Thanks for all of you who expressed concern that there was something wrong and that I had disappeared or fallen off the face of the Earth. Nothing is wrong, I've just been a slacker when it comes to the blog. I'm trying to be better as we enter the New Year. I'll still never understand how it is that so many people are interested in my babbling, but it's definitely good for the ego!
On a similar note, my computer's security settings don't seem to be playing nicely with those at Google, so I'm often not able to post on the blogs of others. Please know that I love reading them, and would love to let you know that, but the great Google in the sky seems to prefer otherwise!
