When I say I got out of Washington DC just in time this weekend, it’s not an exaggeration. We left out hotel at 3:15 AM to stand in line at Reagan National for much too long of a time with no caffeine, only to sit on the runway in Nashville when our connecting flight left AFTER they shut the airport down.
They’re calling for snow later today, but currently, it feels pretty good to be back in Missouri!
Regardless of the weather, the Common Ground conference I attended was awesome! Apparently it doesn’t take much to impress this farm girl because I’m pretty sure I told someone how much I liked the light pendants every time we entered the lobby of our hotel.
And despite being my third trip to the Nation’s capital, this is my first White House selfie.
Another first was attending a conference at the Smithsonian National History Museum! That was pretty amazing, except that we were so busy all day I didn’t get to look around anywhere near as much as I would have liked. (We made a three day event fit into two so everyone could catch flights out before Jonas arrived!)
I’m most excited about all the great information I got from this conference. I have SO MANY ideas to share with you here on the blog, plus more information about areas of farming I’m not directly involved in, like dairy and pig farming.
Ask me your toughest food questions– I’m ready to share the answers!
Kelly, In matters of gut health, a prominent online doctor advises against eating pork in all forms because pigs are scavengers and therefore unhealthy for human consumption. I love bacon and sausage and though I can get turkey varieties they aren’t as yummy. What’s the farmer’s answer to this dilemma?
