  • What Poetry Form am I?

    My #1 Answer: I am, of course, none other than blank verse. I don’t know where I’m going, yes, quite right; And when I get there (if I ever do) I might not recognise it. So? Your point? Why should I have a destination set? I’m relatively happy as I am, And wouldn’t want to […]

    This is my first post on this blog since late 2005. I closed it down, intending to move posts from here to my other blog, not all, just some, and started working on it via a MySQL text file, but became thoroughly worn out by the enormity of the job that I quit and kept […]

  • My Bookpile Contest Entry

    Library Thing’s Bookpile Contest A note about this photo: I was on the LibraryThing blog and read the post there about the contest.

    See my previous post about my eye, UGH, read the comments to see how it was resolved. 🙂 This post is about Library Thing. I signed up on 9-11-2005. I wasn’t sure how much I’d like it, since I’ve wanted a bar-code scanner and software for several years now, since I first read about it […]
