Dig into the latest on Belle of Dirt here

Finally! Some news-worthy news!

About Dirt anyway. I wouldn’t recommend watching actual news to anyone right now, except very minimally, unless you want your blood pressure to skyrocket and your stress level to go through the roof. Perhaps I should be opening a dispensary instead of working in…

June last year. Really?

If you’re still following Dirt, then you’ve figured out by now that I’m REALLY TERRIBLE about updating stuff and it’s been almost an entire year AGAIN since I’ve made a post. I’m sorry guys, really I am. But I keep letting my brain pull…

O-Positive tastes great!

It’s that time of year folks, when every flying, creeping, crawling thing seems like it wants to dine on our blood. If you’re a lucky O-Positive blood type like myself, those mosquitoes find you extra tasty- it’s like they’re upgrading from Steak & Shake…
