Just a word about the decrease in posts. You see, I've been sick. As sick as I've ever been in my life. I'm sure it was a viral illness, but it didn't want to let go for over a week. Flu? Don't know. I was vaccinated. Whatever it was it took away interest in blogging and kept me in bed for several days. I expect blogging to resume apace now that the cytokine storm has nearly passed.
