Update: What Does the Future Hold for the PGR.....
Due to a lack of time on my part, and a lack of much interest in the PGR after well over a year of existence, I am withdrawing it from the blogosphere unless another brave soul is willing to take over. Please email me at clarkbar2019 AT yahoo DOT com if you are interested in the task. It's been fun at times, but it mostly felt like work. And I have moved on to another very time consuming project that just doesn't fit very well with the PGR.
"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life. But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney and basking in the of warmth of their hearths and hearts, I couldn't imagine a better fate than a long and lustrous winter."
