  1. Ran across this blog today:

    It appears that the last entry was in 2010, and there was an indication of ill health, although reading down a bit, she doesn’t appear to be all that old. So why she discontinued, I don’t know – the indication seems to be that she had taken a break and was starting again. I’m only adding the link because it seemed to me that her entry on some of the differences between north and south (she is a New Jersey girl transplanted to North Carolina) might be as entertaining to you as it is to me. I’ve only read a dozen or so of her entries, but it’s light and easy to read, so I’ve put it on my list. I think you might find it entertaining as well, if you have time for some light reading after studying for your Ham radio tests!!

    1. I skimmed a bit.

      Oh oh.

    2. I did see the diffs btw North & South and she was on the money.

      Here’s the sad thing. Wonder if the decision to not take her blog down was deliberate or just no one thought to do it? I think the dot wordpress is the free platform version, so no subscription to re-up. Maybe they’re keeping it up so the little fellow can read it?

      1. That would be a good thing.

        58. Funny how things change as I get older. Once upon a time, I would have thought 58 was pretty good age for end of life. Almost 60. Now it seems young to die.
