We've been having work done in my study (and it is now painted a lovely shade somewhere between salmon and melon) which has meant my computer has been under a plastic drop cloth the last few days. Also, one of the connecters on the coaxial cable was broken, so there was no InterTubz in Casa de Anglachel yesterday evening.
While I'm catching up on my politics, please take time to visit some of the fine blogs listed to the right. I've added a few new ones that have caught my fancy lately. Give your traffic to people who are fighting back against the homogenization of Left Blogistan by offering insightful, cogent, cranky and challenging views. The Blogger Boyz have abandoned any pretense of being part of independent political thinking, so here's where it's at. I have a short blogroll, so be sure to check out the sites these other bloggers link to. There are amazing treasures out there, waiting for you.
