I had this blog, once...

Sorry about my abrupt (& lengthy) disappearance... I had some computer issues (& little money to fix 'em), and while I was away from the net I developed other interests & habits that kept me away even longer than I had to be (Yes Virginia, there is life away from the internet.)

I'm going to try to post more often, & still maintain my real world interests as well... We'll see how well I do...

Hope everyone had a great bunch of holidays!!
