Mailchimp's free option has a cap on sends -- not only how many email addresses you can send at a time (which I knew) but how many you can send, cumulatively (which I didn't know). Even the lowest paid Mailchimp option is more than I need. And since reading this blog is free, writing it should be free, too. I am still receiving emails for blogs I subscribe to, but I don't know how long that will ...

I used to see a lot of planeurs (gliders or sailplanes) in the sky above our neighborhood each summer. Since the pandemic, of course, none. Same for hot-air balloons, except I did see one or two in the distance this past spring. The gliders fly in giant circles around warm thermals, sometimes four or five at a time. It's like a silent ballet in the sky. Un planeur, 2006. Bert stayed out until about ten-thirty last night. When he came in, he had another mouse. Mmmmm. Tasty. [Author: wcs]
