I will be having holidays in and around San Francisco, arriving on Sunday Dec 31 at midday, and leaving on January 8 at night. If you are nearby between these dates, I will be most glad to meet you!
In any case, I hope you are happily celebrating the Winter Solstice, Saturnalia, Gravmas, or whatever you like to call the gift-giving season.
NB: I haven't been posting much these times. One major reason why not is that I am experiencing hands problems: RSI, CTS, Tendinitis, whatever the name. I'm slowly recovering, but typing quickly becomes uncomfortable then painful.
