This may look like trash on the blog, but thot I’d from time to time bring sidebar tweets onto the main page directly from Twitter since most “normal” readers (you know who you are) don’t bother to look there. If this is garbage visually, I won’t leave it up. If not, don’t know yet. We’ll see. There might be something here for somebody some time.

And on New Year’s Day, who’s up before noon and reading blogs anyway. (You know who you are.) Happy New Year, and a better one ahead, maybe? Make it so!
