AfterElton officially changed over to The Backlot. So much content was lost when the forums disappeared. There aren't any more private messages, either, and I don't think you can even leave feedback for the people you follow. I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to use it. Apparently I'm not the only one. I managed to follow The_Fixer and Octobercountry. I can't figure out how to follow Donuthead or Jax, but they have my e-mail.
The "Gay Books" forum seems to have made a pretty good transition over to Goodreads. It's already pretty busy. I more than doubled my amount of buddies there in a day or two, when I'd had about four for a couple of years.
I went out to the yard briefly. Something ate all the flowers off one of the geraniums. The winter honeysuckle is still doing well, and I think the lily-of-the-valley will be blooming in a few weeks. We used some of the dill I'd planted on the fish we had for dinner. The chocolate mint is filling up the white rectangular windowbox-style container it's in.
A. and I are texting. We'll likely chat later tonight.
S.M. called and we talked for a bit. The garden club convention is in a few days.
Later: A. and I talked for a couple of hours.
