Coming Back

Ok, I'm finally ready to get back to the Blogosphere, and just wanted to give everyone an update on my absence.  The beginning of the year, with some personal issues got a little worse before getting better.  Recently my mother was in 4-car pile up on the freeway - thank goodness she wasn't seriously hurt.  Physically that is.  Psychologically she was very shaken up and needed a support system.  And then I was in no shape to do serious thinking in the past week as I had been struggling with a strep throat, which is only today a little bit better.

So those are the primary reasons for my absence.  I want to thank the contributors here for keeping this place going in my absence, and I want to thank you all for sticking around.

Here's to being back. :-)
