My employer recently added some more responsibilities to my job including a business unit that tends to travel quite a bit, and so I've been spending more time in airplanes recently. Last month I was in St. Louis, two weeks ago in Germany, next week in South Carolina, and someplace else the week after that. Although I am enjoying the new challenges of my job, it leaves very little free time for other things like this blog.
I'll do what I can to keep this blog current since it's a convenient way for us to stay in touch with each other. I always look forward to hearing from you, and I appreciate your patience while I adapt to these changes in my professional life.
