...well, not really, but I am catching up from a wonderfully busy weekend. I'm very nearly done with a big raft-o-work, after which things should be more or less back to normal. Full details when regular posting resumes, either later today ot tomorrow at the latest.
I owe Dodd a couple of responses (see comments below--if they're working), and of course I have a ton of other links to follow up on. In retrospect, I wonder if I shouldn't have simply gone on hiatus instead.
I do need to observe that some time over the weekend, the hit counter passed 7,000. A modest achievement, but I do appreciate the people who stop by.
