Olivia Harris of a.m. Fog Shows Off One of The Homestead Creamery Varieties
Afton, Virginia

Most of you know by now that Yvette and I are expecting a child in the fall of this year. Yea, she’s been drinking the milk lots to keep up the calcium! She’s always liked Homestead Creamery milk. You know, it comes in those classic glass bottles, not far off of the kind the milkman used to deliver in simpler times. Most of the stores around here carried it, then one day she walked in and no more! Gone.

Folks this is one popular brand of milk and it’s the best around. No artificial hormones, and about as close to the cow as it comes! Yea, move over happy steer, we’ve got the happy cow now! As soon as Ken and Yvonne Harris up at a.m. Fog heard about this they jumped all over it! And, yep! They have the whole line of Homestead Creamery milk products in the familiar glass bottles, right there in their market on the Nelson-Albemarle County line on Route 151.

Nothing’s quite as good as a cold glass of milk from one of those chilled bottles!

And now you can get Homestead Creamery milk just up the road at a.m. Fog. along with all of your vegetables, plants and nursery needs to boot!

You can always visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call ’em at 540-456-7100

A quick thanks to our trusty Ann Strober for this weekend’s most interesting weather pic! A face only a mother could love, it is! I am not sure, but I think Ann may have shot this in the small fish pond down at The Dogwood in Nellysford.
If it wasn’t there, it’s a close match! As always, thanks for the great pics you send our way Ann!

You might want to find some water to be in this weekend. It’s going to be hot and muggy for the next several days and unfortunately, the earlier forecast of rain has vanished for much of the extended period. There is still a chance a weak front will get in here next week, but chances are less than previously thought. Right now it looks like Sunday Monday or Tuesday are the better days for rain in the late afternoon. As always, any day with hot and muggy weather can spur an afternoon or even thunderstorm, but nothing organized at this point.

Tropical Storm Christobal.

Tropical Storm Christobal animated radar image.

Invest #94 possible computer projections for the next several days.

Continue to watch a couple of low pressure areas out in the North Atlantic. Invest 96 Now Tropical Storm Christobal off of the SE U.S. Coast and Invest 94 in the Caribbean. You can see the paths of these, and if they become a factor we’ll talk more about it. Looks like 96 #3 will be to our east at this point as the low works up the eastern seaboard.

jan smith 29 dances
Today’s cut is James River from her CD 29 Dances.

Louisville, Kentucky native Jan Smith writes songs rooted in vibrant imagery and sincere, stark emotion. The artists whose music she grew up with — Merle Haggard, Nina Simone, and Townes Van Zant among many others – influence her work, as does the traditional bluegrass music of her new home in the mountains of central Virginia.

On April 4, 2006, Landslide Records released “29 Dances,” produced in Nashville by Bil VornDick (Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley). The record features Johnny Hiland, Byron House (Sam Bush, Nickel Creek), Pat McInerney (Nanci Griffith), Randy Kohrs, David Talbot (the Grascals), Mark Fain (Ricky Skaggs), Robert Bowlin (Bill Monroe), Patty Mitchell, and Smith’s partner, Jeff Vogelgesang.
