Our diet already included a fair amount (but I hope to increase the quantity) of local foods, which I buy, prepare, and consume as often as possible. The spend and support local movement is important to me. This quick post gives me a chance to endorse a couple of local things (a magazine and cheeses). Distance being a relative thing, just ask any ant or astronaut.... http://www.themainemag.com/a-list/1156-cheese-maine.html.
The characters are coming soon, stay tuned.
