My buddy, Michelle Rafter, has issued a Blogathon challenge. Participants are challenged to post a blog a day during the month of May. Michelle, I officially accept your challenge.

Ewe Go, Girl!

The weekend flew by with a fun evening in Lebanon, NH on Saturday. We were able to attend a sold-out Indigo Girls concert held in the Lebanon Opera House.

Each time I stand at the entrance of one of my hives, or open the top to peer inside, I come away with a few tidbits of information. Here are a few tips on home remodeling from one of the best architects in nature: Expect to sweat. Nothing substitutes…

It’s a Whole New World

Well, here I go! Off on another adventure – blogging in space. I must admit, I probably should have devoted the time to rebuilding my sad little temporary (for a year and still counting) website. But for some reason, this seemed like the right challenge. I trust that it is.The universe always sets us up for opportunities to learn and to grow. So, if you happen on this lovely unspoiled blog, take a good look at the name – and tell me what you would like to see here. I’m…
