A poem, by Ogden Nash

Celery, raw,
Develops the jaw,
But celery stewed,
Is more quickly chewed.

Not much news this week. What can I say, it's December. "Holiday-season" December. There may or may not be a little something something going on at the Renegade Market in the next couple of weeks. I don't know, maybe you should check it out, make sure nothing's being missed. You know, just to be safe... And maybe give a few vendors a look while you're here.
