I just wanted to pop in and say hi! We haven't fallen off the face of the earth or been struck by the latest plague (knock on wood). However, we have gone into total system failure with our internet provider. They claim different scenarios each day, with no indication of when things will be fixed. For now, I'll have to take my computer (and knitting... and friends...) to the coffee shop for my service. It's not a bad gig, really.
