Summer Vacation!

No. I'm not on vacation, even though a lot of other people are. I get summer vacation in September, when Ruth and I go to P-Town for a few days, but that's after Fall equinox, so, it's actually a Fall vacation. So why that post title? I have been spending a lot of time working in our screen porch, which feels like heaven.

Catching up on UU blogs

I while ago, when I was still part of the UU Blogosphere, I kept up with lot of UU blogs, like Philocrites, Chalice Chick, PeaceBang, and quite a number of others. After I left UUism, I didn't read very many UU blogs.

"Structural Deficiencies"

It has become somewhat of a meme, that phrase, taken from reports about the bridge that collapsed in Minnesota.

A reason to not use a commercial service

As you probably recall, I recently moved this blog from Typepad to Wordpress. It was an easy process, and one that was well worth it. But, of course, spammers of all stripes (email spammers, comment spammers, weblog spammers) are like mold growing on a piece of bread that's been out for a few days. In order to avoid having to cough up $150 for another year, and to move to an entirely free and open source platform that I control, I cancelled my typepad account.

Just finished Harry Potter

I just finished Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows. I won't post any spoilers here. It was a good book, a fun and engaging read, full of the standard JK Rowling mysteries and puzzles and twists and turns. But it was, in the end incredibly predictable. Which is OK, I guess. But I haven't understood all of the hype around it, and the spoiler warnings, etc.

Moving again ...

I know, it seems like just a few weeks ago that we were unpacking the relocubes, dealing with snow, moving bookshelves and furniture, putting up pictures and all of that stuff. It was actually 5 months ago, but that time has flown. We decided, for a variety of reasons, to move again. We're moving to Shelburne Falls - a sweet little town on the other side of the river. It's a very  nice place, and our house is going to be in short walking distance to town.
