I just added an automatic response to my inbox to alert folks that I'd be out of the studio through Christmas and it appears to have gone berserk! From what I can tell, it sent an "I'll be out of the studio..." message in response to every email I've received since somewhere around Oct 17th. Sheesh! So, I apologize if any of you are greeted with a dozen auto responses from my inbox today. I told it to only reply to emails that were less than one day old. I don't know what went wrong. So sorry.
I do expect to pop back in here before Christmas is through though. Happy Christmas Eve Eve -- Sing lots of holiday songs today and make a big, floury mess or two in the kitchen with your loved ones. I plan to.
