Just a quick programming note. For a while I have been receiving notes from people who want to read all of the blog posts that comprise this journal (this entry is #489, with the first coming in June 2018). You couldn't really read that far back in the past, because the individual entries did not open in separate windows, and the page would reload as you scrolled backwards. So it was kind of a pain. The entries still don't open in new windows (but I think there's a way to click one's mouse so that they do?), but the good news is that there are now twenty individual entries per page, so one can read everything, the whole tamale, quite easily, thanks to webmaster Andrea Murray.
