I've been away from the blog for a fortnight now -- I was in the US, traveling around the tri-state area without a computer for a week (mazal tov ABN and LW!), and then back in Israel, where it was erev chag, chag, erev Shabbat, and Shabbat, so there hasn't been time to blog. Now that I'm back, there are lots of things to post, and I'll get to them in due time.
