We are finishing work on the newly designed website for the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum.  The website will still be accessed via the same URL address:  www.friendsoftheericsloanemuseum.org, but it will be a much, much better site.  Visitors to the site will be able to post information, questions, resources, and ideas as well as to interact with friends board members.  We are all looking forward to it!

Edith and I put the finishing touches on her “Ingall’s cabin” this fall.  Edith has been reading the Laura Ingalls Wilder books and became interested in their pioneer life.  I was able to purchase the complete “Little House on the Prairie” series on DVD (we cut cable TV from our lives shortly after Edith was born) for her to watch on occasion.  We decided to build a playhouse for Edith that closely resembles the Ingall’s cabin in the television show.

Edith’s first decorative piece was to hang the cloud chart that appears below.  Internationally acclaimed meteorologist Jack Borden, who launched the “For Spacious Skies Project”, gave this to Edith during the August 23rd event For Spacious Skies: A Day to Celebrate the Sky! held on the grounds of the Eric Sloane Museum this past summer.
