I promise I will get to the second part of that Quaker entry. I had to spend Tuesday twiddling my thumbs downtown answering a jury summons. Just doing some rereading trying to get a handle on how the Quakers and their sympathizers could have ended up so different from the other three folkways that settled over here. I still believe the Irish had a lot to do with it.
And following the news of that horribly devasting quake. It's unimaginable. Gaia shrugs and sometimes devastation follows.
That's all, cat is trying to sit on keyboard.
