Where Did This Morning Go?

Whew! Where did this morning go? I’m behind with this RoseBouquet because I’ve had more of those Advance Reviewers’ visits this morning, and learned of more errors to correct. I guess I can only repeat what I said last week about being glad to have this opportunity to find out about these things before the […]


A New Office Chair

Hey, good news! I did find a new office chair on a sale last Friday. So I quickly drove out to the JYSK store after supper and bought the one for about $50, and then spent some time in the evening assembling it. It works well enough for me. Oh, and as for that old […]

Make Plans with Many Advisers

If you are planning to do or create something, be sure to get input from many advisers. Particularly, if they know something about the subject or process, or the people you should involve.

The First Feedback

On Sunday I dropped off a copy of the book for a Board member who was away at a funeral. He phoned last night all excited. He’d been reading in the book and got to about page 80, and he said he had to call to tell me how exciting he found this history! He […]

A Printing & Collating Mess

Things look rather cluttered and messy. Last week I decided I would have to ignore housekeeping and weeding, and even my other blocks of personal time to get this book DONE to the point where I can get 20 copies printed and bound and distributed to a select list of people who have some background […]
