I'm getting major delays via the posting mechanism I send to this blog (I much prefer sending posts via email vs. web interfaces). Given that the Blogger Mail2Blogger gateway is pretty much a bit-bucket right now, things have been slow to show up here. So I'm going to post the two in the queue now, hoping that after a week's worth of guru meditation they don't magically appear through the gateway, too. If they do: oops, my apologies. We all seem to get what we pay for. Until the Mail2Blogger gateway starts behaiving, things will be quiet here.
