Quiet morning…thoughts on book boycotts

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

===First, a reading link: Eric Flint commenting on a letter from someone about boycotting Harlan Ellison ===This came from else-blog where someone was discussing authors with good writing, but problematic public beliefs/politics. (Such as the unfortunate aspects of Sanderson, Card, and McCaffrey) (Ok, I have not really gone for Card since Enders Game trilogy, and [...]

Mithlond Weekend still on!

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

===It looks like the hurricane is not supposed to really affect us here at Mithlond, so we are still on!  I will be here, so feel free to show up around 5 or later if you are coming. (please still let me know that you ARE coming.) ===I got a fair bit done today…harvested the [...]

All is well…

===Apparently there was an earthquake yesterday.  I was driving in the DC area, and did not feel it.  My theory is that the earthquake was visiting others, and decided to not bother me while I was doing errands.  I can appreciate the thoughtfulness.  (chuckles) ===Currently getting things cleaned up around here for Mithlond Weekend…For those [...]

Possible Mithlond Weekend

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

Non-Euclidean Piping outside my door…

===So, I picked up 6 guinea fowl keets (6 week old birds) last night. ===I had not expected quite the morning concert, which sounds like there are multiple instances of the “Psycho” theme playing.  The peeping sounds like it can open up gates between worlds, and I am hopign that whatever might do so, is [...]

In the morning….

===Sipping some coffee, having finished feeding the baby rabbits with a feeding syringe.  The other rabbit did not foster them, so it looks like I will be on feeding duty for a bit. ===A bit later I will be going up to the semi-local Sothern States to see what they have in terms of possible [...]

Snakes!  In A Crepe!

Monday, August 8th, 2011

===Ok, today has been one of those days… ===I started the day by making crepes.  I made some very nice crepes, using my very nice cast iron pan that is perfect for making such things. ===I got a few things I needed to do, done.  I was about to go over to my neighbors to [...]

Ri-adjustments….

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

===It has been an interesting week of looking at how things work, how they do not, and deciding how I want to go about the future. ===Waiting on the licensing paperwork to see if I am eligible to work for CPS again, and then find out (once I get that paperwork), if they want to [...]
