Wednesday, October 1, 2008


Well that was fairly painless. If you're reading this, you've either checked out my AOL journal lately, or had the perspicacity to stumble across this new blog. I've decided not to worry about whether the old journal/blog gets moved over. I'll back up the files during the next week, but if they don't reappear over here, well....

I'm hoping my AOL readers are able to find me here. I'm hoping I'll be able to find me here. We'll see, along with the addition of sidebars and other things as we go along.

The word of the day for October 1, 2008 is "
arrival" —
Pronunciation: \ə-ˈrī-vəl\
Function: noun
Date: 14th century
1 : the act of
arriving. 2 : the attainment of an end or state. 3 : one that has recently arrived [new arrivals].

Our quote for the day is from Dylan Thomas (1914–1953), Welsh poet. “We lying by seasand”:

But wishes breed not, neither
Can we fend off rock arrival,
Lie watching yellow until the golden weather
Breaks, O my heart’s blood, like a heart and hill.

  1. Nice to see you over here. I must admit I absolutely hate the comments system and not having any alerts but to constantly look to see if people have posted but it is better than nothing.

  2. Wonderful word for today hon! Glad to see you this side of the blogsphere. (Hugs)Indigo

  3. Well hello Jan...I'm glad you have managed to transfer smoothly over to Blog. I have yet to find out how to keep all the addresses of everyone from JLand together without missing out on anyone as I try to keep up with everyone. What a nightmare! we could do with alerts on here too
