Help Make Our World a Better Place and Have Fun, Too.

We can do it in hundreds of ways, large and small.  It can be as simple as making someone smile or as complex as rooting out bureaucratic corruption and waste.

At Skagit Leeks you will be entertained and enlightened.  You might even laugh out loud.

The people who are crazy enough
to think they can change the world
are the ones who do.

From Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson

Skagit Valley is my amazing home, filled with varied, scenic natural resources, great food, rich fertile fields (with the same climate as Holland) where flowers, berries, fruit, vegetables ... and yes, leeks ... are grown, along with the production of milk, cheese, and organic meat.

We're on the shores of Puget Sound where bays are filled with oysters, clams and Dungeness Crab; the channels are familiar routes for pods of Orca whales, and filled with a variety of fish and shrimp.  Our valley is criss-crossed with rivers and streams - at times swollen with salmon surviving hungry eagles and fishermen and fighting their way to special spawning grounds.

We'll have many topics to examine:  the major and the mundane; relevant and provocative, food tips and recipes, books and movies and more.  Dialogue is welcome; labels and rants are not. 

Please join me here every Monday morning.

  1. I may not be here every Monday morning, but I will be here!

  2. I like words much more than soup. Great start!

  3. I'm looking forward to visiting every Monday!

  4. I will be here every Monday. Times may vary. First however, I shall like to move across the country and be your neighbor. I have always loved WA State and where you live sounds like utopia. Oh and I know I would have good bunny sitters! hee,hee,hee.

  5. Congrats on the launch, BL/LOS! Can you see the orcas?

  6. Looking forward to the leeks. I hope to keep up with my blog reading and commenting (and posting!!). You give me something to look forward to on Monday mornings.

    Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving.
