The day started with the usual rummaging through hard drives and files. Then, I got a call-back from one of the contacts here and we set up to meet in the late morning, to discuss the Master Recyclers program, hosted through the Oregon State University Extension, coordinated by Rhianna Simes. After that, I went to Ashland for a 3:30 meeting, which I later saw I had noted as a 3:00! Ooops! So, I called and apologized profusely, only to find out that it was supposed to happen on Tuesday. . . heavy sigh of relief! All's well that ends well!

I went to the fair today. . . to see how the trash gets handled at probably one of the most forward-thinking fairs in America! The Jackson County Fair, and the Master Recycler Program.
