Last night was Shellfish Night. We try to eat shellfish or organ meats at least once a week because they are so chock-full of vitamins. Seriously, folks, they put veggies to shame.

Kate is only 18 months old now and she’s already attracting interest from suitors. This photo was taken at the farmer’s market last Sunday.

She played with her friends while I lifted weights, rode the exercise bike, and read the first chapter of Senator Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope”. I was craving shellfish for dinner […]
