October had really been a very busy month for me. I was preparing the boys for their end of year examinations and was clearing my backlog of readings to be done. As the school year comes to the close I am reminded that I need to finish all ongoing campaign work on the blog before the kids are out of school for a whole 7 weeks.

Here are some highlights of the month that just went by.
