Had a rough last couple of weeks, so I will spend the rest of the Saturday afternoon with family and then friends in order to put the icky stuff behind me. Refresh, renew, etc. Reminder from last weekend’s open thread: In the coming weeks and months I am going to make a concerted effort to […]

I haven’t started one of these in a while, and now would be a good time to do it for me, seeing as I don’t have Internet access thanks to the big snowstorm that blew through here this week.  Hoping to get it back by Tuesday.  I’m borrowing a few minutes of access via my […]
