The lovely Oprah Winfrey made her public debut yesterday, as the Resident Chicken at Lac Courte Orielles Community Sustainability Fair. I took a couple of hours mid-day to talk about keeping chickens in the backyard (something I know a little about). She was very accommodating to her adoring public, in particular two young boys who were very keen to challenge her to staring contests. I can't tell you who won, but I'm sure Oprah would insist she remains the champion regardless of any challengers. As she is the Queen of the Flock, who am I to argue with royalty?
