Not a lot of chatter in the comments here these days.  I wonder why that is.  Am I talking about things that you find completely uninspiring? Am I not posting enough? Am I posting too much?  Does it have nothing to do with me at all, and everything to do with October?  That’s it, isn’t […]

Various factors had been keeping us from going for the last few weeks, but Wednesday we managed to do it. And Neil was able […]
