I Think it is Time for a Break

I am going to be taking a bit of a break of my blogging activities over the holiday break.  I expect to return to full blogging on January 3rd.  I am also, temporarily, disabiling comments and trackbacks.  Being near Christmas, I have been receiving hundreds of spam comments and trackbacks to my site.  It has become so bad that my email is being delayed by 2 to 3 hours from the volume alone.  My overriding goal of the break, playing Civ IV!
