Five things on a Friday

supposed to die

  1. Just learned that one of my ancestors was charged with "pig bewitchment" in 1656.  He was found not guilty. So I am one of the few people who can definitely say I am NOT descended from a pig bewitcher.

  2. If you are looking for a free way to make your own website, I highly recommend Weebly.com.  I update mine all the time.  So nice not to have to go through someone.

  3. 1480665_552497488169058_1899979008_nIt was so cold on my run this morning! 24 and blowing snow. Found myself wishing for a baclava, then realized I meant balaclava. Thank goodness wishes aren't granted. Like what if I wished for a neck gaiter but got the wrong kind?

  4. I feel like I am behind on everything: email, two book deadlines, sorting out my parent's stuff.

  5. At the same time, I need to make more time for reading. It's one of my greatest pleasures, so why I am trying to live on 20 minutes a day?

"Not Guilty of Pig Bewitchment" would make a great name for a record album/CD/whatever we have now.

Wonder if the pig testified in his behalf?

His accuser had thrown the pig's ears and tail into a fire and from that was able to deduce that the pig was bewitched. I feel sorry for the pig.

Pseudo-science, hysteria, and a lust to prosecute are always a bad combination ...
