Today's Reality Check: Eating Dirt

"Dirt wafers:
A woman makes "cookies" out of mud to sell in the Cite Soleil neighborhood of Port-au-Prince. The pies, made of dirt, salt and vegetable shortening, were already one of very few options for the poorest in Haiti even before the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake."

Vay Kay

Yeah, yeah, I've been absent for a bit. Been busy with stuff: working on the house (more later), went to the Bay Area to visit for several days, adopted a dog (much more later). Stuff like that. It's not that I haven't missed you bloggy, I've just been taking a break from you and my business and all. I got an order today so I guess I've got to get back to it. Reworking my Etsy shop and business, prepping for the Saturday Market's March opening, getting my taxes/paperwork in order, house house house stuff, etc, etc. And, of course, walking the dog.
