There is nothing wrong with your computer screen. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission...We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical...We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat, there is nothing wrong with your computer screen. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery that is What It's Like on the Inside.
Some of you are no doubt old enough to recognize parts of the opening of "The Outer Limits," which I've plagiarized for this post.
After nearly three years, this blog has some new togs. The ladybug may make a reappearance at some point in the future; but for now, I am very excited to have a new layout to use. Although events of fall and winter did their level best to prune me back, they have only succeeded in ensuring I will grow back better than ever. Much like the tendrils which now surround this blog, it's time to bloom where I'm planted.
