Wednesday night brought a terrific thunder and wind storm here in East Central Alberta. Thursday morning I was greeted by clear skies and freshly washed roadways, as well as many branches down along the way. As I pause between in my research and digging into statistics about Flagstaff County I gaze out of my office window to the neighboring pasture across the road where most of the cattle herd have settled down in the grass to ruminate. The hillside is dotted with low slung bodies barely visible over the waving grass. In the pasture, next to the office, the horses have yet to appear. All is quiet there, where yesterday was quite a stir as this year’s crop of foals were loaded on a trailer and taken out to wean. The mares were less than pleased, and spent the rest of the day circling back to the gate where the truck had left the pasture with their foals. I wonder what the weekend will bring?

red flower in barley headsThis blog was started as a way to keep my colleagues across NNY region updated with progress of a regional local foods project.  This project has since been completed and I have left my position at Cornell Cooperative Extension Franklin County.  But my interest in local food has not waned, nor has my desire to say something about it.  Granted my outlook has shifted a tad bit west and north as I have returned to my home province of Alberta, Canada.

Most recently I was facilitating a workshop on social media, and one of the participants mentioned that she had recently started a blog on WordPress, and since I was talking about how to manage your social media presence using Hootsuite could I please show her how to connect her WordPress Blog to Hootsuite.  And I realized that I had a WordPress blog that was sitting idle, not serving it’s purpose, although I still had something to say about the topic on which I started this blog.

So I have decided to reclaim my WordPress blog, I will retain the past postings but I will pull down the additional pages that referred to the regional project.  I hope if you had been following me you will continue to do so.  Who knows maybe we can learn something together.
