Back…

It has been a long couple of weeks.  It took a full week for the stomach virus to drag through the entire household two weeks ago…when I thought we were done, well…not.  Last Friday we were finally clear, and able to leave the house again…just as Eli began his week long school break (Eli, who…

More on Comments and Censorship

Hi Folks – I’ve gotten (rightly) a number of emailed complaints about the number of comments that are disappearing, and more questions about whether I am censoring comments, or moderating them.

Three feet and counting so far. The prediction for the “upper elevations” (that would be us) is that we could get another 1-2 feet before tomorrow night. So while I am lost in meditation of the stunning beauty that surrounds me and trying to locate my woodpile, our car and the dog, all of whom…

What is your blogiste doing instead of writing posts and working on her new book these days? She is frantically trying to make her home a suitable place for the workshop she’s running in it in a few days. That means moving furniture that might get moved and discovering things horrible beyond description. It means…
