Lynn and I went up to Sharon Springs, NY last weekend to see the Victorian Christmas Celebration spearheaded by Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell AKA "The Beakman Boys" whose experiment in promoting forward thinking with regard to  agricultural arts and emphasis on local craftsmanship has yielded a book, The Bucolic Plague, an account of their transition from slick Manhattanites to upstate NY resourcful types as well as a TV show on the Planet Green channel.

We had a great time, the guys were very nice and cordial to all participants.  The cold tempatures helped everyone get in the mood and the generous pouring at the nearby American Hotel took care of the cold and helped everyone get into the spirit.
