Well, I've done it. My first column for Vermont Views magazine just left my screen and went to my new editor, Phil Innes. Yes, he's some relation but we haven't figured that out yet. It's not close enough to be nepotism anyway. He knows the nastier stories about the family that I heard when I was a kid, so we're related somehow. And he's from the auld sod, too. As for the column, I'm not sure but I think it will appear tomorrow (meaning Friday on the US east coast) at
(and yeah, "Stones of Years" is an ELP reference- from "Tarkus"). This first column is about why I joined Fecebook and why I'm going away now, a rewrite from this here blog. In 2 weeks I'll have a fresh column done. No idea what that'll be about, though I'm thinking towards GMO Frankenfoods and Obama giving Monsanto a free pass just yesterday... we'll see.
So. I'm excited and scared and happy. Who knows how or where this will go. It's a ride. :)
