PLEASE NOTE ...
For the foreseeable future I will not be making new posts here. This is due to a combination of many different factors. One of which is the difficulty I've been having with the blogger system. (I hasten to add I am aware the the problem may be, at least in part, due to my having an old O.S.) But mostly, I just really need to focus my energies much more fully elsewhere for the time being.
Maybe for now you would enjoy wandering through recent posts or the archives. I will check in occasionally so that I can respond to any of your comments. I will also answer emails during this hiatus.
If I've not returned to posting by then, I hope you have a Happy Fourth of July!
