Okay, I moved back to my old, tried-and-true blog theme. I'm now going through and cleaning it up, adding in a bunch of stuff and trying to get my blog back to some semblence of usability again. Please pardon the mess....
I also tried to add "casino" in the blacklist area and that seems to have wacked *any* comments for the past few hours, so if you left a comment then, it's not being held for moderation, it's gone.
My wife mentioned that my 5 year old picture with the tilted background and mystery woman (taken in a restaurant in Segovia, Spain in 2000) really needs to be replaced with something that looks like me nowadays. That'll happen too... stay tuned.
