Urban Farming

>> Monday, December 13, 2010


A rooster moved into the neighborhood recently and he takes his job very seriously. I don't begrudge any living thing in doing what comes naturally. But this characters nature begins at 5:15 every morning!

Apparently, he thinks everyone's day should start at this time. All I can say is, he and I have a serious difference of opinion.

Don't get me wrong, I applaud any attempt this society makes in getting back to nature. Growing your own food, very commendable. Raising your own animals, more power to you. Both are deeply rooted in our agrarian heritage and it does my heart and soul good to see people do something so worthwhile. Sure it took hard economic times and a few e coli scares, but hey, the more of us who learn how to feed ourselves the more likely mankind will survive the coming natural disasters we are going to face because no one can agree on how to control greenhouse gases and climate change.

Didn't mean to get so heavy there. Maybe its a lack of sleep.

Now, as far as that self-appointed town crier rooster goes, if only there was some way to reprogram him to sound off at a more reasonable hour, say 7:00.

In the neighborhood I previously lived in, there was a rooster someplace, although it was a very urban neighborhood, and having roosters/chickens was illegal. I think the best way to stop your morning wake-up calls is to find a good rooster recipe...

Oh yeah, I've been working on some possibilities. A 'chicken sunrise egg burrito' sounds promising. lol
