Diwali celebrations in Kuala Lumpur

My first Diwali

iwali… just saw the word in a friend’s status line and immediately thought about how lucky I’ve been to witness the festival.  It was during my trip to Malaysia in 2006.  While I still want to be in India sometime during Diwali (or Deepavali depending on who’s talking about it), the taste of it in […]

Tweet transcript from the Pollan Panel Discussion 10-15-09 (#pp1009)

Today, Cal Poly hosted a panel discussion on agriculture.  Some of our tweeps were in the audience — @dairy dino and @ilovefarmers – and quite a few were watching through the live stream on the net.  It was really something to see and listen to and the tweet flow was steady.  I wanted to revisit […]

I Love Farmers… the #onthefarm twitter interview

My friend Nick started a twitter hashtag #onthefarm as a way to connect to the farm weekly.  This week he thought he’d take a break and let me do the interview.  I may want to steal the project from him totally now.  🙂  I had so incredibly much fun picking a topic, getting the folks […]

Irrigated vs dryland cotton (Sept 09)

Several weeks ago I was in Texas for a field day & some meetings.  Threw this video together quickly and figured now that I’ve started the blog, I may as well just post it here.  No reason I should expect folks to go find it on YouTube.  Anyway, if you don’t know how important water […]

Crop circles on the High Plains

As I flew into Lubbock this week, I stared out the window.  No matter how many times I see the High Plains, I’m always taken by how different it is than the other places I visit.  In fact, I’d say it’s different than all the places I visit.  I love it.  I was also lovin […]

He’s just a little Speck (a free-range one at that)

Okay, this is less about travel and culture than I anticipate writing about most of the time, but it is connected.  And while others change the names of people to protect the innocent, I think the characters in here are okay with being identified.  : ) Kelly, my best friend in college, took a year […]

Traveling alone and making new friends

My first overseas trip was what some would call a doozy.  While I hate to give away quite so much on my age, the context is sort of important, so in that spirit, I will say the trip was to the Soviet Union — Moscow and Volgograd to be exact.  I know those are Russian […]
