Mill Creek Almanac art, by Wordle

Here's how Mill Creek Almanac looks from the vantage of Wordle, a neat program that converts text into art, at http://www.wordle.net. Enter text or a favorite web address and watch what happens. Would be great for wedding vows, favorite song, religious text, etc.

First big snow 2009


CadMur Manor got hit with about a foot of snow overnight. (See my Picasa photo album here or hold your cursor over the slide show to the right.) Not a lot of wind, so there weren't any troublesome drifts. Just beautiful, snow-covered lawn-furniture and plant-scape. Sheba and Siegfried From KAOS aren't big fans of the white stuff. They tolerate it minimally. But whenever the snow reaches the height of their withers or higher, I have to shovel a path to the 100-square-foot section of grass. They're all business now. Out and back in.
