I may be offline for a bit. I'm on my way to snowy Wisconsin (here's hoping I actually get to land there sometime tomorrow ...!), and while I've been able to connect through my sister's wireless network before, what with family obligations this time out, I doubt that I'll actually have much time to get online until the 29th or so. If I'm silent, that's why.
So let me now wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and Good Solstice, in case I miss the opportunity a bit later!
I'll definitely be back in the swing before the new year starts.
Be safe, be happy, and I'll be seeing you.
