Two-in-one: Pledge to recycle and enter a Crooked Human contest!

Thursday November 15 is America Recycles Day! And CROOKED HUMAN encourages you to reduce, reuse and recycle!

      Visit www.AMERICARECYCLESDAY.ORG and pledge to recycle more. (Click on 'TAKE THE PLEDGE' at the top of the page to take the pledge.) Then 'like' Crooked Human on Facebook ( now through the end of the day on Thursday, Nov. 15.

3    Then send your first and last name to and tell us you took the pledge. You’ll be entered in a drawing now through November 15 to win a free, environmentally-themed gift from Crooked Human.

4    There will be only one winner. Enter now for your chance! However, there will be three runners up who will each win a coupon to be used toward purchasing ANY gift of their liking on after November 15.

Remember - Think twice before throwing something away - it can probably be recycled instead! Paper, newspaper and cardboard without food stains on it and plastic bottles (normally with the numbers one through seven) are recyclable. 

Crooked Human, Inc. is located in Vista, Calif.

On Sept. 21, 2012 I attended Feast Portland. It's an event I first read about in the very popular Bon Appetit magazine. While it was a four-day-long event consisting of sub events celebrating food, wine and chocolate, many of the sub events were expensive.

I was able to attended the unique Chocolate City event. But before going into the white-picket fenced-in area, I just happened to run into Duff Goldman, the Ace of Cakes.

Let's just say it was a wonderful first Friday for me in Portland!
