Sorry things have been quieter than usual around here--thankfully, there's always the Great and Powerful Jeffy to supply the occasional item or two to contemplate.
My mother had a massive stroke a couple weeks ago, and that rather takes up all our spare time. I won't dwell on these personal matters except to say that she got hit pretty hard and recovery is still up in the air.
What will probably happen, though, is that these big, life-changing occurrences inevitably set my mind off on a series of tangents, and this will no doubt make its way into blog content. So at least you'll have some idea where a certain tone or thrust of a series of posts comes from.
