Clearly, the new gig has brought blogging to a near standstill. Apologies for that; I will keep up with this as much as possible. One upside: beginning next week I’ll be getting around the state quite a bit. First week it’s St. Louis and Kansas City. Next, Columbia. Then Springfield. I’ll probably sprinkle in a few other more rural visits as well, so throw ideas my way. Thinking destinations within an hour of Jefferson City.
