Somtimes I Get A Useful Catalog In The Mail

You could miss this place if you were not paying attention. It is just off I5 in Central Point, OR. That is just north of Medford. We stop here on the way to Ashland for the plays, to pick up some really good cheese.

Of course, when you have grown up in Wisconsin you live with this addiction forever. Once a cheesehead always a cheesehead. Their biggest sellers are some fantastic blue cheeses, one they call Oregonzola, sort of self-explanatory, another called Crater Lake Blue. They look good even in the pictures to the left.

The catalog advertised a 5# wheel for $129 which seemed like a pretty good deal to me. I would probably give some away to our neighbors as 5# is a lot to keep from drying out. That or have a big party.

They have other cheeses too, and sell local wines and other things too. That reminds me, there is a really nice winery right on the edge of Medford OR called Roxy Ann Winery which sells good local cheeses to go with their wine tasting, including these from the Rogue Creamery.

There are other useful catalogs out there. There must be.

But the only ones that comes to mind right now are the Lipshaw catalog of morgue paraphernalia and the Levenger catalog Tools for Serious Readers.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
