ON THIS HALLOWEEN, a few mentions of this and that and the other thing:

Today is one year since I moved in at Peanut Road. I might have hoped to have gotten more done here in that time, but I'm okay with things as they are. Taking care of my mom and my business (such as it is) has taken up more of my time than expected.

Speaking of business, this may not really qualify but Peripheral Vision Magazine is now open for submissions for the spring issue. Poetry, art, fiction, reviews, what have you. No 'theme' for this first issue -- just getting it out will be enough!

With the noise Google has been making about integrating Orkut and Blogger and their various other services, I decided to go get me an Orkut page of my own. It's easy if you already have a Google mail account. Not much there at this point that really makes the place attractive (to me) but maybe eventually, so I'm going to be ready. I've read that non-members can't see the pages -- don't know if that's so, but if the link don't work, that's why.

Well, only about a week till I'll be heading over to White Springs for the Florida Folk Festival. I hope to be there midday on Thursday with Mary and Frank and hang for a while. Of course, I'll have to leave and go off to Tuskegee on Friday to record Lynda Garcia's recital. Definitely getting back over there before the weekend is over! Anyway, for those who might be interested, here is Mean Mary James' YouTube page with five videos at the moment. Enjoy!
