In any case, we never actually used it for either, nor did we even promote this site. I never left links on like-minded blogs or anything, but rather, simply shared it with select friends and family. My parents and some of their friends especially loved reading it. Even after my father's health declined, and up until shortly before his death, he'd have my mother read it to him. He'd laugh like a hyena over John's way with words. Bill's parents used to come to it occasionally, but they don't anymore.
I guess once it was clear the boys had minimal interest, Sarah and I tried to keep it alive as a family scrapbook of sorts. It's kinda fun sharing the latest/greatest, even though we are often too preoccupied to write during the extreme highs or lows. I occasionally enjoy relieving myself when I get a bee in my bonnet over an issue, and Sally likes posting her pictures and sunshine, but typically saves her rants for her private journal.
The point is, some of the boys are interested in rejuvenating the farm and they might want to use this URL for the business. I'm not even sure we'll continue the blog if they do. If we continue it, you can find us at www.milkandhoneyacres.blogspot.com. We currently redirect our blogspot to our domain www.milkandhoneyacres.com.
It's all very iffy at this point, but I didn't want any of our
Anyway, back to this blog. (I hate the word "blog," but that's beside the point.) I like using this here thang to post items I want the children and/or Bill to see at their leisure, without interrupting our limited time together. For example, Mrs. Sarah shared an intriguing site where you can click on a map of the UK and hear the various dialects. Oh how I love, love, love, that site! You'll see it at the bottom of this post. And if anyone knows of a similar tool for American dialects, please share the link. This just fascinates me.
The problem is I'm conscious there are other readers (albeit only about 25 a day), and although I don't mind being in a fish bowl, I wonder if it is strange to use the family website to communicate with the family. It just strikes me as a weird thing to do even though it is awfully practical. So, we'll see.
Okay, so this is when I just go weirdly posting stuff:

Some of the boys say this song reminds them of Ma... except... Ma never made brownies (that we know of):
