I'M HERE: Just busy. Deadlines of various kinds — oh, and the move to a new house has managed to slow any apparent forward momentum. Boxes, everywhere. But I'll be back with stuff to say. I keep clipping interesting things and making notes to blog - and then another day is over. I hope this finds all of you well at this amazing time of year. I would actually call this time of year "Christmas" but I'm afraid doing so might open me to legal action from some disgruntled secularist who 1) doesn't believe in God and 2) is mad at God. Nasty combination, that. Now look at me, I've gotten myself worked up ... and what I need to be doing is ... opening up ... boxes.
