A poor man celebrates the New Year once a year. A rich man celebrates each day. But the richest man celebrates every moment. ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar With winter here, our focus turns to the house and inward. I love the hibernation, resting, and home focus of the season. A time to reflect and plan for the warmer months to come.

Good morning! I have been reading, learning, testing new features for the blog, trying to get a little more up-to-date with this technology. Snow storms and subsequent resting time have helped a great deal I will say… There is always a silver lining! I added an email subscription option, you can change your subscription settings by visiting the “Blog Subscription” page online after logging in. Another new feature is a contact form which I hope will remove the unpleasant side effect of too much spam when using an email contact online. And last but not least, you can now recommend posts on Facebook if you wish. I am still learning and testing these features so please let me know if you experience any problems, have any questions or request for other feature which would make navigation easier. Have a wonderful day!
