way I eat. I nixed corn syrup, then wheat, then sugar, then meat, then dairy. I eat almost none of that now, with very few (and very particular) exceptions. At first, as you might imagine, it put a cramp on my [...]

Itsy Bitsy Business

by Megan M. on November 8, 2008 (Blog) |

Before discovering Naomi Dunford at IttyBiz, I didn’t know of any really good resources for teeny tiny businesses—you know, the ones you start out of your living room. I knew there was information out there (and I had slogged through a lot of it, building Virtual Magpie) but it was a rough path to take [...]

I need to believe (and so do you)

by Megan M. on November 7, 2008 (Blog) |

I’ve been thinking a lot about Tuesday’s election and the upliftingness of recent events. I’ve had several discussions with various people about what I’m experiencing vis-a-vis politics, of all things, and it’s sometimes overwhelming to think about. Otherwise, I’d have posted this Tuesday night (when I wrote it). In attempting to quantify my very complex [...]
