Ten and a half years.  

Although I probably jumped the shark a long damned time ago, it's been a good run.

The J-Man has been reading the blog, much to my distress.  That can't go on.  Therefore it's time for me to move on.

I will miss you all, even you lurkers.  You've been my dysfunctional little internet family, and we've had some good times.  You've listened when no one else would, and you've always been there with advice, a shoulder to cry on, or hands clapping to cheer me on.

I appreciate it more than I can say.

I may start up somewhere else.  I'm not sure yet.  I may just start to pursue a serious avenue of writing.  

If you like, shoot me an e-mail at, and I will let you know if or when I start another blog.

Thank you for ten and a half years of something that was truly rewarding to me.  Thank you so very much.
