Not Today

Woke up this morning around 5 a.m. in our car expecting news of the Sheriff's arrival but alas no dice. No one showed up to evict us and by 9 a.m. we had about 7 media folks here warming up with breakfast and coffee while prepping for Alicia Silverstone's visit. Things are looking good for today.

I met some of our legal observers from the National Lawyers Guild. All are lawyers or current law students who came here to checkout the farm and also provide support in the event of a police raid as legal witnesses. They've got these great neon green hats that stick out like Exxon-Mobil at a Greenpeace meeting: super easy to find in a chaotic crowd. Theresa, Patrick and Bob all came this morning with a few other volunteers expecting some action, but instead were treated to a breakfast of fresh veggies, eggs, beans and fruit all from the farm. I learned some interesting things about the NLG and were impressed that about 8 of them were on hand this morning. They'll be around for the duration. Thanks folks!
