I'm signing off the blog for a week or so. Not that this spotty posting of mine hasn't already experienced such gaps, but I've got lots of pots on the stove these days. So, yes, I am making it official. Folks, you've all been patient and loyal. For those of you who visit daily (I do know who you are, incidently, as I have statcounter) thank you for taking time out of your day to read my humble little blog! Here is my promise to you: When I return, I will also bring new window dressing. Maybe some new colors, new graphics, stuff like that. Additionally, I am going to add a bit to the embarrassingly hollow "Reading" section. And by mid August, I hope to have enough cleared off my plate to write daily.
