E-MAIL – me at
All spam will be completely and pointedly ignored.

SNAIL MAIL – If you are sending physical objects (like a box of brownies) send them to:
Doug Bittinger 1198 Piney Mountain Road Newport TN 37821
(Note that we are NOT actually in Newport, we’re in the mountain-side community of Edwina, but the Newport P.O. delivers our mail so they force us to adopt them for addressing of mail.)

DROP ON BY – Visitors are welcome but it is best to arrange a date and time to be sure I am here and not in the middle of something I’d rather not interrupt… and so I can secure the vicious, horrible, man-eating dogs (they’re not really, but they try to sound that way). If you decide to just pop by while I’m gardening, for example (and are not licked to death by the dogs), expect to be handed a hoe and be put to work while we talk. 🙂
