Not a lot to report, more just an acknowledgement this blog is still here and in the back of my mind.  I renewed this domain for another year, reminding me of the intention to write here with more frequency.  New board games have been played and Asimov's SF&F's read; I am definitely not lacking for content.

More than anything else, I wanted to wish you and yours a happy 2017.   Personally, I have a metric shit-ton to be grateful for - in stark contrast to the darker news of 2016 - and I can only hope for even better in the year to come.  

In the meantime, enjoy this picture of Lillian unenthusiastically dressed as a peacock.
