Good morning everyone. We are up and running with several projects this week. Jim Dugan has been hard at it again and built us a new website that we can begin to manage and update on our own. That means fewer visits to the “cave” where all things great in the publishing world originate, on and off-line.
Check out the new website. While it may look a whole lot like the old one there are many subtle differences that the creepy crawlies of the web will recognize and a few that even you may recognize. The website may begin to take on a little more of our voice over time but Jim swears he will be watching like a hawk for anything that does not meet his gold standard. Jim knows I can get a little carried away. But we look forward to being able to keep the website up-to-date at 3 in the morning instead of waking up Jim. So here is where we need your help. Are there any glaring mistakes that we (don’t hold Jim responsible) have made? Email us and let us know so WE can fix it. Or at least we can go crawling to Jim on hands and knees with hats in hand. So a big thanks goes to Jim Dugan, web guru and design expert extraordinaire. There are still many changes to come so keep an eye on us.
Also on tap this week…. maples! The spring run is on. The sap run started a few weeks ago in some places and we have seen a local sugar house boiling down already.We put out our usual 2 dozen taps and hope to do some boiling this weekend. Cool nights and warm days are on order and we will look forward to serving pancakes with our own maple syrup this summer.
Colby had her first puppy training class last night. Socialization being a big part of the process a good 20 minutes was spent letting the pups maul each other. There was a 17 week old Rhodesian ridgeback that towered over the small pups but they set their boundaries. Colby had the ridgeback running for cover at one point. Those little teeth are sharp! For you folks worried about Gussie… she can take of herself as poor Colby is learning.
