Billmon is back and has been voraciously posting. Here's an excellent Memorial post.
I am back as well but have a couple of 'real world' deadlines. First, I have to finish designing an ad so I can make some money, pay the mortgage, buy groceries and other exciting things. The reservation deadline is the 3rd but I really have to have my entire ad completed so I know what 'size' to reserve. So posting may still be light tomorrow.
PEN PALS UPDATE: Terry sends his heartfelt thanks. The packages starting arriving last week and pens are now arriving by the "thousands"!
tommorrow, and tomorrow and ... later.
