I am ending my blogging sabbatical.  Ok, I didn't really intend to have a sabbatical.  It is amazing how easy it is to let a blog slide. My family is on vacation in North Dakota.  Last night we watched fireworks on the capitol mall in Bismarck.  It is always great to spend time with family.

So much has happened over the past few months.  I have plenty to blog about. You'll see more in the upcoming days.
