Greetings, manic fans. Â Les here to say hello. Â It’s been several weeks since I’ve posted blogs and my comments have been very sparse, as well. Â I just wanted to reassure you, I haven’t died or anything tragic like that. Â I’m on the final stretch of my ship contract playing piano bar on the MS Nieuw Amsterdam and finally can see a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak. On November 9th, I come home where the internet is cheap and reliable, unlike here on the ship. Â After that, I should resume my usual frequency of participation on the site. Â In the mean time, I’m going to begin posting my old blogs from the former site of Manic Expression. Â I figure there are many of you who never saw the first blogs I posted, so they’ll be new to you. Â I intend to start posting them tomorrow and then every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Â Mondays will be for any new blogs I come up with. Â I figure I’ll be nearly caught up by the time I come home. Â I’ve also finished my contribution to the 31 days of Halloween for Manic Expression, so expect that October 12th as scheduled. Â With luck, I’ll also be successful meeting Madhog thy Master in the 3 days that the ship will put me in the range of Rome these next 2 months. Â Hopefully that will happen and more video magic will ensue. Â In the meantime, I hope you’ve all been acclimating to the new site features and are having a good time rebuilding our site past its former glory to be the beacon of the internet is has the potential to be. Â Thanks for giving me some of your time, my friends. Â Peace.
