July DIY - and family emergency
Hi again folks,
With shipping almost complete, we've been looking forward to getting back on digital rewards delivery. I've been working on a DIY update for you, a solar dehydrator from the AT course. And we also had a really wonderful time signing books and giving talks and hands-on demos at the Mother Earth News Faire in West Bend, WI
However, on our long-awaited arrival home, we got the news that Ernie's mother is suffering from a serious new downturn in her battle against cancer. So now we are away from home again, trying to connect the dots so she can have enough in-home care to keep going, and in pretty sorry condition for professional business. Apologies to those still waiting for rewards we intended to send out this month. I do not think I will publish a DIY update about home care for cancer patients - it's not that fun.
Today I'm sending individual messages to those backers affected by unsent or returned books. I have asked for help shipping the last couple of cases to our long-suffering Canadian and International backers.
I am also going to send out those DIY plans, even though they're not as polished as I might prefer. We look forward to your comments. Please keep an eye on your email inboxes for another email from that newscpt bulk-mailing service. I will put it out as soon as possible this week.
Additional digital rewards, including the Greenhouse plans and other as-built drawings for those who ordered them, will be next on my list. I'm looking at using our online store, www.scubbly.com, for those deliveries since it is easier to customize for individual purchasers. So please white-list that email as well.
