Getting set to launch a Kindle version

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

We’re gearing up to launch a Kindle version of the magazine. The first one will probably be the Jan/Feb 2012 issue. I think this, as well as a Nook version and ipad’s eBooks, is the future. We monkeyed around with a digital magazine launch a year or so ago but after six months of work we realized that our current website was far better than any digital version. But Kindle makes a lot of sense. It’s easy for the reader to use, easy for BHM to format for, and it has both protection from pirates and a reasonable profit margin. It will open up the entire English-speaking world to BHM. With our superior content, we’ll do well with very little financial risk.

Not an earthquake in Washington, but our founding fathers rolling over in their graves

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

You’ve probably already heard Washington D.C. had a 5.8 earthquake yesterday. Someone posted on Facebook: “Don’t worry, it wasn’t an earthquake. It was just our founding fathers rolling over in their graves.”

A day at Deep Creek

Sunday, August 21st, 2011

My daughter and boys grew up swimming in places with names like Deep Creek and Secret Swimming Hole on Pistol River near our home in southern coastal Oregon. Today we went to Deep Creek, an isolated spot several miles up Pistol River. There were only two families there, one of which we knew and the other, with four small kids, we got to know. Deep Creek is a friendly place.

The boys swim in Deep Creek. It is small and isolated, with pockets of deep, clear, cool water. You get used to the cool water

The tree was moved in place by high water since last year. The can see the 15 feet to the bottom through the crystal clear water.

I swam a bit with my old dog, Molly, then jumped off the log with the boys.

The shores abound in delicious blackberries.

Deep Creek is about as pretty as it gets anywhere on earth.

Lenie takes a break with Molly. Both went swimming.
