Hello Estonia!  I guess now is the right time to mention my one-day trip to your lovely city of Tallinn.  It was the summer of 1972; I was ten years old, in hockey camp, and it was part of my one and only trip to Europe between my birth and my thirty-ninth year.  And I almost got left behind, as the camp bus took off to take us to the boat back to Helsinki.  Fortunately, someone on the bus noticed I was missing, otherwise I would have wandered around Tallinn for hours until I became the center of a diplomatic wrangle among Finland, KOHO corporate officials, and the Soviet authorities who’d reluctantly granted us the one-day visit.  Ah, those were the days.

Ulp!  Uh, hmmm.  Hey, did I mention that I’ve joined the Liberal Prose Network and will be running blogads?  Well, tell you what.  I’m going to suggest that everyone from the .mil domain who buys products advertised on this site should get a twenty percent discount. . . .

20. cn (China) 78 (0.20%)

. . . whereas people from the .cn domain will be subject to a twenty percent surcharge.  Trying to do my part to combat the trade deficit, you know.

Morocco!  Now that’s a surprise.  Not that I don’t love all of you equally, except maybe one or two of you countries that are just way too clean.

And stay tuned!  This blog might just be in for even bigger surprises.  You never know.
