Coming soon, Soda Pop Culture!


By Shawn Robare

Usually around this time of year I can’t help but slip into a post holiday internet coma, not unlike the hibernation schedule of many rodents, large hairy mammals, and marsupials, just with a lot less sleep-induced burning of fat, and a lot more avoiding the computer.  Seems like I’ve been shaken awake this year though and will probably start posting on a more regular schedule.  So I wanted to take a second and announce a new column I’ve been preparing, Soda Pop Culture.  Hopefully it’ll be taking an interesting look at the plethora of fine, fizzy, sometimes caffeinated, sometimes fruity beverages that have been keeping this country happy and alert for over a hundred years, not to mention contributing to the population’s ill health and unfortunate rise in diabetics.  Sound like fun?  I hope so.  Since Peel Here has been winding down for awhile, I thought it would be nice to switch gears a and slip away form ephemera for awhile and get back to some of the roots of this site.

I’ll also be making a lot of noise about one of the projects I’m working on for this year that I’’m really excited about, the 1st Up! Fair coming November 19th and 20th, at the Carnegie Center for Literacy & Learning in Lexington, KY.  Heck, it even got me excited enough to put pencil & ink to paper for the first time in over a year (by designing and drawing this banner…

Anyway, consider this bear nudged.
