Vermicomposting Workshop

Filed under: Worm Bin — JeniQ @ 12:39 pm

This week I got to do something really fun. I found out that the City of Raleigh’s Recycling folks were sponsoring a vermicomposting workshop so I asked if I could help out. They accepted my offer so I showed up with worm bins in tow Tuesday evening. Bianca, who works in Education for the City, was running the workshop. She’s a really neat person who introduced me to worms several years ago at a composting workshop. (Thanks Bianca!)

Here she is teaching the class.

She asked me to talk to the class for a bit and we ended up teaching the rest of the class together. It’s so much fun to teach people about worms and answer their questions. A dozen or more people left that night with worm bins prepared to get started vermicomposting. Woot!!

Left vs. Right

Filed under: Entertainment — JeniQ @ 11:44 am

When not jamming out to some Bowie on my car radio, the dial is usually set to NPR. Lately, I’ve been getting really annoyed at the liberal slant with which NPR delivers all its news. So I recently switched the dial over to 680 AM figuring I’d get a good conservative harangiung. I was right. I appreciated hearing a diffferent opinion, but couldn’t take all the attitude and scoffing, not to mention the commercials. So, as one-sided a view as NPR is, I’ll continue to listen to it because at least they’re civilized.

Why doesn’t anyone tell me anything?

I need a service that keeps me up-to-date with all the stuff I love cuz I never know about things until it’s too late. For instance, I just found out that Billy Bragg is playing tonight at Duke. I would LOVE to go but I can’t. Sad sad sad!!!

Pensive Billy Bragg

I tried to convice Dave that I should go or otherwise I’d have to fly to England to see him, but he didn’t go for it.

Glad to have that off my chest. Thanks to my honey for picking me up and voting with me. It’s a nice thing to do together.

  • Moonage Daydream (A. Corns)
  • Life on Mars
  • Quicksand
