August Questions and Comments

Hard to believe that another month has come and gone and I am still blogging every day.  Here are my responses to your questions and comments from the overheated weeks of August.

Andrea congratulates me on the accomplishment of wearing shoes, but really wants to know:  how is the running going?

Well, I am still just walking, haven't gotten to any running yet, but I did just sign up for the 5k that we are planning on running together, so now I have some motivation.

tRa notes that:  [The Irish Fair] looks like a much bigger event than the Scottish Festival, I wonder why? 

I think there are a lot more Irish folk and others who identify with the Irish in the United States than there are Scottish people.  It might also have something to do with the multiple beer tents and one whiskey tent sponsored by the local Irish bars.  We don't have any Scottish bars.

MA Reynolds recommends: the experience of a physics slam on ice.

How did I not know about this?  This is exactly the sort of weird, cool stuff that I want to make time for this year!  When's the next one?

Kelly Erskine and Andrea recommend shopping online.

To you both, I can only say that shopping online is still shopping and I just can't bring myself to do it unless absolutely necessary.

Much gratitude to Megan for  excellent technical advice on how to follow my blog, although I didn't really understand most of the words.  I'll be asking you for more advice soon!

Thanks to tRa for uncovering yet another outdoor pageant to add to my list.

A shout-out to Kristi and Kelly Erskine for being fellow mosquito bite sufferers.  We have to stick together.  Maybe the bugs will bite you both instead of me!

Finally, a huge thank you to Kari Jo and all who have expressed their sympathy for my family's loss of Alice, a matriarch and an amazing lady. She will live on in the stories I will tell and write about her in the weeks and years to come.
