I have to say I'm embarrassed to realize it has been over a year and a half since I've posted here (and slim pickins for awhile before that), Let me explain...
Actually, never mind. As my old boss used to say, if you're explaining, you're losing.
Instead, just want to take a minute to say that my lack of activity here represents a lack of active astronomy but not a lack of interest (just lack of time). However, I have lots of plans for the coming year and look forward to sharing information on what are hopefully some unique experiences.
Links on this blog have been configured to open in a new window. I know some people consider that a bad practice, that it should be left to the visitor. Personally, I prefer not "loosing my place" in a blog just because I clicked on a link without explicitly indicating it should open in a new window. I hope you agree.
