Restoring Mayberry

I was researching something recently--whitewash, or lime production, or something weird like that--when I stumbled across this lovely blog.

It's kept by an American who moved to Ireland and blogs about living off the land, and life in Ireland, and doing things the old-fashioned way. He's a wonderful writer and a wonderful photographer, and I now drop in frequently to vicariously savor a place that glows fondly in my memory.

Restoring Mayberry .  Worth a visit.

Cool. I'll have to have a look.

We were all talking about backing up files earlier this week. I am reading a modern detective novel at the moment and the detective in it is on the road interviewing suspects in a murder case. He is very concerned that one of them may try to get at his notes, or himself for that matter, so every night after typing up his notes he sends them to himself attached to an email, then if anything happens to his PC he can pick up his emails with the files attached on his son's PC when he gets home. Cool idea!!

I like the concept Suzanne suggests but she's just trying to make you and me feel better Candy. But when I read her post I did think "Wow - why didn't I think of that?"

Thank you for sharing about this blog. I read his summer solstice post, and really enjoyed it. His thoughts on how light shapes our sense of place resonated strongly with me. And while I do not fully embrace his back-to-the-land lifestyle (I am somewhat of a militant urbanite) I find much wisdom in what he writes.

Charles, it's a lovely blog.

Suzanne, I actually used to do that with my books. It was only after the crash I discovered my email provider deletes emails from their server after 30 days, so all my old emails were gone.

Lynne, it does work in the short term.

Paz, I must admit that the older I get, the more the thought of that lifestyle just makes my joints ache!
