A nice BlogMeet today -- Kerry, The Jack, Shermlock Shomes and Mrs. Shomes and Don. It was warm enough to be outside (if you dressed for it) and we enjoyed fine beer (coffee for me, thanks), frites, steak and pork crepes.
Much fun talk ensued, ranging from prepping to the changes in CPR procedures to the rise of innumeracy and illiteracy to fiction to firearms and plenty more, including Kerry's Adventures In Chicken-Keeping. (Very productive thus far -- a half-dozen hens produce a bit more eggs than his family can use. ...And chicken stew later, perhaps.)
It was warm enough for me to ride my scooter. My dear old brown "Firefly-ish" jacket needs much TLC; went to look for another online and it appears Icon stopped making them...except in leather. Ooooo, sign me up for the "red" (brown) one, the very first time I have saved up the price. This may not be soon.
