I have resisted blogging for some time now, but have finally jumped in. I have no guarantees that I will be faithful to this communication medium but I will give it a try. All I hope is that I will be able to articlulate things that get people thinking. Coming up with a name for my blog was a challenge. It came down to two choices: Cole-slaw (shreded cabbage..."Cole" means cabbage) or Charred-Cole. Since Coleslaw has a more organic connotation I went that way.
