I decided to register my name and squat on it until I have an idea on what to do with the site.  I have been online since 1993 or so, and had my own weblog since 1999.  Much of the things I have written over the years have been cast to the four winds.  I started writing Terrapin Gardens as a personal blog in 1999, then when I married Sarah Scully in 2002 it became our joint blog.  When we started sheep farming in 2008, we re-branded Terrapin Gardens as our farm and company name.  Meanwhile we were food blogging on  In 2013 we closed Terrapin Gardens as a sheep farm and started to focus on crafts, whether they were fiber, food or beer, and so we started Gage Hill Crafts.  The site you are reading will likely become my personal spot to babble on either in public or private, and perhaps share a bit of the various interests I have that don’t fit in those other spaces.  Welcome to my world.
