Just a quick note to let you all know I’m still around. My PC problems were mostly solved, save for re-establishing contact with my Email (so I could respond to comments, mainly), when my on-again-off-again pancreatitis returned with a vengeance. I thought I had it whipped a few weeks ago, but after a miserable 8-day head-cracking migraine, the guts went nuts – again. Believe me, a diet of toast, cheese and crackers, and PBJ sandwiches gets REAL boring after several weeks.
One sad note before I sign off for 2014. Edward Hermann has passed. While he has a fairly extensive filmography, I will always remember his mellifluous baritone narration on so many History Channel shows of the 90s and 2000s. A very talented and highly intelligent man, he didn’t just narrate, he narrated with emotion and caring in his voice. A sad loss indeed.
Well, to those of you east of me, hope you had a Happy New Year. To those south and west, may you have a Happy New Year. And while it might take a bit, I do have plans to be back – soon, I hope!
