joycotting in portland maine

Portland Greendrinks hosted their first joycott at the Public Market House this past Sunday. Their mission? “Instead of boycotting the bad, joycott the good.” And joycott we did.

The Public Market House, while usually busy on a day-to-day lunch visit, was completely bursting at the seams on Sunday! Which was exciting to see, knowing that 51% of the day’s profits will be invested in improving the building’s energy efficiency. Well done! I wonder where the next joycott will be…

Oh, and Happy VDay/Valentine’s Day!

What a weekend. Camping with hilarious company, sampling fresh Rhode Island seafood, soaking in the ocean, and sipping Del’s lemonade while listening to this:

sweet sounds

A staple of the Pun Pun soundtrack sung by my dear dear friend Brodie and her band-mate Grahame from Maiden Lane. If you click play then I don’t need to tell you, but girl can siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing.

Check out her website with links to all her musical projects here.

My favorite is Brodie + David.

Ok one more video… I have to. They’re too good.

These two, these two. Oh I miss you!

Now Graham and I are off to Portland Maine for the weekend:) Happy Friday!
