Myth and Mountain Birthdays (Repost)
My birthday was always the coldest day of the year. If not literally true, it was family legend, and everyone knows that myth is much stronger than meteorology, even in the north country, where the snow lies deep on the mountaintops, and houses are built to keep the heat in, not out.
So begins my essay from 1999, "Myth and Mountain Birthdays."

OUTLANDER TV Series News
Want to read selected news items about the Outlander TV series? My Webmistress and I list selected stories about the series in my Outlander TV Series News Page. Since good articles can get lost on social media posts, this list is an ongoing compilation and record of the history of the series, and is also very useful to those who don’t use Facebook or Twitter.
No, it’s not an all-inclusive list of each and every story that has come out to date about the series. If you want that, just use your favorite search engine.
