Two recent tomes

Just wanted to let you in on a couple of recent reads that we enjoyed.

The first:

Everything I want to do is illegal

by Joel Salatin

If have seen the movie "Food, Inc", perhaps you will recall the organic farm, Polyface Farms, highlighted in the movie.

The owner/operator of the farm wrote this book to bring to light his struggles with the bureaucracy of the food establishment and some of the reasons why locally grown natural food can be so expensive and difficult to get.

Some of his stories are downright absurd examples that, if someone has not dealt with government bureaucracy, they would have a hard time believing these things go on. Included in the stories of his struggles is how, even though his methods have been consistently shown to be more sanitary, he has been repeatedly harangued for not having the "proper" facilities.

If you are at all interested in what you eat, check out some of his material. We are now diving into his latest book, Folks, this ain't normal.

A little lighter reading Dude Perfect's Cory Cotton wrote Go Big.

Go big is the story of Dude Perfect and the steps to take your passions and dreams to the next level.

If you don't know about Dude Perfect, they are some college guys that shot some trick basketball shots in their yard, filmed it, put it on youtube and turned it into a dream job. The book talks about that journey and how you too can do some, well...BIG.

Take the time to find out more about them, put their game app on your iphone.....or just watch some of their shots. Here is their original video:
