378 Year Random Eleven
Below, you'll see I was going to post a story 3-1/2 years ago about this family farm in New Hampshire. It never went beyond "draft" form because a number of months earlier I had sort of abandoned putting together blog posts here altogether. I didn't intend to NEVER post again, but hey it got away from me.
Tonight I went to leave a comment on a relative's blog, and had to sign in through Google, and so I guess it identified me as Don the Blogger. Out of a strangely sharp sense of curiosity I visited my own blog, feeling sort of like I was visiting a forgotten childhood home or something.
OK next, scrolling through my long list of unpublished tidbits, I saw the story of the family farm up for sale in New Hampshire, after running continuously since 1632:
"Hate seeing stories like this...
I read the article from 2010 and then googled the farm to see when it was finally sold. It just sold 3 weeks ago! Huh. See, I haven't missed much.
Oh, and furthermore...
Back in 2010 I was publishing a "Random 11" songs I had heard that day on Pandora or wherever. This article was apparently going to be one of those. So OK:
