Yes, I've been terribly neglectful of this site in the past few months. My town job has been beating the tar out of me on a daily basis, and the farm work used up most of the rest of the spare time. Plus, the news and politics have been bleak enough that I haven't really been up for commenting on it.
Now, though, with nothing to do but watch the rain dry up before it gets to us, and watch our corn crop burn up, I'll try to get back in the swing of things here. Misery loves company.
