Early July, price, and the ship metaphor

Oil his $145/barrel.

Meanwhile, at home Ceredwyn and I are thinking of our home as a sort of wooden ship, circa 1800. We make do with everything we have on-board, most of the time: our family's skills and muscles, our animals, our crops, what else the land offers. Everything else we get when we're 'in port' - the increasingly rare trips to a town.

I like it. I'll think of it when organizing and navigating my upstairs rooms, which are very small and ship like.

Maybe install a port hole or two... :D
