I'm just now getting round to writing this, so if anyone has already been here and gone I hope you'll be back again, but thanks to Lance Mannion for selecting Byzantium's Shores as his favorite blog of the day. It's always gratifying to get a link from someplace else, and I've been reading (and linking) Lance for years now. So, Mannion-readers, welcome to my little corner of Teh Interweb. Feel free to stay a while. Up above, just below the masthead, you'll find links to lots of stuff I've written in the past, such as my favorite posts for each year I've been doing this (back to 2004, anyway); that's as good a place to start as any.
