08:34 – The Internet seems to be going into hibernation. Site visits here are way down–fewer than 600 yesterday–as are comments. I’m getting very little email. Even the email and comment spammers seem to be on vacation. And it’s not just me. The sites I visit regularly seem to be getting a lot less comment traffic, as do the mailing lists I subscribe to and follow on the web. Where did everybody go?
We’re continuing to watch Little House on the Prairie. The writing is corny and one can see the plot twists coming a mile away, but it’s still better than most of the current junk on TV. The thing I like best about it is the focus on self-reliance. When there’s a problem, people simply buckle down and get it fixed. There’s no government there to step in and “fix” things. Kids aren’t smart asses and don’t sass their parents. Actions have consequences. There aren’t any EBTs. If you don’t work, you don’t eat.
Barbara is cleaning house this morning. This afternoon, we’ll work on science kit stuff and seed kit stuff.
