  1. Glad to see you still in the mix - thought we'd lost you when the link defaulted to's site. I've grown accustomed to using you & April as a 'cross-check on reality' for minor-league news.

  2. Thanks, BinM - We're hoping to have our regular site back in a few days, but we're happy to serve you off the card table in the corner while the grownups argue over who gets the drumstick in the meantime.
