This was the first full week of school, and it was very busy. That explains why there are no other posts for this past week. Once I get used to the different schedule, there will be more posts for your reading pleasure.

The Republicans have had their convention, and the Democrats are getting ready to meet in the town just up the road from us. I'm glad I don't work there, as the traffic is expected to be a mess.
