  1. Hi Marilyn,

    Your blog is on my list of 14 sites that I check each morning and we have exchanged a few emails. I always look forward to your posts. Today I was surprised to see a link to some things that I wrote some years ago. You called the link "An Ode to the Before Times Or are we losing our minds?" I'm not sure what that means.

    I have always been a researcher and I wrote those back when I thought that somebody might be interested in what I was learning about. Apparently not since most of the posts have less that 100 views in 5-10 years. I don't have a problem with that and have continued learning and researching. I just don't write things up anymore.

    Back then I was still teaching at university and had access to most academic journals. It really is criminal how hard it is for regular people to access the knowledge of the world.

    Happy holidays. I hope you, your family and friends are all well and enjoying the season.
