Apologies for slow replies

I’ve been ignoring this blog lately while I attend to other commitments (teaching a couple of history classes; helping to run a local history museum; doing that “parental involvement” thing…).

If you’ve emailed me in the past month or so and I haven’t yet replied: I apologize. I haven’t forgotten you! I’m just a little bit overwhelmed by end-of-semester grading, and by the need to, for example, bake pumpkin bread for “Colonial Days” at my son’s school.

I hope to return to the blog (and to the emails sent by blog readers) within the next couple of weeks.
