Next Decade

Don't we look silly?

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify. At one time I thought it would be a great idea to create several blogs, each with its own theme. This is one of those niche blogs. On August 8, 2018 I decided to transition to a single, self-hosted blog which I named My Strange Life.

However I have no intention of forgetting the folks that actually read my posts. Without readers this is just a wasted effort. Here is an updated list of posts that are available at my new location.

Tune for a Pandemic

Close Personal Friend

I’m one of the lucky ones. I’ve worked at home for years, so my daily routine hasn’t changed much. My husband retired almost two years ago, then took a 6-month consulting job that allows him to telecommute, so we haven’t lost a lot of income (tho’ I can’t bear to look at the 401K that was supposed to be our safety net).

An ardent progressivist and champion of labor — a “militant liberal,” The New York Times said in her obituary — Vorse was deeply involved with the Provincetown Players.

Website Redesign

www.poltrack.net

I’ve been working on my website to make it more useful for folks to navigate to content that they may be interested in. Most of my readers are family members so the home page has birthdays and a link to the family community page. Also I’m in the process of adding more links to photographs and a calendar of local events (including Green Center schedule).

Of course there is a prominent link to Amazon.com which pays me an advertising fee if a purchase is made through ti. Thanks for that!
