Sorry, folks -- I'm fighting a heavy wave of blogspam this last week or so. I'm having trouble keeping up with deleting it and it's getting past my antiquated blog software. So if you see some rude comments, I'm sorry and know that I'm doing what I can to remove them as soon as I find them. Unfortunately, this is a real pain in the neck and a drain on other, more productive activities.
If it gets bad enough, I may have to take the blog down temporarily and move to a new blog platform. But we'll see. It's not as though I have a lot of time for that, either. But I may have some forced vacation coming, so you never know.
Again, I apologize for any rude spam you see here.
