The site is up.  Www.thecrusadingchemist.com, that is.  I stayed up late setting it up last night, and it is nearly certain to not appeal to you web design connoisseurs, but it is at least uncluttered and straightforward.  Dad’s friend gave us some phone numbers to various contacts, so we decided that there needs to be a website to direct them to all the information they want.

I’m still plodding through my final studies, though I haven’t spent as much time on them as I would like.  I’m also trying to figure out how to repair my laptop’s CD/DVD drive (not sure what happened to it – the hardware is either “corrupted or missing”).  Acer’s website is informative, but not informative enough (at least for me to solve the problem).  I’m going to have to try calling them again. 

We finally have a promising broody hen working on a clutch of eggs.  I should write about that on my homesteadblog…

Monday evening we had a delicious Passover dinner at the Williams’ house (excepting the bitter herbs – particularly horseradish – to which all the children present would testify).   After that we had songs and our little Exodus skit.  I recited the first eight verses of Ex. 6 and the others recited the 10 plagues.  I even liked reciting the ending verses (which I had to memorize in about 20 minutes ).  We happened to have time to begin a game of Carcassonne – which abruptly ended at midnight when we had to leave (Jay took a picture of the board, so perhaps we can reenact it next time).

Rachel and Abigail initiated a flower garden project under the arbor by our pool.  Very nice.

Hey, nice to see you’ve got the website up and running!

But might I add one, tiny suggestion–the background image on the “Screenplay” page makes the text very difficult to read. Perhaps you could lighten the background some more, or just use the color white? But other than that, all the other pages are quite readable, which is important since that’s the whole point of the site. 🙂

Hopefully we can finish that Carcassone game soon!

Take Care!

I’ve been great. Partially because of spring. Ya know? There are those days that, had they been in December, I would have hated, but the sunshine makes everything lovely! I make it a point to make my rounds around the neighborhood at least every 2 weeks and take pictures of allllllllll the flowers, in yards, on sidwalks-everywhere. I then catalog them-or at least rtry too. I even press the really exceptional flowers!

You do Passover too! There are so few christians who do.

I like the website you put up for The Crusading Chemist. I really want to see it someday if everything works out. It sounds interesting
