I will allow comments through by default for repeat commenters again, first time commenters will still need an initial approval. I will however now be a more active moderator and delete things that are useless or unnecessarily personal from now on, except on this thread.

Things have been quiet here, even more than the usual slow pace... I am back now from a trip to Europe where I left the family with the kids maternal grandparents and I won't see them for nine weeks in all.Â This was a bad plan, but it was the plan.Â I have been home … Continue reading Catching up…
