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!
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.
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.
I’m spending the next few days with Katie, so I won’t be online much. See y’all at the end of the week! (I’ll try to schedule a few blog posts to fill in.)
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.
Yet another Academy Caritas post today, Learning to Code, Part 2. That’s what I’ve been doing for most of the day!
Today’s main post is at Academy Caritas, Learning to Code, Part 1.
However, I’d also like to say thanks to James and Steven for the lovely visit and the chance to get out of the house for a change!
I missed mentioning an FL post yesterday! It’s one that has been in the works for a while, Canaries Are Us.
Getting Better is today’s post. I’m going to be alternating between posting here and posting on my other blogs from now on, but I’ll always at least post a notice here.
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.
