While the cat’s away. . .

Chris is going to be away from internet access for the next few days.  So, instead of putting up a post and not being able to answer your comments, he decided to put up an open thread.  So the floor is yours.  The rest of the MGCers will be around, so have at it.  Ask any questions, make any comments or suggest possible topics.  The blog is yours today.
