Can you help us find this puppy?
Last time I appealed to the good people of Tumblr, we found a home for an abandoned cat. Now, let&#8217;s see if we can help Peanut find his home.
Peanut belongs to my wife&#8217;s coworker, Kisha, who lost her home in Superstorm Sandy. Her family has been living in a FEMA trailer, but the dog was staying with friends. Last weekend, the dog got loose and is now missing.
Please pass this around to anybody you know in the Far Rockaway area, or anybody that knows anybody out there, or spends time out there, or just understands that a dog is often as much a part of your family as all the humans.
Thanks!

Listen here//Buy here//Feel good here

Betcha By Golly Wow

Some of the best music paired with some of the corniest lyrics, so I give you only the former.

Tomorrow is World Food Day, and to celebrate, why not have a Grow Dinner? What is that? Well, many of you probably eat this way already, and many of you are probably pretty close to doing it whenever you prepare your own meals.
This year my wife Jill has been a co-lead for the Oxfam Action Corps NYC, and one of her goals for October is to have 1,000 Grow Dinners around the country. I&#8217;m asking you to participate and help her reach that goal.
Grow Dinners do not have to be parties, it can be you and your spouse, or roommates, or even a meal for one (with leftovers for later in the week!). All you have to do is follow these 5 principles:
Reduce Waste - Save leftovers (or make less food), compost, recycle, you know what this means.
Support Small Scale Food Producers - Use food that is fair trade, such as grains produced by small scale farms in developing countries, or from your local farmer&#8217;s market, such as produce from local small scale farms.
Cook Smart - For example, save water and energy by using lids when boiling water and turning down the heat as soon as it boils.
Buy Seasonally - Buying produce that&#8217;s in season means it wasn&#8217;t shipped from a different hemisphere!
Eat Less Meat and Dairy - You don&#8217;t have to eat a vegetarian meal (though I would encourage it), but meat doesn&#8217;t have to be the centerpiece of the meal. Eating less meat reduces your carbon footprint.
In order for us to count the meal as a Grow Dinner, take a picture of your meal and send it us along with your email and the names (and if possible, emails) of everyone that participated. You can simply send me a Facebook message. Yes, you will be added to the Oxfam America email list, but like any well managed email list, you won&#8217;t receive too many emails and you can unsubscribe at any time. Or, stick around and learn some things.
I also encourage you to discuss these five principles with the everyone at the table to help spread the word. Consider using some of the resources linked below to print out the five principles. Make sure everybody understands that what they are eating is helping make a difference in the fight for food justice. It&#8217;s simple, everyday choices like these that, when made by more and more people, can truly bring about positive change.
Here&#8217;s Jill&#8217;s blog post for more info:

Know anybody in or around NYC that wants to adopt an adult cat? Even if you don&#8217;t, can you share this post?
Tuesday night I came home from a gig, and as I usually have to do late at night, parked about 10 blocks from home. On the way to my apartment, this cat walked right out in front of me, meowing, and then proceeded to walk under my legs and followed me about 6 blocks home.
He was very, very skinny, and based on his behavior I figured somebody had thrown him out and he wasn&#8217;t very good at catching his own food. My wife brought some food down, and after some debating, we brought him inside.
Yesterday I took him to the vet, and he tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He&#8217;s already neutered, and the vet estimates he&#8217;s 4 or 5 years old. To be safe, he also got a de-wormer and I have another dose on hand which he&#8217;ll need in 2 weeks. Other than being underweight, he&#8217;s a perfectly healthy cat and ready to be adopted.
If you, or anybody you know, is thinking about adopting a cat, please send them my way (cameron[at]cameronmizell.com). He&#8217;s an awesome cat. We&#8217;ll probably foster him until he finds a home, but ultimately we cannot keep him. We already have 3 cats!

"Sugar Baby (Banjo Version)" Sam Amidon and Bill Frisell (Live at LPR)

Sam and Bill played this song twice in the same show, but the two versions were completely different. This was the first version they performed. The other was similar to the album version. I posted that video yesterday.
