It has been a little slow around here on this blog lately. Many of you know that I moved to South Carolina from New York earlier this year. South Carolina was spared, completely. But New York and nearby New Jersey and Connecticut were devastated. We have a grown daughter who was evacuated from her home in Brooklyn. We have another grown daughter in Washington D. C., which also faced much of the storm’s furry. We have many friends in New York and because even cell phone towers are without power, we have not been able to reach many of them. My wife and I sit glued to the TV seeing pictures of the devastation and destruction of places we knew and loved. I’ve been a bit pre-occupied. Please be patient.
