The End of the Viking Era


Those who've been reading verbatim since the Old Days (read: before social media, when blogging was all there was) know that I generally have terrible experiences with appliances, large or small—I'm not sure whether there were more posts here about...

We Are Headed North


Happy New Year, everyone! We survived the bomb-cyclone but decided it still wasn't quite cold enough here in Boston, so we've decided to get up tomorrow morning while it's still dark and drive 200 miles northeast. Yes, it's time to...

We Went on Vacation!


As I mentioned not too long ago, Pete is spending this semester in Spain at the University of Salamanca. Last week was his mid-semester break, so Andy and I went to visit him! It was a great trip. We flew...

For a Sweet New Year (Belatedly)

Some of you may remember that our beloved 4-year-old kitty Violet got sick and died suddenly last fall. Then, this spring, our old-lady cat Grace died at age 16. That left only Luna, Violet's littermate. She has always been a...

Catching Up, Yet Again


Yikes, I guess "Write something—anything!—on the blog" never made it to my To-Do list in May. So here comes another mishmash of stuff I've been up to. Editing books, of course! You know I have edited a bunch of Michael...

News from the Comma Mines


Last month was the annual American Copy Editors Society conference, this time in St. Petersburg, Florida. (I am not a big fan of Florida, but at least it was an easy flight and no time change!) Every year I get...
