Monday Updates

A recent post, "Thoughts on High-Fructose Corn Syrup," is up to 85 comments.  Wow!  Thanks to everyone who has chimed in on this discussion.  It has been very interesting and well-mannered.  I have some ideas for making my own vanilla extract now, in case the few remaining HFCS-free versions disappear.

Several folks have asked me if I have a website for my editing/writing/etc. work, with prices for common services.  So I created a "Hire Me" page over on Hypatia's Hoard of Reviews, with sub-pages for FAQ, Pricing, Services, and Terms of Service.  If you're in need of an editor, a writer, or someone otherwise good at turning words and language into tools or toys, please drop by and take a look.

The epic in progress, "A Periodic Table of Elementals," gained some new verses last week.  Carbon and Nitrogen are now up, thanks to jenny_evergreen.  Based on current sponsorship, I have three more verses to write and post before I'm caught up.

Other posts you might want to backtrack and read, if you missed them earlier:
"Photography: Whiskers and Moss" -- pictures of a kitten, moss, bird's nest, and a dead flower; more available for crowfunding.
"Torn Tongue Verbs: Tense" -- rules for tense markers, and more vocabulary.
"Feeding Your Bugs" -- link to a discussion of bugs in healthy gardens.
