Well, its been gratifying (and a bit of a surprise) to hear from those of you who actually drop round here and have wondered where I've been.
An old friend asked me to come out of semi-retirement for a project and so I have been incredibly busy and neglecting my blog.
That's all done now and so I'm back to blogging. Oh and enjoying my new acquisition (pictured above) from some of the proceeds. My neighbors are happy too, as, unlike my old "Ringo" kit, I can play these ones at night with headphones.
