Followers, a New Gadget

I have added a new thingy to my blog, a tool called "Followers". Congratulations to Mighty Bob (not her real name!) for being the first to sign up. When you sign up, you will receive a steak dinner, a copy of my new book, and a barrage of unsolicited emails for life. What a deal.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for my infrequent blogging as of late. While we were in Honduras I was posting several times per week with stories that were meant to inform and entertain, and with photos that were meant to express the world as I was seeing it. Since I have been back, the boys and I are reinvolved in Boy Scouts, The M and I are reinvolved in leading a small group associated with our church, the students and I are reinvolved in learning engineering, and some of us are trying hard to launch a company to franchise village-level energy micro-businesses. And frankly, I have been fighting a little depression.

I know that exercise helps with my depression. When I lift weights or ride my bike or even walk, I tend to feel better. But apparently, once a month is not frequent enough. I seem to let all those other things take priority, because frankly, they are more fun and/or interesting. If only I had access to a nice gym to work out in - oh wait, I do, and it's free. If only it were located at the university so I didn't have to go far out of my way to exercise - oh wait, it is. Maybe I can get a graduate student to do it for me...
