Hello Strangers. That little hiatus was forced by circumstances. But a little help from relatives and friends saved the day.
When one is used to tracking and commenting on the events of the day, then takes a mere seven days off, it's like jumping out of a 150 mph car at a racetrack and depositing yourself in the stands. After a while, everyone is way ahead of you.
No matter. I'll just deposit myself back in and pretend that I never fell out of line.
UPDATE: BTW, I'll be doing double duty; posting here.
