That’s what I kept saying, throughout all those months without this blog. “Oh, it’ll be so great when I can start blogging again.” So…great! Now I can blog again, so…blog! About what! I don’t know!

Where to begin?

I haven’t posted in a blog’s age. A few months ago, this website was hacked and pirated by spammers. They did such a thorough job of the hacking and pirating that eleven years of archives were corrupted and could not be retrieved. I didn’t lose everything – I made a backup copy of the blog […]
