Today is Saturday. Our paper has a couple of big sections—fashion, art, theatre, books—you get the idea, and we both love to sit at the kitchen table, drinking coffee, eating breakfast and reading. But this morning the front path was cushioned in snow and there was not a single footprint to indicate a visit from the paper person. That's pc, because today the paper boy of the past drives a car and, I was convinced, belongs to a union which won't allow delivery when there is more than a certain amount of snow on the ground. In spite of our handsome Christmas tip.
Hardly a post here because I wanted to follow up my last two entries, but it will mark the date of what is hopefully the last snow of the year.

I have been realizing of late that I need to tidy up some functions on my blog, adding, deleting and bringing up to date. I also wanted to say a thing or two about blogs in general.
And I still will. The timing seems perfect, because I have more reason than before to make some decisions. I have written several times about Ronni Bennett. I admire her blog enormously. Some of it is aimed solely at an American audience, some, it can be argued applies only to women, and it is written entirely with an older audience in mind. That said, never think that blogs written by older American women are not worth reading by any audience.
She has just taken a few days off researching and writing to bring up to date her list of selected blogs by people fifty or older. As she says, "Check out some of them; you will be glad you did." Use dicretion: they are utterly diverse—as blogs should be. I was originally on the list, but I was dropped when there was a hiatus in my blog and one of her criteria is that the blogger should post at least once a week. I don't think she checks much, but a break of over a year became apparent last time she revised her list. She has just spent time bringing her list up to date, and I am glad that I am back. It is a much longer list than before, so you have all kinds of choices. You can use the link indicated above, or click on the red badge in the right hand column of my blog.
