Random huntin' and peckin' in the grist of the Shenandoah Valley.

Only one person running for governor is juggling a campaign along with working on the people's business. Senator Creigh Deeds kept his Senate seat to represent his constituents, is on the campaign trail to win the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, and gave up a couple months of fundraising (state law prohibits it of members during the session). All the while he has to deal with sniping from opponents and Republican legislators who don't judge Deed's bills on merit as they rush to deny him legislative victories.
The Roanoke Times has an excellent article on Deeds maintaining legislative focus while in the middle of a statewide campaign.
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.
