Strangely, a number of my posts now say that they were written by another author. All posts on this site were written by me, Naomi Montacre... often in the wee hours.. and we're not sure if someone has hacked our site or ? eeps! - okay, we have removed the author 'Posted by' link on our site. We'd like to move the site to Wordpress, but that might not happen until a quieter time of year.

More books are on order, migrating westward, lots of chicken, livestock and well.... a lot of books we think you'll be delighted to peruse : )

Post will be tinkered with more!
