Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

Fair Week '06

Aloha all! I'm hoping that everyone had a great Labor Day and enjoyed the long weekend. Labor Day was great for me! I went down to Cinci and visited fellow B5 Naashom and also B6 Emily for the day. We checked out the Ohio River, made earrings (Naashom and her mom are crafty folks) and talked a ton. It was so nice to joke about stuff that only a PC/Bangladesh Volunteer would get. And to whip out the Bangla, shake it off and see if anyone still understands you. I have a bad feeling that my Bangla (as poor as it was) has a limited time span, so I'd better enjoy and use it while I can.

The Hardin County Fair is going on right now. Cousin Jamie Jo's kids are showing goats, rabbits and horses. Petite Shelby said that last year she showed two draft horses driving a showcart! She is just a tiny bird of a girl! I don't know how she does it, but it is amazing that those kids can do what they do.

As for other stuff in the news.... check out Princess Megan's story in the Chicago local news: You go, girl!
