So I’ve had an interesting snafu with my email. Turns out the encrypted server I was using lavabit,.com was also the server of one Edward Snowden. As the NSA leaned on lavabit owner Ladar Levison to cough up info, Levison stood his ground. But that left me without email. What to do now?? I’m no fan of gmail or cloud computing to tell the truth, but there are not many small encrypted servers left.
I have set up an account and I did in fact take the time to re-route my blog information to the new email, but something must still be askew. I’ll put in a word to the wordpress folks and hope they can help me figure out where my updates & comments are being shunted off to… Meantime, please know I appreciate all your visits and comments! I don’t stop in here as frequently as I’d like [to have time for] but I do check in and will respond to each comment when I do.
Autumn is in full swing here. Our apple trees are downright fruity since we trimmed them this past winter. The winter squashes are curing up. Garlic is about to be sorted and then planted/stored as size dictates. And yes…I’ve been fantasizing about tulips again. I know this is probably a bad idea as I currently have two spike bucks as regular visitors, rather tame ones at that. Last week I approached one and was about 8 feet from his muzzle as he lazily munched a fallen apple. The thought of butchering a deer and the knowledge of how much work it is to make buckskin allows these young fellows to keep their skins intact…but I do have thoughts
Wishing you all a blessed and joyous October!
