Just a quick note to let you know that I didn't really drop off the end of the earth, despite appearances. Late Wednesday night I developed a severe cold or the flu (but since I got a flu shot this year, I'd hope it's not the flu) and have basically been sleeping most of the time since. I finally had my first solid food today, so I hope that I'm finally on the road to recovery. I've got a ton of things to do, mostly shopping and cooking, and only half the amount of time I originally planned to do it in. Still, I should be back on line shortly.
