I think I owe my surviving LJ friends some apologies
I had been meaning to make some sort of return to LJ, at least every now and then. However, as part of that, I unwisely decided to have LJ upload my Facebook entries. From what I can see, the result must have been to crowd some people's friends pages with space-devouring links they may not be interested in or may already have seen. This setting has now been altered, and my apologies.
