Random huntin' and peckin' in the grist of the Shenandoah Valley.
Monday, December 1, 2008
State Senator Jill Holtzman Vogel, a Republican from Warrenton, delivered a son on Wednesday morning at the Fauquier Hospital. A sign of changing times - it is believed she is the first sitting member of the General Assembly to give birth. Mother and son are doing fine. Congratulations to the senator and her husband. More.
Below is my first post on Coarse Cracked Corn. It remains a good description of what's happening. I look forward to your comments, but really don't give a cluck if you agree, disagree, or want to chop the chicken's head off. Most of this pecking around is just me crowing.
Coarse cracked corn is chicken feed - 8% protein, 2.50% fat, and 2.75% fiber. Good stuff made at mills right here in the Shenandoah Valley around 1900. Coarse Cracked Corn, the blog, will be a little like that - pecking around at history, news, and current events in the region. A little grain in, lots of manure out, eggs for breakfast, and a chicken in every pot.
I have no idea where this blog will go or how fast it will get there. Time will tell.
