It's time for my long overdue R&R break back to the States. I may post while I'm gone, but it's likely that regular posting won't resume until my return in late March. Thanks for all the visits so far- I'v had 35,000 visitors in the last 2 months. I am reachable by the above email address, and for those of you who have my Chicago cell phone number, it should be operable again Monday night.
