A little before eight last night, I started feeling really achy all over. I asked my cyberbud, Rick (a/k/a cornbread) if he'd guest blog. Unfortunately he doesn't subscribe online, and my attempt to send him the puzzle failed.
Turned out to be food poisoning, and I spent last night being tended to by paramedics, followed by a nifty ambulance ride. One of the things they gave me (Fenergal, I think) made me very loopy.
No blog today on this very fine puzzle. Feel free to discuss it among yourselves here.
I'm heading to bed...and I hope to be back tonight.
