well trained

My friend Harry has me well-trained.  He is coming by early these days because he knows I will come out and feed him and he gets it all instead of having to fight off the other critters.  I particularly enjoy that he doesn’t have to fight off the skunks.  The baby skunk that is coming lately is very cute but can still be really, really stinky.  Tonight I fed Harry grapes when he came by a second time.  He would come quite close to get the grapes and probably I could train him to take them from me – but I’m not going to do that!  Still, he’s become comfortable with me and will wait while I go into the house to get him his food.  Harry is the best part of my day.

starting fresh, part deux

Well it seems that I’m unlikely to be able to get the old blog archives reposted.  The details don’t matter and there may be some options but right now, I’m taking this as a sign to let go of the past.  I actually have really, really old blogs in word format and I could, if I were insane, do the same thing with these old blogs.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

As a part of starting fresh, there are things I want to do.  I want to write more yet I’m tired of writing about the depressing stuff going on in my life.  I want to start taking more photographs again and to post those recipes that I’ve got lying around.  Though at least a couple need a second try before I consider them done.  Oh, and about this blog, I am hoping to do monthly headers.  That’s part of the reason for the clean layout.  Oh, and there is work to do.  I hate light blue links and overly large headers.  It’s been a while since I’ve done these things and I’m kind of looking forward to it.  Maybe I’ll get to some of those projects I’ve been thinking of doing.  Who knows?  It’s a fresh new start and anything is possible.

starting fresh

It’s been a while since I’ve done this.  New host, new and seriously updated (but very cool) version of WordPress.  New phpAdmin issues.  If I had downloaded my old database as an xml file it would not be an issue.  Eve’s blog transfered nicely.  But no, mine disappeared before I learned about that new option and I downloaded the sql file and I keep getting errors while trying to upload it.  Anyway, I more or less planned to start fresh and archive the old posts.  Maybe I’ll get that working but who here is really interested in the technical issues anyway?

There is still work to be done here, obviously, but I wanted to say hello and to reassure Tom and Hannah that I have not disappeared forever.  I am certain that MN knows full well that I am a bad penny and you cannot get rid of me that easily.
