For those who may have noticed I’ve been remiss about writing a blog for the past month or two, well ... I’ve been distracted. I’m retiring.

I wrote" target="_blank">a column  recently explaining why. I'll still be around the area - volunteering, gardening trying to hit golf balls and generally doing all the things I've wished I had the time to do - at least for a few months. Then, I'll decide what else I might want to do.

For those of you who have visited this blog occasionally, thanks for reading!
