So it finally happened! I got tagged!
I was tagged by Xiane.
Tagging means I'll tell you 6 random things about myself, and then in turn, tag 6 others to do the same. Mmmm, so who should I tag?

Completely random things about me, which defy explanation:

1~ I love artificially blue food. The blue raspberry slushy, blue candy, blue tropical drinks, etc.
2~ Fast cars= fun. Pagans for Nascar! Woo-Hoo! If I could drive a race car for a living, I'd do it in a minute. Go, Junior, #8!
3~ I have an impressive collection of stuffed animals.
4~ I can't watch scary movies, because I get too scared and can't sleep. All my friends know this, and will tell me if I can/can't watch a movie. My own in-house ratings system!
5~ I have a cell phone, but have no idea how to use it beyond making calls.
6~ I love to go freshwater fishing. I can catch them, but I can't clean them. I'm too squeamish.
Now, let's see...I'll tag:

North Quabbin Garlic & Arts Festival

On Saturday, I went to the Garlic festival which takes place about a mile from my home. It's my favorite fall festival, here in the Pioneer Valley. The day is a benefit for Seeds of Solidarity Farm's education programs. It's full of farmers selling organic vegetables, crafts vendors and healing arts providers, as well as demonstrations and music! I see quite a few people I know and it's always a fun time.

Here's some photos from the day:

Cheshire Garden makes the most wonderful preserves, mustards and vinegars! I look forward to stopping by the booth every year.

Tom Ricardi, Wildlife Rehabilitator, was there educating the crowd about the magnificent birds of prey!
