Believe it or not, this is my 1000th post. It's unbelievable that I have written so much since April 1, 2009 when I first started blogging. Just imagine how much blabbing that now is diverted onto the blog I would have dumped on my long-suffering students, friends and family members if I didn't have this outlet. I can't begin to tell you how happy it makes me that so many people come here every day to read my ravings, rantings, ruminations, and reviews. I have learned a lot from my intelligent, well-informed and kind readers. Thank you, everybody, for being here. If there are any specific topics you want me to rant about, just ask.
