Just a note that I’m between homes at the moment – my stuff is mostly in storage while I wait for my new place to become available. As a result, I mainly have Internet access only during normal working hours. I’ll be posting at Pure Poison when I can and may manage to post here occasionally, but rest assured I’ll be back to regular blogging as soon as I have a roof over my head.
