No, I didn't get lost in the wilderness...

I apologize for the mini and unexpected hiatus. Apparently packing up and moving half way across the country is more work than I had anticipated, and its cutting into my blogging time. Natalie and I are one week out from pulling up the stakes in Oakland and I am swimming in boxes and garage sale prep. Still, before we depart, I will try to write about some of my favorite Bay Area spots. Stay tuned!

And, if you're in the neighborhood on saturday, stop by the garage sale!


  1. Ben,

    I found a great book online from ~1922. You can download it for free at the Internet Archive.

    Secrets of meat curing and sausage making : how to cure hams, shoulders, bacon, corned beef, etc., and how to make all kinds of sausage, etc., and comply with all pure food laws (c1922)

    I thought you would get a kick out of it.

  2. DMS, thanks! I'll check it out, looks super interesting. Where in Texas are you, anyway?

  3. Ben,

    Lake Jackson. An hour south of Houston and 4 hours southeast of Austin.

    Welcome to town.
