Sorry for the delay. . .

A funny thing happened three Sundays ago (Feb. 9). . . Okay, not funny ha-ha. My cat’s overexuberant love bite had infected, doubling the size of my left hand. So it was off to an urgent care facility, where the doc took one look at my hand and said, “TO THE ER. NOW!” That if I didn’t go, I would be in a coma by morning and hauled off in an ambulance and sepsis could kill me. Who’s to argue about that? Continue reading

What a way to end an old year and begin a new year

On New Year’s Eve, just as I went to upload Monday’s articles to Intrepid Report, my router/modem died. No Internet! I was promised a new one would arrive Tuesday. So much for promises. It finally arrived today after I had, shall we say, some words for tech support. Continue reading
