Greetings to all our readers. This the first month that I’ll be taking a visible role in the Gazette– until this point, I’ve been doing all the behind-the-scenes things that are necessary.
Were very excited to have not one, not even two, but six new features from now on. Babs in Toyland by Barbara Mudd, an avowed toy and puzzle buff, is sure to entertain and give great hints for the upcoming Christmas season. Sonic Explorations, our music review, is written with superb style and insight by Bryant Gries. The M@Gazettes publisher and my very own new husband, Dylon Whyte, is the author of Books For Those Busy Signal Blues: what to read when youre waiting to connect to the Internet. This months review is Michael Crichtons Eaters of the Dead. Im thrilled to share one of my favourite recipes with you– Potatoes Roasted in Duck Fat. No wait! Where are you going?! Its not that bad for you!!– in the Every Newspaper Needs a Recipe, Right? Recipe column.
Weve started a section for great sites on the web. Great pages that have impressed us will end up on this list each month. If youve come across a page that deserves notice and recognition, tell us about it! Well list it in our Recommended Sites section next month.
Were especially pleased to announce the addition of Dreemlyn Myths to our repertoire of offerings here at the M@Gazette. Its a series of stories about the fictional land of Dreemlyn, where half-human, half-animal creatures morph from one form to another and have adventures. This months story is about how goats came to live on mountains. These stories are not at all scary and are, IMO, appropriate for audiences of all ages.
We’ve changed the monthly Photo Contest to a full-fledged Photography Gallery, featuring many photos of the island, instead of merely one. Don’t forget to check it out– there are many lovely and familiar sites to see.
