Notice: A significant number of posts (mid-2011 to early-March of 2015) have notations of "previously posted on such-and-such date", i.e., these were rescued from a now-retired blog of mine. Here is given notice that unless the prior date is needed for pertinence, it will be retired from the titles - gradually. This is being done to simplify the titles, not for any nefarious, fraudulent reasons.
IOW, these were posted over a period of several years (2005 - 2008) on the other blog and I started copying/moving them to this newer blog. I had put time and passion into these posts. If any of them have now-disconnected internal links to the retired-blog, I will be fixing those, too. Gradually.
Thank you for your time, visits, and thoughtful, constructive comments.
