I've been neglecting these pages for a while now, and am thinking that should bring things up to date. We'll see. I have some time in the next few weeks, so I'll try. There is lots to tell, and maybe a new campaign to completely open the Canada/US border to bees on and off comb!
Be sure to check back over the last few months, since I am filling them in.

This isn't the first time I've been asked this question, and I've set out to look at it a few times over the past few years, but haven't quite figured out how it fits in with what I'm doing. I have some other ideas, and may change format soon, but keep the suggestions coming. If I could get a simple 1, 2, 3 sort of explanation of how to proceed, I might just get around to it soon.
By the way, if you have written me, and I haven't replied, I'm still digging myself out from under a pile of work. If it is urgent, please write again.

I spent the day in the basement here at Blacks', catching up on things, including these pages.

I awoke early and looked out to see several inches of new snow. Today I pick Mom up at the hospital and head home to Sudbury, so I am not pleased to see that the roads will be slushy, and that we may be driving through flurries and blowing snow.
Here is a suggestion for me to consider. I actually have experimented with some content management systems the do RSS, but never did get around to decide whether to move in that direction. Check this out. It is just a shell that I put up some time back, but have been too busy to play with.
The difficulty I have with RSS is that I don't quite get how the material gets into RSS, when it expires, and how it lives in the database. I'm not looking for extra work, and, frankly, although I am delighted to find out how many people read these pages, I don't really care if anyone does or not. The other factor that I find unsuitable to my style is that I do not just write one piece to distribute daily, but rather I peck at the keyboard from time to time, and may publish ten to fifty times a day, or none, depending on my mood. I also typically go back and re-write several times. Sometimes that is an hour later, and sometimes days.
Well, Mom and I arrived in Sudbury. The drive was uneventful, although there was plenty of slush and congestion on the roads until we got north of Barrie.
