Notes from my back porch...

course of the day I noticed how much I WANTED to talk, and how many mine
yesterday (a head cold that went south into my throat) and during the course
of the day I noticed how much I WANTED to talk, and how many people
there were to talk TO! Despite my inability to croak a full sentence, I realized
how many people during the course of my day that I bump into that I want to
chat with -- at our farmer's market, in the neighborhood, at the store, at my
child's dance class. It made be feel blessed that I live in a community where
we're all always bumping into each other no matter where we go.  This is not
the place to be if you want to be anonymous.  But, I like that.  

I also realized how much more I need to LISTEN rather than blab.  It has been
a humbling experience.  What others have to say is very important to listen
to.  My voice is coming back today, but I take with me these little lessons I've
learned.  :)

This week I'm publishing a story that I wrote a couple of years ago after I
listened :) to one individual tell his story about his wonderful apples.  This is
an extraordinary man with an extraordinary mission:  to save heirloom apples
for generations to come.  Click here to read story,
"The Keeper of Apples."

UVM's Morgan Horse Farm
Almost hidden on a side road in
Weybridge, Vermont is the
University of Vermont
Morgan Horse Farm, an absolute
gem among the state’s must-see
attractions.  Yet, “attraction” is hardly
a fair word for it, since it isn’t commercialized or glitzy.  It’s serene
and beautiful; the grounds are gorgeous, the foals are romping in the pastures
and the horses are always in beautiful shape.

Sliced Pork Tenderloin - Venetian-Style
By Charlie Burke

I’ve found that pork tenderloin, sliced
and pounded thin, works well in any
recipe calling for veal scaloppini
or pounded chicken breasts. I avoid
using veal and find that pork has
more flavor than chicken, unless
I’m able to find free range local chicken.
