I did good, cont. again

…Part Three in a three-part series… In the normal state of affairs, I would have blogged in great detail about this whole thing, because I’m incredibly wonky about process and I would have loved to share every excruciating detail about How I Did It, but in this case there were hippie-feelings involved.  Just posting the […]

I did good

You may have noticed, in my gargantuan list of activities from yesterday, that a great many of them had to do with Alchemy, our fall regional Burning Man-style gathering.  Here’s what happened. Last spring, we were on new property over in the Great Eastern Wastelands of Georgia and were thinking we had found a new, […]

Oldie but goodie

Again, on Facebook… I’ve actually blogged about this before… A snark (originally posted 04/27/2007) This email arrived in my box at school this morning: I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone? What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we flipped […]

Sir Christémas: so far, so good

I had pulled together several texts last night which I found on The Hymns and Carols of Christmas, a pretty exhaustive site. If you’d like to second guess me (other than the hundreds I didn’t even look at), here’s a list: http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/a_a_a_a_nunc_gaudet_maria.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/child_divine.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/little_children_wake_and_listen.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sir_christmas.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/wrapt_in_the_silence_of_the_nigh.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/yule_days.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sleep_my_little_jesus.htm I really liked the Yule Days one, […]

Through the Looking-glass

My internet server has a spam filter on it and catches about 100 spam emails a day.  It’s very good—I’m actually quite surprised when I get a spam message in my inbox these days. However, it will also occasionally snag emails from people or companies that I want to hear from, and so when I […]

ERIE, Day 6

Back to the Falls! Today we do the American side, which is smaller and in some ways better organized and enjoyable than the vast Canadian north. You can compare the views from the two countries, and clearly Canada wins on scale and scope.  But there is much to admire from this side as well. We […]

Erie, Day 3

It dawned on me that I never explained why we were driving to Toronto.  Our good neighbor Sue, having discovered after living for 20 years in the South that she couldn’t take the heat, bought a cabin in upstate NY, to which she decamps every May.  We promised to come visit last year, but didn’t […]
