Warning to fanfic authors!

Boosting the signal and thanks to Juniperus and Juno_magic for the alert.

The small but lively fanfic archive has been snagged up by someone outside of fandom who thinks he can make money with that website.

If you have stories posted there, you may want to consider removing them.

And if you know someone who may have posted there, please let them know about those developments so they can decide if they want to remove their stories ...

And he seems to have bought up a Twilight site, too: -- So if you know someone who posts there and who may not be aware of the situation, please alert them to the fact that someone may well be trying to use that site and their fanfic to make money ...

Please pass this on if you're in LotR fandom or have friends there.

Been awhile!

Been awhile

Life has been hectic and yet slow.

Hectic at work. Change in boss as old boss asked for and got transfer and new boss assigned.

Had been completing going away gift for her:


Sir Dragon Preacher has new pastoral position as well once again. Small UMC church about 36 miles from here. Still keeping fulltime secular job at chicken plant (small church so cannot pay full time salary) but that's okay. The fact he has a church once again has made such a difference and though its more work, doesn't seem so.

Slow has come from the weather.... temps have been over 100 for past 3 or 4 weeks now. I find myself rather listless during daytime hours when it's hot.

Weather had also resulted in a tornado coming through. We came out fine but good friends of ours about 6 miles from us have had tree come down on porch of their house and house moved off foundations about 3 inches which is enough to make it not safe and because the house is 100 yrs old, not repairable.

I have been talked into taking part in the SSHG Exchange on LiveJournal. My piece for it has been completed and submitted :D

Planning to finally take this year's vacation time to travel to Oregon. Though plan trip has been moved from July to August due to some scheduling conflicts.

A very happy five year anniversary to my favorite fiends! You know who you are :)

Well that's a new twist!

Your result for The Sorting Hat Test...


You scored 53% Order/Chaos, and 67% Moral/Rational

Morality with an orderly/chaotic split. You've got a fixed idea of morality, you know that for sure, but your view on regulations waffles. Rules are rules, but you're also able to see when it's really more of a guideline. Your strengths arise from your balanced view of order that allows you to carefully choose strategies for furthering your causes; your weakness is the fact that, given the success your strengths are likely to give you, you may not be receptive to the idea that you are not absolutely in the right.

The 4-grid I used to determine this is as follows:
