Bits and Pieces

Indexing progresses on Pensaukee: Voice of a Landscape. But with my tax job can only hope to have the print copy available by end of March. Cover artist Adam Reinhard committed to the cover! I have to send him a blurb. How does this sound:
We all know humans change the natural landscape but how, why, to what extent? Here in one book you will witness the progression, starting with the land itself, to native American Indians living on the land that were encountered by earliest Europeans, how those early trade efforts went and how the land grab began. You'll witness the land here through the industries of logging, fur trade, fishing and farming. You'll see how nature fights back. Welcome to a small town that could be any town, USA, but this one is in Wisconsin, a state half sheltered by great waters. Welcome to Pensaukee, home of the first commercial sawmill west of the Great Lakes, now a national historic site.
Got an email that the filming schedule will commence on Silent Hope, a movie that is part documentary on the history and treatment of Autism. If you can donate, the link is on my Facebook page.
Am planning an article on George Wallace. Who shot him and why? He was featured for his appearance in Wisconsin in '72 and decision to run for president. He would well be one of those white supremacists behind the killing of two Kennedys and a King.
Northern Wisconsin Copper Artifact Manual is progressing. I have only a few more sources to read and then a final edit of the book. I'm hoping for early April on this one.
Still no word from the publisher on my archaeology murder myself. I do plan another edit, soon!
Started a new play called "Last Curtain" but it's going to be a series of scenes that I thread together. Happy for what we call the editing process!
Am happily volunteering at Janesville Performing Arts Center. Will have to give them another day this weekend, if possible.
