Terra Organics in Tacoma have a CSA from their farm in Orting and also source produce from other independent farmers in our region.

Check it.


They also put on a Harvest Fest on October 5 with great food and live music.


Plus they're just sweet people.

"An armed society is a polite society" said Robert Heinlen.

Well no.

Canada is a polite society. Sweden is a polite society. New Zealand is a polite society.

Our society?

Not so polite.
Jul 2 codswallower commented on Union Activists Call Bullshit On Forward Seattle's Anti-$15 Minimum Wage Signatures.
I had a brief discussion with a signature gatherer outside the Trader Joe's in Queen Anne. I wanted to know if the TJs employee he just bought his lunch from knew he was outside the store advocating to lower his wages.

At this point he called me a liberal and tried to end our conversation.

"One more question" I said. "What are they paying you to gather signatures?"

Again, no response.

A quick Google search for signature gathering jobs turns up this;


Surprise! It pays $15 an hour.

I had the distinct impression that these where not city people.

Does "dominant" now simply mean "I want to behave like the selfish misogynist men in all the porn I watch"?
May 12 codswallower commented on Canadian Avant-Pop Violinist Nash the Slash, 1948-2014.
New Years Eve shows with Nash The Slash at the Masonic Temple on Yonge Street were a high point of my teenage years in TO.

A piece of my youth has died.

He'll be missed.

Dan Dan noodles at 7 Stars Pepper. Which are hand shaved off a huge block of noodle. This turns out to be a great idea.

Damn, got a really sweet set of Rolf Prima's at that shop for a steal.

Guess it really was.
Feb 1 codswallower commented on Now Less Kafkaesque.
When I lived in Berlin I learned that the missing piece for most readers of Kafka in English translation is the humor.

My girlfreind at the time thought he was hilarious.

He seems almost quaint in light of NSA revelations of late.

Notice how the most un-democratic countries have the word "Democratic" in their names?

"Freedom" in the name of your activist group makes the same announcement.
Sep 25, 2013 codswallower commented on Odds Are, Your Kid Has Done Nothing in His or Her Short Life Worthy of a Trophy.
You do realize that the "everyone gets a trophy" meme has been a right wing talking point for at least a decade, right?

And that kids from poor and working class families never get a trophy? Or a decent education or affordable health care or healthy food etc.?

And plus, get offa my lawn!
