I missed the UC Davis Student Farm okra cook-off! OMG! this is the only link I can find, but I was assured by a farmer at the farmer’s market — where I was buying okra! — that it had happened… last week.
Items of amazement:
1) There is such a thing as an okra cook-off
2) It is in the town where I live
3) I missed it!
Shoot! I know that I would have garnered at least an honorable mention with my truly great fried okra.
I am reading about encyclopedias. As far as I can tell, the book I’m currently reading was last checked out 17 years ago. It was published just over forty years ago.
I love academic libraries. I wonder, sometimes, which of the books I buy will last that long. Not those on programming languages, most likely; I wonder what will.
