The last blog by this blogger was in November 2012 - and even that blog followed an interval of no blogging of six months.
I apologize to those who were kind enough to show interest in the preceding fifty or so blogs and possibly expected more.
The excuse, adequate or not, is that this blogger suffered a heart attack in June 2012. One triple-bypass later this blogger was blessed with a recovery that restored activity relatively ‘normal’ for a 72-year-old. This activity necessarily has been selective, and unfortunately the blogging was a casualty (as well as a cessation in tweeting).
My activity is essentially writing new biography or revising my older books. Hopefully there will be a new development in my biography of Frederick the Wise. At this point no more can be said about it.
