The Dog Days of Summer
We made it through July, spooky interpretations of
Nostradamus aside (though some "true believers" claim
we need to get to October before we're really out of the
woods) But I digress! We've got another month of
new creative work and a PalmPilot related ramble
from yours truly. So get to reading, and enjoy the summer
while it lasts-
(For the record, this issue marks 2 full years of the
new Blender Digest format, with the first version of
the Love Blender itself dating all the way back to late 1993...)
as always: read love & enjoy,
