Just sheared off all of the people in the who have deleted themselves … Count went down from 856 to 844 members as a result. I’m really happy that when folks ask a question, many others pop in to help out. It’s been the most productive, easy to manage community possible. There’s generally a few posts a day, sometimes several. I hope I didn’t jinx myself there.

It turns out that there are 18 people who read my journal and are members of the hut. (including the hut itself… I guess I should really call it 17.) I’m quite surprised that there aren’t more.

I have to swing by UPS sometime this week (probably tomorrow), before work. Apparently they need my signature to deliver something, and I wasn’t home three times. Sakes… Don’t most folks work during the week? Hard to sign for a delivery at that point.


Newt Likes Broccoli! I was heating some leftovers for brunch, and the little orange piggy walked right over…I didn’t give it a second thought, as Newt likes to curl up, and hang close as a rule. I was talking to him, and gestured in his general direction with a forkful of steamed broccoli. He followed it with his eye, and hooked a mitt around the fork, and began to lick the morsel in question. That’s fair enough., but it came as a surprise, considering that he seems to actually prefer kibble to most human food. Though, he didn’t eat the stem, just the flower head. it had a little soy sauce on it… the salt must’ve been the draw for him…I’ve seen him lick potato chips clean, and leave a limp, saltless tater-tatter behind.

Lionel is a good older brother to Stanley. (I wonder if anyone aside from Kelly will know who I’m talking about.)

Ok… off to get moving on the three S’s. Time for a beard trim. Until later, dear journal!
