Once again, I fear breaking the rules of blogging. Either I do not post anything for a long, long time and lose the readership we have (we are hoping to get some clam chowder again soon) or I write something personal. I have decided to write something personal this time though. Many of you have asked to be kept in the loop in regards to the birth of our first child. Well, on April 14th, Abigail Helen was born, 6 1/2 weeks early. I am pleased to annouce that mom and Abigail are doing great. Thank you to all of you who have called and asked and kept us in your thoughts and prayers. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
