Didn't mean to take so long, became caught up in the holidays and work and everything else in life and neglected this blog. Writing is a discipline and it's hard to be disciplined about something that doesn't pay the bills and you have to be disciplined about that!
I'm recovering now after two back-to-back blizzards.
Become a "follower" of the blog - even though I am not the biggest fan of the term "follower." E-mail, leave comments, this will inevitably motivate me to write more. The best motivator is exchanges and input, at times.
