Hello, friends and passers-by: I am taking a break from the blog and Facebook in order to deal with visits and deadlines. And I also have need for some time to reflect on work accomplished, and whether I will continue in the same modes as in the past. (I will, however, answer notes left anywhere on the blog.) Keep warm.


  1. As was said when I was in the Navy, may you have fair winds and following seas as you continue onward.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
