Now Monarch Caterpillars!

There are monarch caterpillars eating away on some of the common milkweed plants growing around the place. They may not be many in number but I am glad to help these beautiful butterflies out a little.

Maybe I Found the Shop Problem

The disconnect between my Shop and PayPal is solved. It left the old problem of my Shop not making the download available.

When all else fails, read the directions. I went to the set up tutorials. They mentioned a page I hadn’t seen with an important setting on it.

After searching through my Shop set up pages, I found the page and corrected the setting. The Shop should now, according to the directions, be functioning correctly.

Now I will look the Shop over and do a little sprucing up and house cleaning.

Exploring Botany

One of the questions I need to answer is where to put these botany books. That means rethinking the Menu options. Perhaps Fiction and Nonfiction spots for sample pages?

Dr. Richard Rintz consulted herbarium sheets when researching his books on The Syrian Milkweed and Discovering the Floral Biology of Aristolochia. Both are books using translations of botanical papers. One is the story of how the Common Milkweed growing in North America came to be called the Syrian Milkweed. The other is the historical view of finding about pipevines or Aristolochia with lots of illustrations.

These books are listed on Amazon for author Dr. Richard Rintz. I hope to add them to my Shop soon with much more information about them. When the Shop gets redone so it works once more. Sigh.

Book Sample Pages!

A pdf of free sample pages from all of my books are available under My Books on the menu.


Visit me at: http://www.pinterest.com/karengoatkeeper. I try to keep up with nine boards on nature, my books, country living, gardening, my cats, my goats and the science projects. Take care or you may spend hours browsing as Pinterest is a very interesting place to visit.

Visit me at: Goodreads. I write a short weekly blog on some aspect of writing my books. It is a great place to meet new authors, established authors and people who like to read.

Although I try to pretend every day has about 40 hours, a day really has only 24 hours. So I have no Facebook or Twitter accounts.

I do updates on Wednesday afternoons. Occasionally weather or other difficulty delays this. And I tend to take the last week of the year off.

The Project Corner is for those interested in Science.

The Outside Project is closed for the year.

The Outside Project wonders: Can you do this? Can you put a layer of hot water on top of a layer of cold water? Is this even possible?

The Project will resume in September. The topic is again simple physics.

Goat Galleries

The My Kids pictures are starting up. A few at a time and all the goat pictures will appear.
