This sounds like me. I eat birds, fish, and bacon.

I found your blog because of a comment you left on Making Our Way. I was intrigued by the fact that you have a stay-at-home-dad at your house. My partner works half time and he's home with our son the rest of the time. Not too many of us out there, esp in the PF blogging world.

BTW, you have great taste in books. I love all the books you listed in your Blogger profile.

Welcome to the blogosphere! I look forward to reading more of your stuff.
