What happened to the quotes?

At some point, all of the many, many thou­sands of quo­ta­tions that were stored on my blog went 404. That’s high­ly annoy­ing. I have many more, but it’s going to take a lot of work to get them uploaded. The first file I came across in my archives was all about choco­late, so that’s all that’s in the data­base at the moment. (I do like choco­late, but not to the exclu­sion of all else!) I’ll work on get­ting the oth­ers put in place after I do the more urgent site updates.
Edit­ed to add: Ack! I found an old com­ment that said there had been 13,064 quotes in the data­base back in 2008! I don’t think I have THAT many in my oth­er files!

Moving Things Around

I’m tired of main­tain­ing ump­ty-lev­en web sites, so I’m mov­ing things off my sub­sidiary sites and back to this one. There may be some odd­i­ties and bro­ken links here and there for a bit as a result. I’m try­ing to update a lot of things as I go, so it’s going to take some time to com­plete this project.

Family Announcement

I know, I know — I’ve been post­ing a lot of reviews late­ly. They seemed more inter­est­ing than actu­al updates. Most of my time has been spent doing vol­un­teer work for Grants to You, which is inter­est­ing to do but not to describe.

How­ev­er, I have actu­al NEWS now! My baby girl and her beau are engaged! I swear, it feels like she was just learn­ing to walk last week and now she’s all grown up!

No, there isn’t a date set for the wed­ding yet. I’ll post more when there is one. But for now, I’m very hap­py for my girl and her sweet­heart. There have been lots of tears of joy around here.

Addition: Task Card Template

I’ve updat­ed the arti­cle on our card sys­tem and added a Word doc­u­ment that has blank task cards, to help peo­ple make their own cards. That has been request­ed by sev­er­al dif­fer­ent peo­ple over time, and I final­ly found the orig­i­nal Word doc­u­ment, which made it eas­i­er to do so.

I’m con­sid­er­ing fur­ther updates to that sec­tion, as some of the resources I orig­i­nal­ly linked to have dis­ap­peared and it seems to need more expla­na­tion. I’ll think on it a bit more, though.

Lifelong Learning

Now that Katie is in col­lege, I plan to use this site to con­tin­ue talk­ing about home learn­ing, but to change its focus to learn­ing at any age. I’m open to posts from guest blog­gers with some­thing to say about home­school­ing or life­long learn­ing, as well. If you’re inter­est­ed, please con­tact me through the con­tact form linked at the side of the site.
