About vermonter

vermonter as a bay-staterI’m not a Vermonter; I was born in Massachusetts. But I have lived here now off and on for forty years, give or take, & I do a lot of different things. I take care of four alpacas, three chickens, four cats and a dog. I write and do contract editorial, data and voice work. I have a little computer support consulting business. I host a two hour call in radio show on Monday mornings whose subtitle could be Conversations With People Who know More Than She Does About Stuff She’s Curious About. I used to be an administrator at a community college; I used to teach at a couple of different (small, private liberal arts; medium-sized state) colleges. Truth to tell, I have long suspected that I am by nature ill-suited to “normal” employment. Which is not to say I can’t work. I love to work. Given free reign over my own schedule, I tend to work as much as 14 or 15 hours a day on various projects — but I also take little naps when i feel like it, and walks with the dog, and alpaca breaks. I haven’t taught anything I ever trained for in school, but I have taught everything I ever did for a living, except typing & animal husbandry. I believe in kindness, good faith & snow days. I think people do the best they can. I love critters, jersey bed-sheets, the Boston Red Sox & Bob Dylan’s music. I make fine pot roast. I remember fondly all but one of my old boy friends. I may already be a winner in the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes.

  1. I really love your new blog. It feels like New England over here and between your blog, David’s, and Joan Harvest’s I can get my much-needed fix. Your whole layout is cool and I really like this new format of getting to know you better. You. are. wicked. cool.
    P.S. Still love your Scout photo. I think it’s the best avatar in our blogosphere.
