THANK YOU

Thank you, judi and crazy blog folks, for the nice birthday wishes. As many of you have noted, I am getting old. But on the other hand, I can't remember what is on the other hand.

IT'S YOUR SPECIAL DAY

Happy birthday to The Blog from the world's best copyeditor, and everybody else.

UPDATE FROM ZITALY

They definitely have food over here.

ADVISORY

For the next couple of weeks this blog will be traveling in a Secret Undisclosed Location that, for security reasons, we cannot identify, except to say that it rhymes with "Zitaly." We will be investigating rumors that they have food over there. We will also be exploring the beverage situation. And of course we will look at Important Historical Things, provided that they are located near the food and beverages.

So blogging from us will be sporadic for a while. It is possible that judi will post some items in our absence. It also also possible that she will not. judi is pretty busy.
