Last weekend before semester starts
Title says it all but could also be titled: last weekend before the craziness starts. I'm looking forward to teaching Cultural Anthropology and Minority groups, but needed one last fling with the family before the "real" work starts. Se we went to visit Neil & Erica in Grand Rapids and then back out to Saugatuck and Lake Michigan for a day. I caught some interesting bird pics (below) and invite you to vote on YOUR favorite. (1)"Drunk Bird Walking" (2)"podiatric self-diagnosis" (3)"I dare ya..." or (4)"hop-d-wash"
Assistant Professor of Communication Arts at The Defiance College in Defiance, Ohio. My academic background is in English literary studies and history and I hold a Ph.D. in American Culture Studies from Bowling Green State University. I am in the process of converting my doctoral dissertation *Foods That Matter: Constructing Place and Community at Food Festivals in Northwest Ohio* into a book manuscript. *Foods That Matter* examines the cultural practices surrounding foods presented at food festivals in Northwest Ohio. Finally, I am the father of two daughters who reluctantly accompany my wife, Michelle, and me on our culinary travels—you come too.
