Odds and Ends - MS 60, Slacker Manager

Erik the Swede put me on to this site, Slacker Manager. It's a useful enough source of managerial reading material that it's in my links list. I also added a link for the weather in Eagan. It's so specific it tells me the inside temperature. Now I have to look around the house for the weather station.

I am in the MS 60 this year. Not the 150. I decided to go for a single day event rather than the two day abandon the family for the weekend version, particularly as I'm running away to RAGBRAI for a week. A friend donated $50 in my name, so I at least meet the minimum, but I encourage people to donate anyway. You can find the Wild West Outlaws team here, and we're a long ways from our target. If you don't feel like donating to me, try donating to Ming Tan or Kirat Sekhon - both of them need to meet their $50 minimum.

Stuff About Minneapolis has an article on Community Agriculture with a list of Minneapolis CSAs via Heavy Table. MNSpeak/Secrets of the City has an open post up on CSAs as well. I think we'll be doing this in my family this year.

There's a new Dora! If you're protesting, you have a problem.

Secrets of the City also posted a link to this commentary designed to piss off cyclists. The comments are the good part.

Yes, we split a share with friends of the May Farm CSA that has good variety (they give you eggs if that weeks' stock is low), herbs AND they focus on educating immigrant farmers.
