Try as I might I cannot cobble together a post that is worthy of your time. I cannot summon whatever it is that I need to summon. There is no news. Nothing worthy of the pixels. At least, I think there is nothing worthy. It’s not for lack of trying. Twice now I’ve started a post about the wallpapering project. Twice I’ve abandoned same. I get part way through trying […]

Good news. I found a family doctor. Back when I had my cold/flu/bronchial thing, I applied to become a patient of Dr. New Doctor. I had heard via Facebook that he was accepting new clients.
