Well, folks, I'm off for the rest of my vacation, which will end on Jan. 3. I'm not going to do any blogging. I need a complete break. And so do you. Have the merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years. I deeply appreciate the attention you folks pay to Hot Potatoes. It's a humbling experience to be the gatekeeper for this blog. And I've made some good friends in doing so. See ya next year.
