I thought long and hard about posting this. I’ve never asked the internet and my network of friends for help before, but this time–my family needs all the help I can muster. For urgent family reasons, I’m asking for help in finding my niece Danielle Lee Moyer, birthdate November 21st. Danielle is the child of […]
Another month of tough choices. Here are the four winners from the double, October mega contest: From Musingaloud They say you can wander Jasper’s Wood a hundred years and never find its heart. Unless you know how to listen. Not with your ears, foolish one. Listen with your soul. Listen! Do you hear the wood, […]
Don’t forget this month’s contest! Contest ends at midnight PDT on October 21st. I will pick the winners and post the winning entries on Monday evening. Dazzle me. Make my jaw drop and take my breath away.

My next day off is six long working days away, otherwise known as next Wednesday. I did my best to pack all the things–all of them–into today. As usual, I failed. I still haven’t found a way to turn a day off into a bag of holding. But I got some laundry done, errands run, […]

This will be a double contest to make up for September. Contest will run for two (2!) weeks instead of one. I will choose two […]
Bits and pieces of me, blown on the internet winds…. 1. September will be known now and forever as Critical Internet Failure Month. I couldn’t get to email, couldn’t post, couldn’t do most of what I wanted or needed to do a great deal of the time. Ladies and gents, it was officially no fun […]
“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.’ Rebeca West 1882-1983 All I’ve got in me for today is that quote. More tomorrow when I’m awake.
The cross poster to LJ doesn’t work and the Twitter feed seems to have vanished, but we’ll get that worked out. Other than that, the site is live. More when I get home from work tonight.
