I used to calculate the beginning of autumn by Sage Journal’s annual ungated content holiday but I got word the other day that it’s open a month early. I shudder to think Winter -my least favorite season- is coming early this year. Go, sign up, poke around. You’ll find some really cool stuff written by professors. There’s not nearly enough technology transference between education and industry so this is your one opportunity this year. Otherwise it costs thousands of dollars. Sage is where I find many obscure factoids.
Oh wait, it occurs to me there’s another kind of holiday this weekend. Labor Day. Boy, if that isn’t ironic in my household. Mr. Fashion-Incubator has officially left his job of 23 years so he can finally move up to Albuquerque. He has no other job prospects (the economy is challenging) so you may be seeing more of him. He’ll probably write entries. Maybe even about sewing. One thing you can count on, the pattern making DVD we shot last year will be forthcoming by Christmas if not sooner.
As ever, listed below are entries published on this site over the past five years. There’s still more in the archives if you have time to read while you relax and enjoy your weekend.
