We’ll Be Back To Normal Soon



Hi everyone.  Apologies for taking a few days off here.  As you know, I have just started a business.  My life has been a bit out of balance as a result.  I’m working on getting back into a healthy balance, which includes writing here every day.  (This is one of the highlights of my day!)  

However, for the next week or so you may find some sporadic posting here.  If you would rather not come here every day to see if I’ve posted, I encourage you to subscribe to new posts via email or a feed reader (including a Google or Yahoo homepage).  That way you’ll know when a new article is up!

Welcome all you new visitors here – I’m pleased you’re joining us.  Please peruse the hundreds of past articles and popular posts here until I return to daily postings.  And for those tenured readers who I’ve come to know and enjoy your company very much, please bear with me during this personal transition time.  We’ll be back to normal soon!

I hope you have a lovely day.

With all my best,
