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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
When people hear tales of India, the images that come to mind are of densely populated cities and spicy foods. I’ve got lots of stories along those lines but think that I’d rather write my first Indian blog entry where my trip to India began. I the far south state of Kerala in a small […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
It’s a chance to relax…. Listen to some good tunes (we heard Will Tucker and God only knows who else)… Grab a bite to eat (we picked the opulence crepe and later shared a funnelcake with my neice)… What I love most is it is Memphis through and through. The vibe you get. The people […]
I was searching for travel stories & photos… a mental search mind you but a search none the less. And to me, my whole life has been a trip. And I think my general progression rates a post…. or maybe I should make it part of the about me page… hmmm… I’ll consider those ideas […]
So, it’s tough deciding where to start with a blog about travel experiences… So I’m rolling the dice and starting with Malaysia. It was the location for my 2006 big vacation. I’ll post about it a good bit no doubt. But here, I wanted to start by talking about rice. I’ve worked in agriculture a long time […]
But my trips have been enriched by connecting with a few people in agriculture and indulging an interest to see something off the beaten path.
