HOLIDAY WRAPUP….Houseguests are gone, the holidays are over, and good health has been pretty much restored to all. Today I’m going to go see Return of the King ? having spent the previous week watching the director’s cuts of the first two movies ? and tonight I understand there’s some kind of consolation bowl game to determine the college football runnerup. I guess I ought to watch that.

Normal frenetic blogging should return on Monday.
