Blogmaster General is a mixed bag. The gig is not without its headaches; be they figurative (e.g. the tedium of transcription) or literal (usu. induced by computer screen staring).

Just because most of us are bound to abandon our New Years resolutions round about Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean they are not worth making. The proverbial ‘they’ says that it takes about three weeks to form a habit. Supposing that is true, one doesn’t need to be resolved to her resolutions for long before they become second nature.
