    Yes, I enjoy the blog; gives me to think more deeply, instead of skimming over the words to get the gist

    The “Blog Health-o-meter”? Exactly what are the gradients on a thing like that? (I guess “Wow” should give me a bit of an idea.) 😉
    Seriously, congratulations! You’ve done some truly outstanding work here, and you should be rightfully proud. I look forward to more of “the good stuff” in your upcoming posts. And that includes more inspired lunacy on all our behalves, especially my other two stooges, X and WEBF (I reserve the right to be Curly – the other two can figure out who’s Moe and Larry!).
