IN MY WORLD
I bought an LCD cable for my Acer Aspire One computer. I painstakingly disassembled the entire Netbook to get to the display where the LCD cable lives. I compared it to the new one the company sent me and they were obviously different and I realized they had sent me the wrong one. Sigh. I reassembled the whole thing to find that the display was now worse than before, rendering it completely useless. I’m looking for another Acer Aspire One for parts if anyone has one, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Next week I have a new baby Boer goat coming to replace the one that died a month or so ago. She’s about 6 or 7 weeks old but is still on the bottle. This will be my first time bottle feeding a goat. Wish me luck!

Reading and Discussion with Sydney Lea
Monday, February 10 at 7:30 pm
Described as “a man in the woods with his head full of books, and a man in books with his head full of woods,” noted writer and environmentalist Syd’s work appeals to both hunters and huggers, and everyone in between. Syd’s most recent books are I Was Thinking of Beauty, his tenth poetry collection, and A North Country Life: Tales of Woodsmen, Waters and Wildlife, a collection of essays about his connection to the northern outdoors, many of which are set in and around Grand Lake Stream, where he has a camp. In 2012, he was designated a “Conservation Hero” by Field and Stream magazine, and a previous poetry collection, Ghost Pain, was one of three finalists for the Pulitzer Prize. He founded The New England Review, and has held teaching posts at Middlebury, Wesleyan, and Dartmouth. He lives in Vermont, where he currently serves as the state’s poet laureate. Free and open to the public at UCCPA.
