Because you got a double dose of trouble
and more than your share of contempt,
Your inheritance in the land will be doubled
and your joy go on forever.
Isaiah 61:~7 (context)
After having conducted a controlled experiment, I can confirm that it’s the dried apricots themselves, not the preservatives in store-brand dried apricots. Sorry, anybody who has to be around me for the next 24 to 48 hours, but it was for science. And my taste buds. Yum.
Is this turning into a food blog, or it just me?
Anyway, today I had two good things happen: I made initial contact with a City of Kirkland official about converting a vacant lot in our neighborhood into a park (he was cautiously willing to entertain the possibility, and I have the OK to see what neighbors think); and I pitched an initial outline for organizing the volunteer program to Every, with a quite positive response. Tomorrow I run a meeting with the Bike Alliance staff and will pitch it to them. Each day varies, but I detect a generally positive trend in my effectiveness overall.
