Thanks so much to those of you who have left a comment or just stopped by the last few weeks.
When I promised an update "next week" I didn't say which next week, right? Heh. Anyway, the short version is that in the last four weeks I have gotten a great new job and moved my family back to my former domicile in Alaska. While I certainly could have found 10 minutes somewhere in there to update the blog, well...I didn't.
When I stopped playing OTB tournament chess in the summer I felt a certain lowering of the intensity in my drive to blog and use blogging to try and improve; even though I'm now back ot enjoying some blitz on FICS and may even play in the fabulous Tournament of the LEPers III, I'm not sure where the blog is heading, now.
Hey, I still love chess and I wanted you, Dear Reader, to know that I'm okay, doing great in fact. When I have more to say, I'll be back here to say it.
