Lately, the quality (or at least quantity) of this blog has been suffering because I have been, as we say in the South, as busy as a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest. My new almost-full-time teaching job, in addition to my houseful of kids and gigs, etc., has made it difficult to find the time it takes me to write anything decent or Photoshop. I'm not giving up the ship, but I hope you all will be patient while I try to get used to my busier schedule. I hate having a half-assed blog. Apologies all round.
