Explanation. We have a horse on stall rest following colic surgery. This has taken over the blog. Mostly. [Begin]
Week 7 post surgery
Week 1 of paddock rest
This adventure manages to be both stressful and boring. A delightful combination.

Treating myself to lectures as well as books. “Milton’s rehab has involved a fair amount of retail therapy as distraction. I have a horse on stall rest. I deserve this book. And that book. And that one over there.” [Stall Rest Chronicles 11 Feb, and Book Club Blog Hop Announcement]
And this class.
And that one over there.
Next class. US Graham School: The Medieval Book, Class starts 24 March, Registration closes 16 March. Free lecture. US Graham School: Exploring Medieval Manuscripts, Tue., Feb 28, 2023. As before, the lecture is a teaser for the class, but likely to be interesting in its own right. [Blanket Adjustment, SF Class]
Discovered while poking about for related things to read. Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts: Twelve Journeys into the Medieval World, de Hamel, Penguin, 2017. Truth in advertising. While I have immensely enjoyed the first three chapters, I have not finished the book. I’m pushing myself to read other things *cough*TerraIgnonitainfourvolumes*cough* and saving this for closer to the next class.

Do these classes require a webcam, or can you just look and listen?
I do not turn on my video. Lots of folks don’t. You probably have to have some sort of Zoom installed. You could do a test run on a earlier lecture to get the system working before the one you want to hear. There is one on 23 Feb. https://graham.uchicago.edu/events/series/at-graham. Or listen to the lecture recording afterwards. The classes, so far, have all been recorded. Unfortunately, the classes are not cheap. I find it worth it if you calculate the cost per lecture. YMMV
Sigh. Guess I’ll never know. Eowyn’s last batch of tests was over $200 dollars and the oral med that costs $50 is coming in a couple of weeks (the over $150 one isn’t till the start of next month) so anything not essential will be going by the wayside. I’m rereading The Lord of the Rings again, so that’s helpful. I think it’s about 50 times so far.
There’s a lot available online that’s free. Here’s a book history one, https://youtu.be/PHM9fySEvc0
Also free, the lecture in the 28th as well as past lectures from the same place. https://youtube.com/@theuniversityofchicagograh6875
Thank you so much!
