Your dedicated blogger is about to vanish in the holiday haze, presumably stumbling back sometime early in the new year.
Random thought: Obviously I guessed that I'd enjoy writing this blog, or I wouldn't have started, but I had no idea how truly satisfying it would be, or, for that matter, that anyone would actually read it! Many thanks my friends. I look forward to returning soon. Meanwhile, all best wishes for the holidays.
