Hurray! Hurray! Rivertyde is back!
(doing happy little dance of glee in cubicle)
(well, not really, but thank you Michlt for the comment - I hadn't given up on you yet!)
Michlt, for those who haven't gone through my blogrolls (which I finally updated last week, and about time, too!), is a Philadelphia-based bookseller with an interest in natural history. His own writing is always a pleasure to read, he gives some very useful book recommendations (and when I say "useful" I really mean "pointing me to books I would never have been clever enough to buy on my own"), and he finds some very cool blogs.
You can take "cool" either figuratively or literally.
Welcome back, Michlt!
