Library offers a menu of great choices

Charlottesville friends, do you have a Jefferson-Madison Regional Library card? Not only do the new ones look totally hip and not something you'd be embarrassed to have on your keychain, during the month of October, you'll get a 10 percent discount at many area businesses. Here's a short list of the food-related ones; more can be found at the library's website. (The YUM's are places I've checked out at least three times and liked each time.)

Brix Terrace Café, 594 Pantops Center, Charlottesville, VA

The chickens are here!

We got three pullets today: a Black Australorp, a Buff Orfington and a Rhode Island Red. I'll post photos as soon as they relax and get the lay of the land.
