Yes, I'm still here.
Spent last week in Michigan with the folks -- my dad, sick with bone cancer, started a new round of chemo. Michigan had blizzard after blizzard last week...and considering the folks had an appointment somewhere every day of the week, it was was interesting, to say the least.
Got home just in time to see the last few minutes of the Superbowl...and brought home a cold as a souvenir. Oh goody.
I'll be in touch in the next day or so.
