Dig It

This is the opening scene from the YouTube trailer advertising the documentary, Dig It. Not sure when it will be released, but I am very interested in seeing the final product.  The film focuses on what happens when citizens, musicians, organizations, corporations, and government come together as one to solve environmental problems in their communities.

Furry Knees

I swear there is an area, just to the side of my left knee, that hasn’t seen skin growth in well over 3 decades.  Somehow, I manage to nick the exact same spot every single time I shave my legs.  To stop the bleeding, I wad up a piece of tissue, spit on it and…
