Slowly but surely we're climbing out of the hole last year's hard times put us in, very much due to the generosity of readers like you. But it's often been a case of two steps forward, one step back. Today is another step back. An unxpected bill's come due on top of a bunch of other things, and we're coming up short. So we could use some more help. If you like what goes on around here and you can swing it, please consider making a donation. It'd be much appreciated. Thank you. And thanks to all of you for reading the blog.
