Gardens coming together…

Monday, July 4th, 2011

===I just got back in from picking up some potting soil, and rescued 3 muscadine grape vines and a peach tree.  I will be amending the cheap potting soil (which is really just a light top-soil-ish thing) with rabbit manure and worm compost. ===Planting the new batch of potatoes today, in a “potato tower” setup [...]

this and that…

Friday, July 1st, 2011

===Just got introduced to this: squareup.com…have signed up for it to test it out. ===I occasionally do tarot readings for folks, and this might be a nice thing to have available when I need it.  I have written them to ask about some things in their rules….it has the usual verbage about not using it [...]

For your handmade shopping..(grins)

Foxtail Woodcrafts ===This would be the person who made my first Top-Bar hive, and our really nice table loom.  Great person, very nice work.  He has always been good, but he keeps refining and getting better. Green Bunny Hats ===Another very cool person, who makes hats, and also has a makeup artistry business: ===One of [...]

Fine authors, awful internet (inter)face.

Friday, June 24th, 2011

===So, I have seen a slight bit of the most recent Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) fiasco.  ===This is yet another case of folks that should not be interacting on the internet.  ===I draw attention to this (found when looking at the most recent incident): scott_adams_sock_puppetry_scandal ===I have seen this dynamic before.  For those familiar [...]

“When you’re up in the rigging, don’t rest both feet on the same line.”

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

===Just a great line that someone quoted in their blog, and it sang right…(grins) (it is apparently from A Salty Piece of Land by Jimmy Buffet.) ===I do not do a whole lot with boat imagery, (I am a bit more of the ecology mythos myself….spiders and fungi and webs of relation), but this rigging [...]

Morning and coffee….(and schedulings)

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

===Ok…looking at the weekends, I am still checking a few things before I set the Mithlond Weekend date.  I am inclined to go for the mid-month rather than the end of the month of July (although I can be swayed…).  I assume that most folks would not want it to be the weekend just before [...]

Mithlond Weekend: the restart!

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

===Whilst in the midst of getting ready for visitors tomorrow, it occurs to me that it is a good time to set up the re-start of Mithlond Weekend.  ===So, I will be checking my calendar, and will have one probably in mid-July.  Let me know if you are interested!  (By then, the Yarrow beer should [...]

rising sun…

Friday, June 17th, 2011

===Currently listening to Irfan …quite nice. ===At this time of year, the sun rises in just the right space of the mountain that it angles exactly right to hit me in the chair I sit in drinking my coffee in the kitchen….and then it is blocked by the trees a bit.  Very nice. It is [...]

Settling in, thinking….

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

===Getting back settled in a bit here at Mithlond…the event was good, (not the best one I have had personally, but it looks to have been really good for a number of folks, which is why I run it, honestly.) ===The earlier post I made on the drama-person was more about my chagrin at how [...]

Things brewing…

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

===Upon reflection, staying up until 4 making yarrow beer was not the most conducive to my being conscious before 1 pm (chuckles) ===Hey, it is coming upon the solstice, the full moon was up last night, I figured it was a good time to do this.  We are running low on the batch from last [...]
