This is my second attempt to post from the hot place. The first, a "Merry Christmas" post, failed to go through. I think I have the problem licked, though. Thanks to MLL for the kind prompt. I expect I'll be posting very infrequently until the end of February, unless I get really motivated and this posting method works. In any case, the point of this post is "Happy New Year!" I expect I'll be officially in 2008 before just about anyone who might read this, so I don't feel too bad about jumping the gun by a few hours.
Oh, and the hot place isn't really all that hot right now. 60s-80s in the daytime, 50s at night. Tolerable.
