Dear Journeyer, This morning I come to you from my living room sofa, one of those recliner combinations we recently purchased for Warren, a guy who loves nothing more than propping his feet at the end of a long, labor-filled day, and relaxing in front of a good show.

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Well, what can I say other than this past week has been pretty much dictated by my workplace crap.

Wow…it’s Sunday…already… Wherever did this week go? Oh, yes, I know… It evaporated in a daily series of phone calls and my ongoing research to meet new people and make new connections in this vast cyber sphere… One of the disadvantages of living in a small town is that of limited easy access to global information… In this instance, I …
