AAUGH and the holiday season

The old AAUGHmobile and I were in a collision a couple weeks back, so say “hi” to the new AAUGHmobile. It’s white with black highlights, so it looks a mite like Snoopy! Meanwhile, I’ve got a fractured wrist, making typing a bit hard, so I’m just summarizing my full usual …


End of the blog Twitter feed

This is the final post to go out on the blog’s twitter feed. Please go to to find other ways you can follow the blog. (Sorry, folks, but the modern Twitter is just something that I need to pull away from.)


AAUGH Blog’s Twitter feed to end

The Twitter account with links to each new blog post will soon be closing down. I apologize to the handful of people who are using that to follow the posts here, but doing anything that provides free content for and encourages people to use that service have become untenable. For …

The transition to the new system sending out the blog by email is complete. And to clear up some confusion – everyone who was getting the blog by email on the old system has been transitioned to the new one; no new sign-up is needed. And I’ll take advantage of …


Changing email feeds

I’m having to switch the service that handles sending out the blog to email subscribers. Those of you getting this by mail will, if all is working (fingers crossed) see this post in your emailbox twice, once from each service. Once I see that that is working, I will remove …


Officially unofficial

I just stumbled across as link to referring to it as “the official Peanuts website.” Boy, no. I doubt any of the regular readers are harboring that illusion, but in case you are: this site is independently owned and operated. It does not operate under the control, approval, or …


Index to A Charlie Brown Christmas

If you’ve ever visited my online museum of the various editions of books adapting A Charlie Brown Christmas, you may have found it a long journey to get to anywhere. In the years since I stared it, I’ve added so many editions (there’s over 60 there now) that if you just …
