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

Governor Bob McDonnell used a stage provided by Virginia taxpayers, the State Capitol, to deliver the GOP response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union message. In his short talk, the Virginia governor was surrounded by adoring Virginians of all backgrounds who demonstrated a unique talent at reacting to the "Applaud Now!" cards periodically posted by stage hands. Mr. McDonnell appealed to bipartisanship (not found in the room) by often quoting a founding father of the Democratic Party, Thomas Jefferson.
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.
