Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.

File Sharing Legalities

Confused about the legalities of file sharing and downloading on the Internet? Check out Legal Lad’s latest podcast, “Share and Share Alike” in the Gooseberry Lane sidebar. His advice: be very careful when engaging in file sharing activity. The penalty for willful commercial copyright infringement is up to six months in prison and/or a $250,000 fine. For articles that discuss this issue, Legal Lad recommends the following websites:

Recording Industry Association of America
Electronic Frontier Foundation

Have a great Saturday.
