Not that it is much fun to follow a blog as silent as this one has been lately, but this is the “on-deck” stack and, believe me, I think it will be a long cold winter here with lots of time to kill and post, so try not to let me slip form your sight. If you are FACEBOOK user, (and my wife thinks I am the only person who isn’t), you can now follow the BUFFET by befriending me as @andrew_phelps_buffet.
