We're back and I'll just apologize for the lack of posts ... I was in a dial-up situation and simply downloading email was a major problem (for three days I couldn't even do that until I figured out that someone had sent me a pile of photos which were preventing downloading the hundreds of other things). That said, I'm pretty zonked and won't be posting any 'real' posts until the a.m. ... I've got a pile of catching up to do, so I'll probably do 20 or so posts at a time until I'm caught up (or I might group a bunch of related posts together ... whatever the case, it'll require far more Starbucks than I have at hand ...).
