New Year’s Day Traditions

As a Minnesotan with southern roots, New Year’s Day to me means rice, beans and greens. I was raised on the stuff thanks to my Grandma Pollard, an 89 year old Georgia native.

I wasn’t able to make it back home to enjoy my family’s annual feast. Fortunately, I know a guy who whips up a scrumptious bowl of tradition.

Thanks Kirk & Liz.

 

 

Make the New Year Yours

Best wishes to you and yours for an outstanding & healthy 2017.

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
― T.S. Eliot

Go forth and kick some ass, take names, get shit done, try something new, be passionate and make this New Year yours – peacefully and with class of course.

Elegy for the Arctic


Ludovico Einaudi performing what could be described as an elegy for the Arctic as he is surrounded by the ice flow, with the backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier in Norway – sadly beautiful commentary about the impact of climate change on our planet.
