My apologies to all....
I hope to return soon. I have some stuff just sitting there that I haven't re-read in order to publish. This Summer has been an adventure.
I've worked more hours and made more money than ever before....but we feel like we're broke...struggling to pay the bills.
It's largely inflation...it's crushing us. Thankfully I can raise my rates, something others do not have the power to do.
Sadly, it has meant some LONG hours. I get home later and then spend time on the phone and in my office working on plans and bids. I've got notes for many articles, some which probably won't get written.
Also, Summer is a time to try and get outside. It's a time of lawn mowing, garden tending, bicycle rides, hiking, and sadly this year only one backpacking trip....an excellent inexpensive hobby.
But today Autumn is here in full force. It's about 4C/40F here and pouring rain. The time for longer hours inside is returning and DV (Deo Volente) more time for writing.
