SHANGRI-LA

Blossom and Daisy are two of our most sweet-tempered goats, and always on call for milking demonstrations at the farm. However... as soon as we got to Google this past weekend Blossom made a frantic break for her freedom, capering across the Google lawns in probably the most chaotic action the Google lawns have ever seen. I don't know; she may have fancied the engineering life. It's a Shangri-La for engineers at Google we loved the clean-cut boys doing their laundry early on Saturday morning, and the compostable cutlery in the canteens, and you'll have to check out the bathrooms! It was the delightful Google chefs hosting us, for a DooF-a-Palooza http://www.foodbackwards.com/  kids enjoying real food on a new PBS series.

The very delightful David Poth, kitchen manager, made us feel hungry describing how the Google food is real they shop for seasonal, local food (within 150 miles if not from their own strictly aligned, immaculate vegetable boxes). After we'd redesigned the straw bale pen, to thwart Blossom, who definitely won't be hired again, we had a fabulous time. We had two of our first baby goats along as well, and most people are surprised at their soft cuddliness. We got to admire the incision of Google offspring (Exactly how many different types of goat are there?), and their parents ('Look! See how the goat's pupils are stadium-shaped?). A great day out!
