"'You don't need to use the woodstove unless it gets bitterly cold. The firewood bin is there in the hallway, and you'll find a woodshed at the back. The house has been unlived-in this autumn. The electric heaters are usually sufficient. Just make sure you don't hang any clothes on them, or it may start a fire.'
Blomkvist looked around. Windows faced three different directions, and from the kitchen table he had a view of the bridge, about a hundred feet away. The furnishings in the kitchen included three big cupboards, some kitchen chairs, an old bench, and a shelf for newspapers. On top was an issue of See from 1967. In one corner was a smaller table that could be used as a desk."

Several years ago, the incredibly impressive Eden Kennedy of Fussy.org founded "NaBloPoMo," or National Blog Posting Month, where participants are challenged to post every day for the month of November. I don't usually participate since I'm pretty good about blogging on a regular schedule, but this year I thought I'd give it a try. This is pure madness, of course, because I have some travel coming up and a somewhat crazy schedule, but what the hey -- let's give it a go. Starting yesterday, I will have new content on this site every day, including weekends, through November 30th. What I lack in quality, by gum, I will make up in quantity.
