Thursday Shorts 04-23-2009
SHORTS is the name of the game for a while here. Blogging takes a far back slot in the day to a 19-month-old who hates her bath and whose favorite loud word is MINE!, an eight year old who wants me to help her write a book, and a three month old, three pound cocker-dachsund rodent for which we cannot find the OFF switch.

â˜€I’m feeling ruminations (which are at risk of being totally squashed when 1000 books arrive on May 6) to make some significant changes to the template of the blog. Taking a look now at Thesis.Â I’ve been wondering about taking down the notecard thumbnail strips. (They get a lot of clicks but the visits don’t sell any notecards, and I’m wondering about letting that project just fade on out when the current stock of cards is sold out.) What do you think?
â˜€ HAVE TICKETS! I’ll make a separate post of it later, in-between diaper changes and keeping my shoe laces from becoming puppy fodder. Local types, please purchase a ticket from Ann or me, even if you can’t come on May 23, a month from today! A $10 donation would be a great help to the Park project.
â˜€ USA Today from Yesterday’s Travels–a pig featured prominently on Page One caught my attention. It’s surroundings looked familiar. I have a picture of that very pig lot at Polyface Farm from last year’s October visit with the Society of Environmental Journalist. A documentary featuring Joel Salatin is coming. Read more.
â˜€ Finally, plug a Jellyfish Wind Appliance into your wall outlet and SELL energy back to the utility company. This is a Google Idea Contest Winner.
