My garage is FULL of boxes, as about 100 boxes full of all my stuff from my other home that I shared with Bill. I need to go through them and sort them. I also need to find my jewelry boxes which were in our master bedroom, which is mbr in box language. Most of my books were in my office room which is br2 for boxes. Some of my important papers and geneology research for the family were stacked in Christine's old room, which is BR3. There were crafts and clothing in all three bedrooms, a special cache of new books stored in the tub of our unused bathroom and computer stuff as well as then current business stuff in the built in desk in the hall. I also had storage in the LR and DR --- and books by category in those too.

It was a tad cooler today, high of about 84-F instead of 95-F. I decided to put a couple of hours in going through the boxes in the MBR section. I got through six of them, moved them so that I know they have been looked into and sorted the stuff that was dumped into them. In one I found several of my necklaces, a ring and some earrings just thrown into the box with only one really good silver set having its protective box. That was slow burn time for me. I know who DIDN'T pack that as my main packer is more OCD than I am, so she packs carefully. I sorted and saved the stuff and tomorrow I will tackle that which needs to come in and be evaluated carefully.

Many of the books are nonfiction reference books and my cookbooks or craft books which I DO NOT want to sell. Someone suggested that I might either clean out my smaller shed or get another one for my library. I think I will keep my eyes peeled for a good used shed about the same size as my studio and make it my library. I still have some of the shelves, most of them actually and can store some of the books in boxes until I can get the rest of the needed shelves. There are some books I definitely want to get rid of, mostly novels which I will never read again. There are only a few complete collections by favorite authors that I want to keep or to sell only as a set, even a few I can enjoy reading over again, and again. The writing is that good!

Many of the books are my text books and collection of psychological writings. Those and the poetry I really like to use a lot. I miss being able to go to that section to check one of my favorite psychologists view of a problem. Also, some of my books are just plain funny. I like to be able to go the the shelves and get the book I want, even if it is on the back row. I organize my books so that it is generally easy to find what I want by subject first and author second for nonfiction and by collection or author for the fiction. A shed for a library would be great, especially if I can air condition it and put a reading lamp and comfy chair in it too. A place to read away from the phone, cats, doorbell, TV, ahhhh.

In my search for the jewelry boxes getting six or seven boxes gone through and eliminated is a big step too. I also got some caught up on my vow to do a box a day. I got caught up for the whole week. Yea me! I am deservedly, very tired tonight, watching the Gator game in the Swamp on CBS. As weird as this game is, and I think the Gators are going to lose it, I may just go back to the create channel. LOL Have a great Sunday! Peace -----Elen

I don't know what the best way is to out someone who abuses another offline when both are involved in online communities. I know that I agree with Ravan when she states that for B to tell in an online post of the abuse by A offline and then everybody pile on A for a trial by net is not the best way. It is too easily abused and leads to condemnation of A far and wide but doesn't have the checks and balances to prevent overkill that exist in offline systems such as the legal system.

Still, it is important for the online community to know that A is a bad actor so that A does not end up with undeserved kudos from the online community. What I do know is that the way it was done between Moofable and Keeva begot a ton of drams and didn't seem right to me.

All I see got accomplished was a whole bunch of hurt all around. I don't think anyone ended up happy with the result or comforted either, for that matter. Yes, there was a lot of discussion. Other than that I still saw nothing really accomplished.

There has to be a better way. I just don' know what it is.

What I do know is that I'm tired. I see nothing getting accomplished either. That means I'm done with it. I'll just have to ruminate on it for a while. Maybe, in time, something will pop up. For now, I think I've said all I can say on the subject. Peace ---Ellen

UPDATE: I went back over the journals of B and C and I now see that there really isn't any other way Jack could get the word out about Kynn in order to warn the online community. I was wrong to think that there was. I still don't like it, and I see no way around it.

My sense of fairness and outrage over rape of any kind by anyone has been at war with my absolute hate of trial by Internet. When I went back over everything with a completely open mind, I see exactly what Jack wants and why he has to out the rape on the net. He has not asked for people to punish Kynn, just that they be aware of her behavior, that she is a rapist, and her behavior is out of sync with her claims of being such a great feminist. That others took the information and dumped on Kynn is not Jack's fault. Nor did he ask for that to happen.

Therefore I sincerely apologize to Jack for my comments. He was right, as was Alexandraerin. They did not ask for the overkill toward Kynn, just that people be aware and not give her kudos as a feminist because of the way she manipulated others and the fact that she did not live as a feminist, but, instead, had raped Jack at Wis-Con quite recently. The knee-jerk reaction of others was and is on them, not on Jack and not on Alexandra. Peace ---Ellen

I am very tired. This sinus stuff is still there and may be headed for my chest. I don't need this. It means that I likely won't be able to get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning to go over to Interlachen to the Methodist church breakfast and yard sale. I could likely sell of at least one set of golf clubs and some books and jewelry, maybe even some of my crochet stuff if I were to go and the booth fee is only $5. It's a good deal! I just don't know if I will have the oomph to do it at an air temperature of 47 degrees or lower! That is temperature that also wreaks havoc with my knee, back, shoulder and wrist where I've had surgeries, not to mentions everywhere I still am riddled with osteo-arthritis. Bah Humbug! It's just that I need the money I might earn so very badly and I need the exposure to let folk know that I am still here and actively making items. That way they will know to look for me at the Lions Breakfast and there again next month.

Oh well, it is time to make some more jewelry and get to work photographing it and fixing up my site at to reflect the new things I have made. I have some new crosses done already and expect to get the things I need to make the rest any day now in the mail. I need to make this Holiday season a very successful one to finally be caught up on all my bills and maybe even get a good start on another vehicle. Later! Peace, Love and hugs----Ellen a.k.a. jemyl
