    1. Sorry. I haven’t missed it. We live in Spokane WA area and had a huge wind storm last night. I have no power so cannot do updates quite yet. Kids have no school, so I also can’t go to a local coffee shop to use their WiFi. Will hopefully update this afternoon.


  1. For once I managed to get mine in at a reasonable time!!! *does celebratory jig, is penalized for excessive celebration. Goes back to the bench and resumes impression of fairly sane human being* 🙂
