The Kalamazoo Nature Center's annual Maple Sugar Festival is this weekend. The event features demonstrations of maple sugaring, from tree to syrup, and maple-centered food. We enjoyed pancakes with maple syrup for breakfast this morning and, later, some maple cotton candy. In the afternoon, they feature sundaes: ice cream with maple syrup.
I teach economics at Kalamazoo College. My wife is also an economist. We were on sabbatical in Europe for the 2014-15 academic year. (Salamanca, Spain, followed by Oxford, UK.) We were in Uruguay for the 2006-7 academic year.
