About a half hour ago the power went out. We're having a bit of windstorm today in eastern Massachusetts, and once again the whole neighborhood went dark. I sent a quick IM to my wife (Unrepentant Golfer), and left the Oasis to light up the living room with candles. Given that we have more candles than The Phantom's Opera House, I had the room in a warm glow without much difficulty. Then the freaking power came back on. Since Unrepentant Golfer isn't yet home from work and the iMac was once again humming, I snuffed out the lights and retreated to the Oasis, thinking, "This would be a good mini-post." But I just didn't feel the kinship with my latest, much-neglected blog.
So here we are. In the process of starting this one, Blogger also prompted me to connect my blogger account with my Google+ account, so of course I did. Who could resist such a siren call of social media connectivity?
