Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

It's a . . . Small World . . . ?
Actually the world seems kind of impossibly large when you find out that three packages originating from a company in London, and shipped to us were sent to . . . Afghanistan ! Through the miracle of modern technology I was able to see the shipping label and they had everything about our address correct - except instead of USA, it was Cambridge, 02140 AF - and since to UPS, AF is Afghanistan - that's where they sent the boxes. Especially odd as we've been ordering from the company in London for at least five years, and they've always gotten our address right before. It made for a few funny emails anyway - and possibly some confused people in "AF" !
