My customary Wednesday-morning posting may be delayed. For some unknown reason I’ve developed a mighty pain in the neck (Pam remarked sympathetically that it made a change for me to have one rather than be one), and it’s making typing quite a chore. With luck I’ll sleep it off by the morning.

  1. Thanks! As always, for your kind citations here. I hope the neck is vastly improved this morning, by evidence of the posting….and I really have to watch how YahooMail scrambles the transcripts of the links-lists…cutting off Yvette Banek, killing what it sees as soft returns…
