Pip, thanks for hosting, and a happy White Squirrel Festival to you. Sorry to hear about your shoulder setback. Let's talk some time about the Escherian river that crosses over a divide.
What a week. We did get the predicted snow Monday, and subfreezing temperatures Tuesday morning. It's beautiful today, though, and should stay that way through the weekend.
I have emerged from the Coventry rabbit hole after a successful virtual trip to Scotland. I rearranged a couple of families, and if I upset anyone I haven't heard about it. Yet. I did contact them first. Honest, I did.
I also survived the G2G madhouse this week. Yikes, what a week of crankiness and conflict, including:
* Obstinate GEDCOMmers;
* Revivification of zombie threads, some as old as six years;
* Super-size portions of word salad;
* A shameful disheartening suspension (I hope temporary) of the requirement to assume each other's good faith.
It looks like the Mentors got a good workout, but finally the explanation came to light: Madness induced by excess orderliness! Honestly, I despair for our community if we leave this dead bison in our intellectual watering hole.
On a more pleasant and peaceful note, I encountered four mule deer browsing along the road this week. I stopped to admire them, and they calmly gazed back. A pair of white-winged doves is building a nest in the locust tree outside my office window. And if that's not soothing enough, how about a butterfly?
