It took most of the day to get a personal interview with Willie but I got ‘er done. Ask NBB Board member Greg Anderson how difficult it was. Let’s just say they weren’t letting the media do one-on-one’s but where there’s a will there’s an agriblogger.
This post is just to follow up my last one since it’s now the day after the Emily Richards Concert here at the National Biodiesel Conference.
It’s “meet the stars” week here in San Diego. I wasn’t real familiar with Emily Richards until today. But I’m a fan. Tonight we get to see a live show. Emily is a singer/songwriter that vocally supports biodiesel. If you want to see what she looks like on a motorcycle you’ll have to visit the Biodiesel Conference Blog.
I don’t think I’ve ever posted as much multi-media content as I have from this National Biodiesel Conference. I know it’s making my posting light here on AgWired but that will change after I’m back Friday. I thought you might enjoy some of it here though.
I know posting has been a little light here today but you can visit the Biodiesel Conference Blog if you want to see what I’ve been up to. For example, my buddy Luke Perry here did a press conference just a little while ago to publicly support this renewable fuel effort. Daryl Hannah jumped into the press conference a little late but you can hear her too.
Here’s a ZimmCast that’s a little different. The first star to support biodiesel is Daryl Hannah.
I think this will be my last post from the Cattle Industry Convention. To sort of bring it full circle I interviewed the new Chairman of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, Jay O’Brien, from Amarillo, TX. The gavel was passed to him this morning.
He’s being double-teamed here by Randy Koenen and Greg Akagi. He’s also the incoming President of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. He’s Mike John and all of us in Missouri are proud of him. I won’t be able to attend his acceptance speech tomorrow afternoon so I interviewed him myself.
Regular readers know I’m a pretty big food fan and especially of beef. After seeing the Beef Backer Award winners presented with their awards this morning I’m looking forward to my next trip to Iowa so I can stop in at Trostel’s Greenbriar in Johnston.
They brought me a picture and audio and I’m happy to let you know what the folks at AgriTalk are doing here at the Cattle Industry Convention. Mike Adams is broadcasting live each morning from here in the convention center in Denver.
