Welcome to my do-over. You may or may not know that I used to keep a blog called "Bottoms Up and Tops Down." This was an anonymous solicitation at a party in 2003; I did not oblige but I thought it was a funny thing to say. It was a good six years. Then I posted at this very address for about a year, and one day I deleted it all and quit. But oh how I've missed you! Here I come crawling back, dear blogosphere.
