So here I am, rationalizing that I will spend most of the time reading (as soon as I figure out this "firends list" business) but recognizing I will do some writing because (a) I cannot keep my yapper shut, and (b) it is essential in community to contriubute.
But I resolve to be thoroughly grumpy. In the same way that I utterly refuse to customize my ring tones or otherwise personalize my cell phone, I plan to make this page as vanilla as possible. It's only attraction will be my crumdgeonly postings. Happily, I am not advertiser supported.
Back to work.
