I left the World-Wide-Web to venture out into the real world. Twelve hours. Twelve measly hours and Van der Leun has three new posts. That’s on top of the three new ones I saw this morning which I barely had time to glance at before we left The Farm to make our way to the
“Lo! when the service was ended, a form appeared on the threshold, Clad in armor of steel, a somber and sorrowful figure! Why does the bridegroom start and stare at the apparition? Why does the bride turn pale, and hide her face on his shoulder?” The Courtship of Miles Standish, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Bobbs-Merrill
including this one. By my head count, there were 47 1/2. (Olive eats a lot but she just doesn’t put it down the way the guys do.) I made a couple of things this morning. Brandied fruit Beer potato salad By about 3pm were ready. Daughter C had made menus. We weren’t quite sure about
Today Mr. Big Food and I traveled to Oxfordtown and TSUN.* Miss M and Mike joined us. There was an EVENT on campus. We were not there for the EVENT, and that’s what I told the security guard who was guarding Visitor Parking Street, but he let us park in EVENT PARKING anyway. As per usual
I still can’t get over that remark from one of our employees. She characterized us– the citizens of the Hospitality State— as “disgusting and shameful.” She’s entitled (isn’t everyone) to her opinion, but I think it’s ill-mannered to talk this way about your employers. I was disappointed that there were so many weeds (not pictured)

Just back from Oxford Town and That School Up North (TSUN). Fun as always except for the New Jersey drivers. Before we left for the Farm, we had a drink upstairs at City Grocery with the TSUN gang. Which reminds me… . My new issue of Garden & Gun came at some point in my
Dogs are fine. Seeds are fine. We have company. Company’s fine! I’ll be back. P.s. Goin’ to Oxford, Mississippi to visit That School Up North tomorrow. Should be fine.
TTUNTKOG (topics I can post about) is where TSUN (Ole Miss) is located. North Mississippi Commentor passes along news that the Oxford (Mississippi) Film Festival lineup has been announced. It’s not really my sort of thing, however, these short documentaries sound interesting: Back in Oxford (Mississippi), Dir. Jordan Berger; A student documentary exploring the underground
Garden & Gun is a very pretty glossy magazine which doesn’t devote nearly enough pages to gardens or guns but does present the Rural South positively. It’s better than Southern Living, which was once good and is now just… . I love this magazine. My wonderful mother-in-law saw an issue at her hairdressers in Georgetown

The Ole Miss Alumni Associationis exploring the idea… …of establishing an “on campus” memorial to honor proud alumni and friends. Throughout our history, Ole Miss
Of all of the pictures I took of them, I liked this posed photo the best. Mr. Big Food (L); Mr. Kant (R) The only missing element was Rocky. UPDATE: A few more photos below the fold The task Starting to pile up Starting to smell like one Big cedar closet! How to dull a
Today we traveled to That School Up North to attend a public lecture on implicit racism. As always, we got a kick out of being in Oxford– that’s Oxford, Mississippi– which I’ve poked good natured fun at several times: Oxford the food desert; Oxford of Oxford Town, Oxford Town; and Oxford that turns a Jersey
From North Mississippi Commentor: Fresh Greens on the marketThe greens are really at their Fall peak right now, and between the various local farmers I found a lot this morning: From Woodson Ridge Farms, I got carrot, radish, beet, and turnip tops, along with arugula. I missed their lettuce. From the Bost Farms at MidTown
As I posted yesterday, there’s an article up at NRO about what a great place The South is. It’s gotten a bit of attention in the part of the World Wide Web that I frequent. Here’s Glenn Reyonlds response: To be honest, we’d rather word didn’t get out. Stay away! In fact, I need to
