You may have noticed the fresh look to our website. We’ve made it easier to read and have also added a new forum where readers can discuss thoughts and ideas sparked by some of the postings here.  Take a look by clicking on Forum tab at the bar at the top of the page.  All registered users here are invited to participate. We hope you’ll join in the conversations.

As part of our website cleanup we purged our data base of registered users that have not been active in recent months.  It’s possible that some who were previously registered may have to do so again.  Our apologies for any inconvenience.

If you wish to comment or participate on our forum and are not registered, it’s easy to do so.  Just click on the word Register in the sidebar to go to a page where you can put in your email and select a user name.  Once you’ve successfully copied the captcha code to prove you’re not a spammer, a password will be mailed to you.  Then you use the password to sign in so that you can add comments and questions to the blog and use the forum.  We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to connect with like-minded people.
