Still here, not yet extinct
I know it looks as if we declared a hiatus and ran away, but we're all still here. 2011 has not been treating anyone kindly, and the list of illnesses, injuries, losses and disasters shows no signs of stopping. It occurs to me that I need to repost the guidelines for family and friends to follow as part of their lifetime appointment as loved ones, including: Don't get sick. Don't get injured. Don't let any natural disasters happen anywhere near you. Don't let any personal disasters happen anywhere near you. And please get to work on that immortality thing--there is no one I can spare. Got it?
