Rumor has it that school has started up again; how did I miss that? Regular school I mean, not my school although I’ve been doing quite a bit of that lately. Anyway, I’m looking forward to a productive week and hope yours will be too. Until then and to tide you over, here are the entries published on this site for this period over the last seven years with still more listed on the archives page. Have a great weekend!
