Thanks for plugging in. There are a lot of disparate topics here, soon to be rearranged onto separate pages with colourful icons that seduce the reader. But for now it's all basically divided into a website and a well-worn blog (as much essays as blogs). By the way, thanks for reading, too. Without more knowledge, how can one sanely navigate on this wondrous planet? Hopefully, some things here are of service for ideas or humour or just getting your reading up to snuff.
