For the past month, I’ve been working on a project multiple people have referred to as “a perfect fit.” It’s basically what I was made for.
An old farmhouse, goats with an abundance of personality, modern French decor, and a 7-course gourmet meal. Welcome to Zingerman’s Cornman Farms.
It’s Feudal Japan, on a bright May morning. The cherry blossoms and tulips are making way for draperies of wisteria. All around, the beat of the Taiko drums reverberates through the air. In the distance, there come the sounds of kiai, and the crash of bamboo striking bamboo, threatening to drown out the shouts.

Didja know October is “Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month?” Did you also know I love animals?

I celebrated Independence Day in “Small-Town USA.” To be specific, I was in Port Austin, Michigan. Imagine a patriotic lovechild between a state fair and the establishing sequence for a Jerry Bruckheimer movie.

There have been studies suggesting that people with symmetrical faces are generally perceived to be more attractive than those without. It’s also commonly accepted that most people have some form or another of asymmetry. Either an ear or an eye is lower on one side, or perhaps you’re prone to the “crooked smile” and have a few extra wrinkles on that side.
If you live in Michigan, you probably know that Sleeping Bear was voted “The Most Beautiful Place in America.” After all, we do the “state pride” thing right, so of course you knew that.
