I don’t know if I have any regular readers  (if I do: Hi, Mom!) but if anyone is wondering, I will be back to a more regular series of posts soon.  My grant application went off yesterday, the visiting speaker I’m hosting is here today, and the last class I have to teach for a while is tomorrow; so I’m gradually returning to reality, like a groundhog sticking its head up out of the ground.  In the flurry of activity I cut back blog posts to one a week, but I should be back to the more usual two or three by next week.
