I'll be out of town for most of November for medical care in New England and then to see Steely Dan in Montreal. Because I expect to be showing some of my friends around New England in late December there is the possibility that I would stay up north for the duration and return home in January 2010. Of course, it's more likely that I'll simply come back and make a second trip but I thought I'd share that possibility with you. In any case, I can't guarantee much in the way of updates while I'm gone. I'm optimistic that I will be able to.
