The Northeast, particularly Boston, continues to be hammered by snow, though up here in Vermont, the snow has been not as heavy -- but steady. We have a couple of feet of pack in the woods which is nice for snowshoeing but not so nice for the deer.
We hope the site is working well for you. And thanks to those of you who've made donations to Young Writers Project. As founder and excecutive director I know that we are making a difference in young people's lives as we work to help them become more proficient in an essential live skill -- writing.
We are still looking for some of you to become "bloggers" to post stories about your lives as knitters, spinners and weavers. This helps give the site more of a community feel. Please contact Janet or me if you are interested. NO GUILT required! Do it when you can.
This week, my 99-year-old uncle had planned to begin a series of piano solo concerts in four states to commemorate his 100th birthday. Sadly, he died before reaching his goal, but as he said, "I lived a good life." Indeed he did. If you'd like to see what I wrote about this remarkable man: http://cowbird.com/story/107941/A_Sonata_For_Frank/
A reminder: If you are coming to this site after a long absence, this is a new site, so you must create a new account to participate here, even if you took part in the old site. (We manually approve all accounts; be patient.) ALSO, since this site is different so please familiarize yourself with how this works -- for instance, make sure to click the "titles" of posts if you think you are feeling like "I can't see the ads!" Also, make sure to ALWAYS clear cache (history) on your computer; it will help this site run better for you, but, more importantly, it helps your computer run better!
