Weekend update: Other things found this week:
It's been a slow week. Haven't found much to post, and had less time to browse this week since my main computer had a modem failure. (Still no DSL where I am yet.) After trying to make it work all week, bought a new modem yesterday and now am getting back to normal. Have lots of stuff to read before I get caught up, though. And Blogger slowdowns haven't been helping....
