You may have noticed that my posts have been a bit more irregular recently.
I've been preoccupied with my new pets (see picture).
They hatched last week and have been following me around the house ever since. They are called Seramas -- the world's smallest chicken -- and generally weigh less than 1/2 pound when full grown. Sadly, the one on the left died last night.
I generally reserve my blog for topics of a less personal nature; however, some readers who noted that I generally post daily expressed concern over the tardiness of my posting and I felt a proper explanation was in order.
