Bits n' Bytes

Random things I want to tell you about, circa TODAY:

Magic Kombucha. Brewed right here in Olympia by the fabulous Rachel Carns, dispensed in many different libation and beverage forms at QB, and available for purchase at the Olympia Food Co-op. Truly, it is 'The Champagne of Kombuchas'. Bonus: If you live in Olympia, and are interested in saving the 24 hour free-flowing Artesian Well (from which this tasty Kombucha is born), i.e. the dispensary of delicious water that fell as rain in nearby foothills over 2000 years ago, join Rachel and myself at the Downtown Library this Saturday, January 17th, 2:30 to 4:30 pm!


And look what showed up at the door last night! Justin with a headwound. Don't worry, it's just a theatrical re-enactment. He's taking a class that certifies him as a 'Wilderness First Responder', sort-of a mountain medic. Each day the students take turns role playing possible trauma situations.. this is 'Man Falls Out Of Tree While Foraging For Wild Mushrooms'. Not Kidding. Then J.T. was all 'And I have internal bleeding, too!'
