Kari's Lair: Home of the Virgo Folkie

Kari's Lair: Fáilte Isteach!

HI ALL! This is my new Homepage/Cave/Lair.

At the moment, it is still under construction, but I hope it will soon be a fun place and music/writing promotion tool. If it doesn't crash somehow, or I forget my password to get into this thing.

Be sure to check out the links on this homepage (and I hope their originators don't mind my linking to them!)

Today, June 20, 2001, is the birthday of this site. May it have many more anniversaries.

--Karen I. Olsen

The Lair's eStores: Our Official Cafepress LairShops!

NEWSFLASH (WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2009): LairCronies, a new PromoLair has just been Excavated! After thinking about it Awhile, we decided to start up a blog that promotes our Cafepress LairShops (in lieu of a CP newsletter), and have it Attached, more or less, to the Home Lair at Angelfire. The blog will promote the LairShops; now we have to get Going like gangbusters and promote the blog! It's called The LairShops Beckon.

In the process of Dredging out this PromoLair, we learned a thing or two about what they call "Advanced Customization" (that thing they don't really let you do with free LJs). We are learning how to tweak the Stylesheets, the code for Main page entries, the LairLinks sidebar, and such like. We just put up our first two posts in the past couple of days; now we have to alert the Entire planet to the existence of this thing; and by extension, the LairShops! Just click on the image Below, or the text link Above, to check it out...

But some people dig that stuff.

they're also fairly flat)

Finding Out Where I Come From (Hint: It Has Better Scenery Than Seattle!)

TUESDAY, MAY 3, 2022: Good afternoon, LairLurkers! Did I ever mention that, although my family background is mostly Scandinavian, I have never set foot in Scandinavia? I often mentioned to my late Mom that I wanted to visit Norway and Sweden one of these days, only to have her respond, "Everything is so Expensive over There!" To which I would respond, "I don't care! I still wanna go There!" Well, since I inherited my half of my dear old Mum's estate, I have been hard at work at both: 1) clearing out old debts, including my student loan balance; and 2) planning a long-Awaited trip to Scandinavia! Until about a year Ago, I hardly dared to dream of such a journey; now I've got the whole thing Booked, including a round-trip flight that changes planes in Iceland, both Coming and Going!

[TO BE CONTINUED...]

Anyway, here Again are some new Antiwar and other Progressive LairLinks that have crossed our path Recently, as well as some old favorites from Before--Newly Updated (note new URLs for some orgs)! Alas, the Iraqi Information Minister site finally bit the dust a while Back. He probably still regrets that we are too far Removed from reality...

The lovely Celtic circle at the top of this page (and the turquoise cross atop the Goals 2001 Page) comes to us courtesy of the Free Celtic Clipart Page at Ireland-Information.com. For the best in free Celtic clipart, do pay them a visit!

Likewise, the LairMistress has had great fun with the cool animated graphics provided free of charge by The Animation Factory--as you can see, I've got animated critters all over the Lair by now! At least one new animated critter is birthed on their site every day! Check them out at the LairLink above!
