Recently more eyes came to this blog, my twitter account (@kesseljunkie) and the bad–ass podcast known as Words With Nerds. Then I realized I’ve been so busy I’ve once more let my blog lapse. It happens. As usual, mea culpa in extremis. But since my last post, I’ve moved, traveled to Colorado to participate in […]Read more "A kessel korner Imprimatur"
