Grateful Dating is about to reach the 10th year anniversary of her blog. Excerpt:

So much has changed, yet so little has changed. I live in the same city, the same house, I’m single. I almost put “still single” but that’s not quite right–I’ve been single, unsingle, dating, etc. I went to live in France. I bought some new bicycles. I bought a brand new car. I made some friends and lost a couple…

Climate change threatens to raise global temps 5F by the end of this century. It will deliver disease, water and food shortages, floods and extreme weather, species extinctions, ocean acidification and crumbling political systems. Greater Greater Washington argues for an increase in efforts to create sustainable cities. But this is not a case where every little bit helps. This is a case where every little bit won’t be enough. Massive change is needed.

So you want to leave DC and realize your dreams of living on a farm. Go for it. You can still pen a “dating blog” regardless of where you live. That’s what the Slow Cook did, and in his latest update he tells the story of Tigger, the boy goat, in search of love.
