A music friend of mine runs a local bakery.  Combining two of his favorite things (baking and biking), Nate delivers FRESH BAKED BREAD EVERY WEEK by bicycle (rain, snow or shine).  He calls his business Brake Bread.  His wife is a ELCA Lutheran Pastor (think that had something to do with the name).  laugh

As a musician, Nate has always loved Pete Seeger and the good causes he represented.  

Given the current political/societal unrest, on this, the 3rd Anniversary of Pete's passing, Nate decide to dedicate his bread making oven to a favorite quote by Pete ("this machine surrounds hate and forces it to surrender" - see pic!).  

Nate's banjo-playing dad (Claude) was in to celebrate the event... as were several other banjo-playing musicians (Nate offered free coffee to anyone carrying a banjo case).  I'd never seen so many dusty cases before.  

Too much coffee and too many banjos.  Fast, loud fun.  A good time was had.  laugh

Craig, thank you for sharing this story. As a retired ELCA pastor I always am interested in what our spouses do. This is very interesting and inspiring. I wish I could have been there.

That looked fun. I'll drop in next time I'm pedalling by.

I wish!

(Hey, I just noticed that was my 500th post. So pleased it was in appreciation of a tiny local event that helps maintain my faith that good people still make good things happen in America. As if, being a long time fan of Craig's work, I needed reminding of that.)

People are always asking, "what can a somebody like me with no power do to make the world better?"

This video is a great example. Support your locally owned businesses and gently persuade others to do so.

The issues of Food Security and Buying Local are deeply intertwined...as they should be. I'm fortunate to live in a rural area where I can buy clean meat directly from farms and fruit from a local orchard. (We grow most of our vegetables).

And you do not need to live in a rural area like we do. We played at the Farmers Market up in Ferguson(yes, that Ferguson) last summer and directly saw the impact local farmers can make in a big city Food Desert.

Keep them in business. The odds are against them. And with subsidies going to big-biz like Walmart, the little guy is actually being taxed TO PUT HIMSELF OUT OF BUSINESS.

Thanks Craig. A nice way to remember Pete and recognize the Good Things ordinary people do to make the world a better place.

Mmmmmm, fresh bread and coffee -- warms the hands, heart, and tummy, and the banjo warms the ears.
