Welcome to the new look of the Newsdumpster. Sadly, everything else is the same.
I decided to combine the October and November Newsdumpsters because (1) our old newsletter service ceased operations at the end of September, (2) we could use the excuse that our old newsletter service ceased operations at the end of September as an excuse for being really late with this Newsdumpster while taking care of next month's issue, too, (2) hang on, we just did (2) and (3) I really like really, really long, repetitive, confusing, silly, run-on sentences that we tend to like as much as many of (5) really gerbils since we added one or fewer additional services.
We're still getting used to having room for actual, not imaginary, guests; we've had friends from California, England and Pennsylvania, as well as our assorted parents from Boston. And we've hired competent people to replace two of our barn's three garage doors with insulated walls in furtherance of it becoming a modest recording studio someday. In the meantime, that insulation will save us a ton in heating costs during our four-month 2019 Further West Tour, which will begin in early December 2018.
I forgot to include a bullet-pointed list in this Newsdumpster. Since my themes are pretty awful anyway, I thought I'd dispense with that formality in this issue and go straight to the list:
• The days are getting shorter in Vermont; in New Zealand, however, they are getting longer. Coincidence? I think not. • Though we are advocates for gun control, this newsletter service does not appear to offer bullet points, which is going about it the wrong way. • There are several varieties of tea. • We have many friends in the Florida Panhandle and we feel really bad about what happened to them in Hurricaine Michael. * If you ride your bike twice, does it count as recycling? • No matter how many years you've lived outside the city, when you stomp on the floor, you still worry that you're bothering somebody downstairs.
