I don't have any new volumes out to exhort you to read. I don't have any nifty blogs to connect you to right now. I am really batting 0 out of 1000 at the moment. Sorry about that.
On the plus side, however, I saw around 16 birds at the three bird feeders in my front yard today. I felt almost like a Disney princess as I sat there attempting to come up with something to post or write. I had very little luck in the writing department but the goldfinches were charming.
