1600th Post

I started this blog a little over 10 years ago in February 2007. Tonight I hit 1600 published posts. My goal has been to share information about Laura Ingalls Wilder, one-room schools, food history, and social history in general. I focus on helping to push out information I find and to create new material. 

The blog is called Sarah’s Notebook within Trundlebed Tales. I took the name from Editor’s Notebook from the editor of Food History News because I loved that publication. I picture it as a real notebook with each blog post a page of things I want to tell people about or find again. In addition to my main topics, I add a scattering of tech tips, book and movie reviews, and quotes in general. So browse around you never know what you’ll find.

From my first post to this one, I hope that you’ve found my blog useful and interesting. I want to thank everyone who has read along and I hope that you will continue to – note the number on the drafts, I’ve still got a lot to say.

October 2017 Presentations

October tends to be when things start to wind down for the year. We have fewer presentations and events, but we still will have one more burst for the Christmas season in November and the first week of December.

Trading Card 2017

The mentions that Sarah Uthoff and Trundlebed Tales got during the month of August 2017. I’ve got two news stories one with a lovely photograph of me at the Ingalls Homestead and an article I wrote for a journal.

Newton Daily News. “Laura Ingalls Wilder at the Newton Library.” Newton Daily News. 2 Aug. 2017. http://www.newtondailynews.com/2017/07/27/laura-ingalls-wilder-at-the-newton-library/a5hpe0z/ Accessed 4 Aug. 2017.

NOTE: ALHFAM stands for Association of Living History Farms and Museums, a professional international organization for people who do living history. They had a problem with a switch in editors and so this edition actually came out in August 2017.

UPDATED September 21 2017: I added the link to the food allergies article when it became available on the ALHFAM website.
