Twofer Tuesday - Markets and Ringo

Two big news stories this past week sorta flew below the radar.  

First, the County's Farmers Markets are once again back in business every Saturday:

And the second big news story of the past week saw Ringo reveal that Come Together is his favorite Beatles tune.  Check him out here in this video below at the 2:00 mark discussing how he, as a lefthander playing a right handed drum set, came up with the "reverse tom-tom" playing style on the song.  (Clueless about drums, I never knew that there were left handed and right handed drum sets.  In my defense though, I was aware that we do have Farmers Market here in the County.)

It does lead me to wonder if maybe I should start stocking right handed and left handed 10 ouncers at Buzzy's and see if anyone can tell the difference.
