A number of regular readers have e-mailed to ask why the blog is not being updated as frequently as it usually is.
The answer is simple, but sad: my mother is dying.
Updates will continue to be sporadic for a while as I am at the hospice every day to spend time with her as she slowly fades from this life.
Thank you all for your support and understanding during this difficult time for my family.

I’m so sorry for your family crisis, it is a hard time and I know how hard it is to lose someone slowly like that. She’s very fortunate to have someone with her.
