New on the blog

Searching for info — Since I started this blog a litle more than a year ago (October 2007), it has grown to a searchable size. If you're looking for a particular post, you can always enter a key word or phrase in the Search box at the top of this page, and then click SEARCH BLOG.

For example, if you want to see all the posts that have something about holidays, scroll down to the labels section to holidays and click.

The result is a "walk-through" reading of the play.
