Some entirely unrelated items:
1.) I put up a “Donate” button again, due to popular request. (As many as three people have inquired.)
2.) My birthday is coming up in less than two weeks.
3.) I like booze and shiny things.
4.) Booze and shiny things have a way of dulling the pain that comes with getting ever so much closer to the big four-oh. (I’ll be 38 this year.)
5.) My “Booze and Shiny Things” piggy bank currently contains thirty-five cents in sticky change, an automotive 5A fuse, three paperclips, and a partially eaten Snickers Almond candy bar.
Make of these entirely unrelated facts what you will.
