To any new readers, welcome aboard, folks. Fasten your seat belts.

A few things you should know. First, this isn’t a farm and food blog. If it were, it’d be called Farmilicious or Chick & Biscuit or Butterbean Babe.

I’m a suburban girl who didn’t grow up on a farm and doesn’t live on a farm now. I write all sorts of things. You never know what’s coming next, and neither do I.

This isn’t a devotional, although there are Bible verses that apply to the posts.

This isn’t a music blog either, but I really like music, hence the links to songs. Like a soundtrack for a movie.

Now about yesterday’s post Food Fright. Your response encouraged me to take inventory. Lo and behold, a pattern emerged.

Posts about what’s true and what’s not true about farming and food matter to you.

Since Milk Wars exploded a year ago, I’ve met a lot of cool people. Yesterday reminded me there are stories waiting to be told. Questions begging for answers.

Is my food safe? Are farms ruining the environment? Who’s behind all this? Will there be a Madagascar 4?

So among the posts about the dog, the family, the ups and down, the cosmetics and clothes, the social issues and flashback hits, don’t be surprised to see more about farming and food.

Chick & Biscuit can take a hint.

Let them praise the Lord for His great love
and for the wonderful things He has done for them.
For He satisfies the thirsty
and fills the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:8-9 NLT

Something to Say by Matthew West.

The floor is now open for suggested post topics or anything else you’d like to say, serious or otherwise.

  1. I love a good chick’n biscuit…. Like from Bojangles…. Suddenly wanting breafast!

  2. Way to go, Butterbean Babe. Well deserved traffic! :) I’m dying to know — WILL there be a Madagascar 4??

  3. One topic I have been irked recently here in California is the tendency about higher education.
    Most colleges have a prominent athletic program around here, and a lot of them have been viewed as a prime springboard into NFL and other professional leagues. So schools, to keep their not-always-sustainable (let’s be honest here: usually completely unsustainable) athletics going, have started cutting back on academics. For an example all too close to home for me: Fresno State (CSU Fresno, really) has been having trouble to keep their athletics program funded, so they decided to cut most Math and Science classes, making a lot of degrees impossible or extremely hard to acquire. My college – and a community college at that! – has several competitive teams, but because of the lack of funding, it’s not the athletics where they cut, but the classes offerings, making it extremely hard to earn an Associate’s Degree or credit to transfer to a 4-year college in the normal time of 2 years. I’m taking 2 classes for the summer semester, because it has been decided this is the last summer session for any foreseeable time. Fall classes are subject to cancellation even AFTER the classes have started – and if this way we end up dipping below the minimum required number of units for financial aid, well, we’ll just have to pay it back.
    At any rate, long rant here – I’m interested in your take. Are colleges really supposed to be a springboard into athletics? Only until it’s well affordable, or even afterwards? Is there any good reason why athletics may overshadow academics?

    • Nusy, I’m not sure about CA schools. And I really don’t know much beyond my alma mater. My university UNC-CH has an stellar athletics program (especially men’s basketball) that brings in loads of money to the school. But I’m not aware of them cutting academics to support the athletics. If they did, they’d tarnish their reputation for academics and risk appearing unattractive to prospective students. That said, I’ve been out of the loop for a while. So sad if schools are sacrificing academics for athletics.
