Greetings from a dirt road just outside Burlington! The people here in Vermont are great, the air is clean, and the land is beautiful: a perfect mix of water, mountains, communities, and farmland.

This month's humor piece is the original Ellen Feiss switch ad, and the Bill Feiss parody ad.

For the professional stuff, check out the Microseeds web site.


Near and dear to my heart are my family (not quite up-to-date photos here) and our dogs Hobee and Carley.


Near and dear to my belly are muffins and pizza and homebrew beer. Each comes in a incredible variety, limited only by one's recipes and/or imagination. And all are easier to make than you'd think.


My friend Tim got me into homebrewing a couple years ago, and I've had a lot of fun since then making my own beer. It's not hard to do, and the motto of it all is "relax, have a homebrew." And lately I got my friend Tom into homebrewing as well, since the more the merrier (and you get to try more samples).

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
-- Ben Franklin


I've enjoyed giving and receiving massage for all my adult life, and have taken various massage courses along the way. A while back I completed a year-long course at Don Wright's Vermont Institute of Massage, which was a wonderful and enriching experience. Great stuff!


I really love inline skating. It's fun, it's great exercise, it beats the heck out of jogging (which I never had the patience for anyway), and it's a great non-competitive sport to enjoy with friends.

There's a wonderful bike path in Burlington that goes along the shore of Lake Champlain, a five mile, mostly-level stretch with magnificent views of the lake and the Adirondacks. South Burlington's bike path is more hilly and goes thru woods, a park, and various neighborhoods. One great thing about blading is that you can do it just about anywhere there's a street or paved path.

And finally, here are some quotes from the Notebooks of Lazarus Long.
