Hi guys, Packing Day #1 is here. Just cleaned up the email and the April webstats are up (been meaning to get around to that for a week now.) New record, almost 2000 visits this past month to various parts of the domain; almost 100 visitors on April 19 (actually 96 visits); and around 100 people read this 'blog each month. As the Glastonbury Fest gets into gear, more search results for things like Michael Eavis (3) and a bunch of people surfing through my Glastonbury Fest pics from last year. And the usual 65 search results featuring Barbie-something-or-other.

Time to post this entry and get the DanaCam up and running for today.

Well, I guess it's time to spill the beans. Are you sitting down?

I'm moving into Kirstin's house in three weeks.

Yes, you read it right. After eight years of living in teeny tiny bachelor or one bedroom apartments, being the backpacker, and all the rest, I've met the woman who I want to live with. It feels really right! We sort of started bouncing the idea around a little after we got back from the Dominican Republic trip, and one conversation led to another, and so I gave my notice at the end of March that I was giving up my apartment in the heart of the Village. I haven't got around to telling you guys because I've been so busy with the marking and other stuff (see how many 'blog entries I've made in the past five weeks, and you'll see what I mean - a total of two!)

Anyway, you won't see any changes here of course, the Internet being internationally transparent in terms of location. All email and URLs remain the same. If you want my new snailmail address, email me and I'll pass it along.

I guess I'll do my usual "packing up to move" tradition and turn the DanaCam on for the moving days (gad, it's been a while for that, hasn't it?) So, set yourselves up for a special DanaCam Packing Day on Friday, May 9th. I'm not teaching Advanced Standing that day, and it's time I got started with the boxes and stuff. If you've forgotten the URL for the Spotlife DanaCam, it's http://www.spotlife.com/users/danaearth/webcam/ (there's a picture of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer poster up there now.)

So...see you all on May 9th. Oh, if you see me live and want to email me, do so! I'll have Outlook up and running too, listening for that distinctive "eee-oooo" you have mail waiting sound.
