Site Note

Thanks to all the kind sentiments on the passing of my wife, Kim. The outpouring from all corners has been gratifying. Alas, it has also put a tremendous strain on the server load for the first time since moving to the current configuration. Ed is working on some technical fixes to mitigate the problem.

As one might imagine, my focus on the site is limited at the moment to checking the comments on that post. I expect to return to whatever the new normal in a few days.

    The new normal may well be the end of this blog. As much as I will miss it, I will accept it. I once had to make such a decision myself for the sake of my sons (pre-internet days). It is not easy, but sometimes one has to make a choice and let go of a few things.

    Your daughters are what is really important. I know you know this. I just want you to know that we know this too.


  3. Yes James, how about an address so someone could send a card.
