As readers have noticed, I’ve been tuned out for a few weeks. No single reason.
I did a considerable amount of fresh work on issues related to Hurricane Sandy, but found them hard to reduce to a few posts. So I’ve got topics in inventory.
I also had a bout of periodic weariness. I just turned 65 and continue to tire more quickly than I used to. Various leg injuries have contributed to a decline in fitness as well. Nor is it easy to continue to muster enthusiasm for analysis of dreck from people like Mann, Lewandowsky, Gleick, Gergis, Briffa, Jones etc. Wading into WG2 is even worse.
I’ve also been busy on some business issues. Trelawney Mining got taken over last June (it was a considerable success; our first property visit was mentioned in a CA post a few years ago) and we’re working on a new venture. One of my sons is involved in small-cap mining as well and I’ve been helping him as well. I find it very hard to focus on more than one thing at once.
Also, my wife and I are going to visit our daughter in New Zealand and our son in Thailand over Christmas. I’m going to be away for about 4 weeks. The flight to New Zealand goes from San Francisco so I’m going to go to AGU this year, starting tomorrow. And will try to blog on anything interesting.
