    ok, so i was being sarcastic about the food frisbee (since sarcasm seems to be rampant on this site). sorry my tone didn’t come across like that. maybe i should have used an emoticon, like this one ;)
    I am just trying to think aloud about an issue, maybe try to collaborate on a solution. but I guess I chose the wrong venue.

    The art fest had 2 trash bins, a green one and a blue one to separate but they were both full of both types of trash. Yes, having compostables is easier over all. And the bins need to be better marked. Comfest does a good job of marking their bins. Just a thought that if more people would bring their own, that would be one less plate for everyone who did it. I’m sorry if you feel like this a drum circle thing. All that does is simulate prayer which is basically sitting there thinking about something. I’d rather take action.
    I’m going to do my own experiment and take my own plate to comfest and see if any of the vendors have issues with it. If anything they can save a penny or two on the plate/cup i won’t use.

    What if the folks at comfest sold frisbees that could be turned over and used as re-usable plates? and everyone who used one would get a discount? But then at the en of the fest there’d be tons of frisbees to be picked up. I’ve worked on the clean up crew enough to know how many of the cups people throw away.

    oh well, just a thought going thru my head and was wondering what others thought.

    I just got home from a long day in Goodale Park. Had to drive coz I don’t live anywhere near a bus stop and knew I’d probably be working late volunteering. This was my first try at clean up. The kids on the hill are litter bugs for sure! Got to wet my whistle with summer teeth, yum, eat a broccoli burger from Whole World, hear a couple pretty good bands on the Gazebo state and saw a guy do his best to channel Jimi Hendrix on the Bozo stage. I wasn’t a fan of the folks singing, if that’s what you’d call it, songs and ranting against SB 5, but hey, that passion is one of the things I love about ComFest plus, it gave me time to get some great stir fried veggies and another beer. Didn’t see too many boobies but a ton of young chicks with hula hoops, mostly carrying them around. Can’t wait for tomorrow. I’m thinking about a fish boat. and maybe more beer….

    There is a medical education center at Doctors that opened late last year. Wonder if it’ll be associated with it. Hope so, the west side is under served as far as health care goes.

    Hi. Ive posted here a few times over the last few yrs. I enjoy this site for the latest news on the goings ons about town. I get a lot of good ideas on things to do here.
    Me=registered nurse, I own a small business renting a cabin and a yurt in the Hocking Hills region. I live with a marvelous man, 3 dogs and 4 cats, plus a tank full of fish. I also help run a meet up group for hikers called HikeOhio. Next month I’ll be going back to school to get my bachelors in nursing.
    Tree hugging dirt worshipping bleeding heart liberal best describes me.

    wondered why i never got my delivery before christmas. or a reply to my email asking, then I saw their website.
    as an almost weekly customer, a simple email stating i wouldn’t get my order for the holiday would have been nice.
    too bad; i liked their service and was happy with the produce. we’ll see how Green Bean is. anyone here use Green Bean? thots?

    I have that app on my iPhone. My Dogs barely respond to it other than a curious look and cocked heads.
    I have the same problem and I’m about to call the humane society coz the dogs sleep in a shed w/ straw in it. I’ve been feeding her cats and even set up a a temporary shelter for them. Ive already had to call the cops on them for domestic violence. if they knew I called about their dogs, I don’t know how they’d react. I’d be interested to know if anyone else has had experience with calling the humane society.

    *ahem*

    ;-)

    So, if I’m reading the thread correctly, only one person had mentioned contacting the humane society, and just CAHS. I specifically asked if “anyone else” had experience and there is more than one humane society around. I thought that I would solicit other responses and get advice before calling the cops.

    After getting my produce delivered for the last 4 weeks, I must say I’m pleased with the service and quality. The small is plenty for 2 people. And I just love getting my Snowville Creamery Milk so I don’t have to drive out of my way to get it. Anyone have any problems or other comments? just curious.

    I dated a guy once from Bald Knob, Arkansas. Locals there were called Baldknobbers. That always made me laugh.

    cruising for a bruising = stop it or I’ll beat your ass

    Mom used to say “god looks out for hillbillies and idiots so we should have double coverage”.
    Proud of my hillbilly roots. Taught me many skills I carry with me today like canning veggies, planting gardens, feeling empathy for my city slicker cousins who were scared of our woods at night. Call me a hillbilly and I’ll smile and say thanks.

    I’ve been tossing the vegan option around for a few years. I’m lacto-ovo w/ an occasional fish but have recently sworn off fish. I guess this is just a gradual process that takes time. It seriously was easier to quit smoking than trying to quit dairy. I’m hoping by choosing Snowville Creamery and locally raised free range eggs I can at least be a bit more humane. My biggest reason for choosing vegetarian was due to the impact on the environment and the abhorrent conditions where factory farmed animals are raised. I still struggle w/ the morality of “no animal product” lifestyles. Why is it not okay to drink milk if the cows are treated fairly and humanely? Why not eat eggs if the chickens can run around the farmyard, eat bugs and have a cozy, safe place to sleep at night? I guess growing up on a farm has given me a skewed perception of the use of animals for the human race. Is there any race, ethnic group or race that totally stays away from animal products? I don’t know for sure but I think not. I think its impossible for anyone else but developed countries becuase we have the resources to make that choice. I’m only asking because I do struggle with this issue all the time. It takes a huge amount of time to plan menus on a vegan diet without all the processed crap. I’d rather eat good organic, “happy cow” cheese than the fake cheese with an ingredient list as long as your arm.
    Just a few thoughts. Would be interested in how others think about this.

    a street near me is Cherry Lane. The ‘hood has cement columns about 3 feet high w/ the street names painted on them. Looks like stencils and spray paint. Anyway, Cherry Lane is spelled “Cheery Lane” on one of the columns. That always makes me smile. :)
