FYI:  I am heading out of town for a few days and will not be able to interact with comments on the blog during that time.  I’m taking my 86-year old mom trout fishing in the Ozarks, and will not have internet access.   I saved up a couple of posts and handed them over to my trusty computer person and internet tech, who keeps this blog running, Steven Ray — so posts should appear a while I’m incommunicado.  But I won’t be able to reply or post any comments that come in during that time.   I should be back on board by Friday.
