    Well done Sam. After a month of daily blog does this mean you will be taking a break?
    BTW did you get my emails!

    Great job Sam, you made it look easy! Will you be reflecting on the cost of going local? Did you find it to be more or less expensive?

    Hi Sam,
    I stumbled onto your blog for the first time today and I'm enjoying catching up. Thanks in particular for sharing details on your eating local plans... you show not only that it can be done, but that you don't need to be completely absolutist about it (particularly regarding chocolate.... one shudders to think what someone who lives in Hershey, PA would do for their chocolate if forced to eat local only).

    Looking forward to your concluding thoughts now that the month is over!
