1st Presentation on New Book Small Homes


40-50 people showed up for my talk/slide show Wednesday night at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais. I'm amazed anyone came, it was so cold out. Kindred spirits fer shure.

Us born-and-bred coastal Caifornians are wimps when it comes to weather like this. It was minus 4 degrees F this morning. Sometimes it gets down to -20F, and if the wind is blowing, -40 wind chill factor. When you step outside, the cold attacks you, it's all you can think of.

"Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. …"


Luckily, I get a 4-wheel drive truck; driving to #Duluth on icy highway not exactly in my skill zone. Getting passed by 18-wheelers going 65 mph. Am now in #grandmarais, doing presentation on new book Small Homes tonight, 7 pm at #northhousefolkschool in Grand Marais. This pic on way into town from Pincushion Trails Inn this am. 13 degrees. It gets down to -20 here, and that's not with wind chill...

Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire, 
Some say in ice. 
From what I’ve tasted of desire 
I hold with those who favor fire. 
But if it had to perish twice, 
I think I know enough of hate 
To say that for destruction ice 
Is also great 
And would suffice.

Tiny Breakfast Restaurant in Minneapolis


This place is 10' wide, set in between 2 larger buildings. There are 14 stools at the counter. Good food, good vibes. I met my new friend Todd there this snowy cold morning.

Hunting, Foraging, Gardening, Cooking Wild Foods - Hank Shaw via Kirk Lombard

I found this great website via Kirk Lombard, the Sea Forager:

HI THERE!
My name is Hank Shaw.

"I write. I cook. I fish, dig earth, forage, ferment things, brew beer, raise plants, live for food and chase God’s creatures. I drink Scotch or Bud, eat burgers or dine on caviar, depending on my mood or what day of the week it happens to be. I spend my days thinking about new ways to cook and eat anything that walks, flies, swims, crawls, skitters, jumps – or grows. This is my story."
