The hall at Camp Sheppard, the site of the CITR Retreat.


Behind the scenes in the underground Chickens in the Road laboratory, we are busy little bees preparing for the CITR Retreat 2011. It’s a task of monumental proportions. We have our superpower capes on.

This is your first heads up! It’s nearly March. Registration will begin soon and space is limited. I will post again to remind you. Keep your eyes peeled. The CITR Retreat 2011 is COMING!

    “Keep your eyes peeled.” Where did that expression come from anyway? Ouch. :)

    WOTP, here’s more than you wanted to know :yes:
    Spelt peeled, as in peeling an apple. It derives from an old verb pill, “to plunder”, which is the root of our modern word pillage. It came to us from the Latin root pilare, meaning “to take the hair off, pluck” (closely connected with our depilate), but which also had the figurative meaning of “plunder, cheat”, almost exactly the same as the figurative meaning of our modern verbs fleece or pluck. From about the 17th century on, pill was commonly spelt peel and took on the sense of “to remove or strip” in the weakened sense of removing an outer covering, such as a fruit. The figurative sense of keeping alert, by removing any covering of the eye that might impede vision, seems to have appeared in the US about 1850.

    dede :happyflower:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
