Looking for someone!

I'm sorta-kinda caught up on most of my backlog of older emails, but I haven't been able to find one particular email I've been looking for.

Several months ago a woman who runs a homesteading-type blog in Alaska emailed with some kind words. Usually if I don't get a chance to answer someone right away, I keep their email in bold font so I can go back and answer later. If I un-bold an email, it often gets lost.

Well, I must have un-bolded this email, because I simply cannot find it for the life of me.

So -- if you run a homesteading blog in Alaska, and you contacted me before but never got an answer, would you please drop me another email at ??

UPDATE: I should probably have mentioned that this mystery blog is NOT Frontier Freedom. Jenny and I are cyber-pals and have emailed each other quite a bit. Nope, it's another blogger.


  1. Patrice:
    I think this is the person you may be looking for,
    as I followed her blog regularly. She hasn't posted anything since June 7th, and as far as I can see hasn't responded to the comments section.

    Hope this helps,

  2. Patrice,

    I don't know if this is the site or not but I remember a Alaskan homesteader blog that I think I found here. The blog address is

    She hasn't posted anything for a few months. It sounded from her site like they were having some electrical troubles and she wasn't spending much time online.

    There is an email link on her blog.

    Don't know if its who your looking for but I hope it's a decent lead.

  3. Hi, Patrice,

    Could it be: ?


  4. LOL! I'm sorry I can't help, but I'm hugely pleased for the link to jenny. I was about to go hunting for it and here it is. I love how that works. lol So thank you!

    Next I need to go back and study hotb's sticky ancient piano key remedy. If my good fortune holds maybe I'll log in soon and find you've posted a 'secrets to life with an ancient piano' update with new discoveries and healing techniques!

  5. A. McSp, if you find the secret to a sticky piano key, PLEASE let me know. We too have an ancient piano (made in 1906) which we love and which Older Daughter plays beautifully, but it has a few keys that stick, especially this time of year.

  6. Patrice, when you said a few keys stick, especially this time of year, it made me think your problem could be humidity making those keys swell slightly. Here's a website I found that should help you clear up your problem:
    --All my best, Fred M.

  7. Patrice is the blog you are looking for The Last Frontier?

  8. Not quite, Miss Violet. The Frontier Freedom site and The Last Frontier blog are the same family. But thank you!
