  1. Would you add an rss feed for memory-deprived readers?

  2. I’ll give it a shot. I’m very new to blogging and with this weekend’s workshop behind the 8 ball on my regular job. So, I’ll get to setting up an RSS feed later this week.

  3. Hi Bob:

    I’ve fiddled with my site. Please let me know if the RSS feed works.

  4. Super! Thank you!

    I will inform Sherman. 😉

  6. You say Carmina, I say Carmana, You say Burina, I say Burana… 🙂 You gave me my favorite musical joke ever… I’m really glad to see that you are doing well! – Jim Van Dorn 🙂

  7. Hi Dr. Lugg, I’m reaching out to see if there is a better email address to reach you at than your Rutgers one? Gary and I have just sent you an email there. Thanks!
