About me

I live in the Appalachian mountains in SW Virginia, though I grew up and lived much of my life in New England. I sell unusual and/or rare books for a living, with a little Internet entrepeneurship on the side. I have two incredible free-thinking children just entering their teenage years (scary). I live on a small farm which only grows books and weeds, though we do have a middle-aged pony-mule that the neighbors call our lawn ornament. I’m interested in just about everything, which has always been my blessing and my curse.

    Sounds wonderful where U live. We just bought ourselves a cottage out in the country. Nature and away from Big Cities is really the only way to live.

    Re “The murky History of JC Bancroft…” did you publish this piece in a longer form, which included your description of seeking out and reading (UVa Law Library?) the original copy of the legislation?

    I read it somewhere, and very much want to retrieve a copy of the entire piece you wrote. Where did you publish the complete text?

    Thanks –

  4. Greetings from Australia. You helped me with my university assignment. Thank so much.

  5. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didnt appear. Grrrr well Im not writing all that over again. Anyway, just wanted to say superb blog!

  6. About your children. It does not get less scary as they go through college, get jobs and marry. Then you acquire new in-laws and grandchildren. You find out your children in law are not what you would have chosen. And then your grandchildren are not looked after the way you cared for your children.
    But then, look on the bright side. Sorry, can’t tell you. You have to find your own.
    Maybe it does not get less scary, but it also gets better. That’s my bright side.
