I'm on my way!
And will ill spend some time considering if I will use the blog to also journal my journey bak to Irland next year, and hopefully the journey there permanently. That includes my hope of sitting the TEG exam next July while I'm there. That's the Teastas Eorpach Gaeilge, the EU fluency cert in Irish. It may moreover my ability to land a job, and it's a point of pride.id have to travel to sit the exam anyway, right now the only U.S. Exam site is New York City. Might as well take it in Ireland, if I can.
No, not the film starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray, although I love that film and Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride steal it as Ma and Pa Kettle and...
A very brief trip to Sunset Valley today, as I'm going to be out of town this week, I'm finally "going to L.A." to see Peter Frampton and Buddy Guy and hopefully my California Girls. Mostly to drop off compost and get my TacoDeli fix but La Cruz Ranch in Elgin was there today, so I am once again nicely stocked with duck (thank you Wheatsville Co-op and Munkebo Farm), chicken and turkey eggs. I also got a pain au chocolate from Laleigh's Patisserie and a palmier from St. Philip, whose brick & mortar should be opening in about three weeks (they have no hard date yet but they said construction and fitting is going well).
I was happy to see Swede Farm back at the market. Their GoFundMe campaign is going well, they've already been able to renew their dairy license and buy six in-milk nannies, so they can still have a limited presence in the markets for some income until the rest of their nannies drop their kids in December.
