So this installment doesn't have quite the razzle-dazzle, or hype, or whatever of the last, but I hope the point comes across. I've learned a little bit about putting these things together, including something that I need to work on more for the next time: REHEARSE; and a little bit about myself: like, man, it's so hard to hold onto a train of thought or keep things interesting (doubtful I managed) or even organized when there's no class of noisy kids sitting in front of me. I need you guys there raising your hands or shouting out questions and comments!
