Potlatch Game

Here's an update on the Potlatch game:

Once again, we want to thank each and everyone of you for your support.
And as a token of our appreciation, for everyone who has and will order a
physical copy of our game we will include a digital copy of it for free.
In addition, due to the incredible amount of support we've received, we
decided to set a couple of stretch goals. Stretch Goal $5,000.00

After doing the math, we figured out that if we reach $5,000.00 we can
improve the card stock to a slightly thinner card stock that is easier to
shuffle, and has a silk-stock finish that used in popular trading card
games. Stretch Goal $7,500.00

Like the header states, if we reach this level of funding, we will produce
a Lushootseed Pronunciation Podcast!

Jonathan, Jeanette, and Tylor

Of course, it's the second stretch goal that I really want.  :D

Next week there will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, November 7 with a theme of "Outlandish Occupations." Mark your calendars, and I hope to see you then.

Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies.  Stylet comes out of the shower.  "The Higher a Monkey Climbs" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Pips and Jules discuss what to get for G and Joshua after the fire. 

We got a little rain last night.  The weather has been cold. We used the woodstove for a while and now have the furnace on because we have guests for Samhain.  Currently blooming: dandelions, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, firecracker plant, morning glories, frost asters.  The harvest is almost done.
