Index of 2020

Hello, 2020!  As always, I like to do a blog index, sorted by topic and then listed chronologically.  As before, a few posts will fit into different sections and may be listed twice.  Hope you find this useful!


We will start, as always with the biggest set, posts on Formaldehyde, Prop65 and other chemical-related topics:

Formaldehyde, Indoor Air Quality, Prop65, Chemophobia and more…

Then let’s look at posts with definitions:

Terminology Time

Next, how about posts on Lacey and Legality?

Lacey and other Legality Laws and Issues

The logical next grouping would be posts regarding forests, forestry and specific species around the world.

More on the Forests

Next come posts on technical topics—like finishing or hardness or DNA.  Note that some of these are great resources for legality and forest monitoring. 

Getting Technical 

I restructured a bit from last year.  So I’ve combined Compliance Tools with posts on other business and trade issues—you’ll also find info on Customs rulings or tax issues here:

Compliance Tools, plus other Business and Trade Issues

And we’ll wrap it up with “everything else,” those posts that don’t fit anywhere else.  These include my usual philosophical ramblings and political commentary, plus those fun trade show posts!

Miscellaneous Topics and Philosophical Rants

As always, thanks for reading!  This is going to be an interesting year for sure… (Michael’s wish/curse for me, yes?)
