FOR ANYONE who didn't already know- I was sort of put out of action on Oct. 28, 2011 by having surgery on my left shoulder for a torn rotator cuff and a torn bicep. I'm just now regaining enough use of the arm that I can sit and type for any length of time. I've been using Dragon software for other writing, but, aside from the Holmes interview this site was put on hold for a while. MORE stuff is, however, on the way Gears fans- but for another few weeks, I'm still benched.
