What can I say that would excuse a 9 month (give or take) absence from filling this wonderful space with my rants, complaints, irkings, and on occasion a nice word or two? How can I defend not supplying you with your daily dose of me thereby leaving a huge void in your otherwise empty existence? I guess we’ll go with the words of Deniece Williams and “Lets Hear it for the Boy”. For the few months proceeding and the half a year (yikes) after the birth of my son I have left these pages devoid of my usual witty banter and terribly insightful rhetoric. But no more my friends. I’m back!!!
