I had a steamship chugging along at the end of 2008, ready to carry this blog across the Atlantic in its capacious hold.
Somewhere near Greenland, the ship struck an iceberg and has steadily been sinking. The rats abandoned ship but the blog went down with it. For this, I apologize.
Because this isn't a personal blog, I will not go into the details of the iceberg. Needless to say, it was stealthy and huge, and came under cover of night to tear a gaping hole in the ship's hull. Shortly thereafter, the engine ran out of steam.
They've been dredging for the blog, and I think they've sent divers after it. Until it can be fully recovered, updates will be sporadic at best. Thank you for your understanding.
