Computer Difficulties

I've been hamstrung by computer difficulties lately; regular posting should resume shortly.

It is amazing what you can learn to grow accustomed to over here though. I have no landline phone. I use a cell phone which has no voicemail. My computer is down as often as it is up. My printer goes on the fritz daily. I have limited if any access to copiers and fax machines. Yet still we get substantial work done.
