One foot in front of the other…


A two month recap

It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything new up here on the blog, since Canadian Thanksgiving in fact – and now American Thanksgiving is there in the rear-view mirror.  Going from a daily occurrence to absolutely nothing should never be allowed, but of course that’s the way of it for most of the pages in the blogosphere.  I didn’t really mean for it to happen, it just did, and it’s mostly because I was a bit busy, and needed a bit of a break.  However, I want to get right back to it, so here is a bit of an update, shamelessly about me.
