I swear I'm still here!

I seem to be saying this a lot lately, but thanks to everyone who is still checking in during these prolonged absences.

Things are hectic at work, I've been a little under the weather, and I've been busting my tail doing farm work during my free time!

...but I am still here!

Unless something really unexpected happens this week, I will be headed to Vermont on Thursday night. I'm very excited about seeing my old buddies and maybe doing a little bit of hiking...

By the way, it's been a while since I've posted any pictures. If I do end up hiking next weekend, I'll be sure to post the views for you.

...My beloved Buffalo Bills still stink (0-3), but I don't hold it against them.

...My wife's beloved Penn State Nittany Lions lost to Michigan, blowing their chance at a national title.

...As you can read at
Croit Coille na Dragan, the weather has been bloody awful.

...I've been listening to
Sean Hannity on the way home from work. Can anyone say Rush, Jr.? They both drive me insane. There is a major void in American politics. I do not know of a party or candidate that represents middle class, anti-immigration, anti-runaway-development, gun-loving, tax-hating Americans. The G.O.P. represents big business, globalization, and illegal aliens. The Democrats represent those who wish to control us, minorities, urbanites, "progressives" (synonym for socialists), and a variety of other "colorful" groups. It's rather frustrating.

Wow, I have a million other things to talk about, but I really need to get to bed. Quickly:

I went to the
Finger Lakes Fiber Festival two weeks ago. It was wonderful, as usual.

I saw this super cool magazine called "Wild Fibers." You can check out their website

The Canadian dollar (CAN$) began trading equal the U.S. dollar (US$) on Friday morning, even exceding it at midday. I don't know if the Canadian dollar has strengthened, the American dollar has weakened, or a little of both. I also heard that the U.S. dollar hit a new low against the Euro. Probably not a good sign for the United States of America...

Okay, time to hit the sack. I will try to shorten the time between posts, but I make not guarantees. I wish everyone in the blogsphere well. Until next time!

I guess it must have been late...I was reading with great interest that they have a "fiber festival" down there! Just as I was going to wonder how progressive you must be to find excitement in colon health, I clicked in the link and noticed it was a "fiber ARTS festival". Pity...

Hi there!
So yeah, American politics are really crappy right now. Also, I can tell you from traveling in other countries lately, mostly Europe, that the American dollar is definitely at an all time low, low, low. It's bad, especially for those of us who are paid in American Dollars, hahaha. Ugh.

Anyway, good luck and I hope you enjoy Vermont. I look forward to seeing hiking photos!

P.s. Ross is a huge MICHIGAN fan :)
