But then, that's why you visit good old Uncle Bilbo ... to learn interesting and useful things. Or, at least, things that can help take your mind off all the scary stuff out there.
For this reason ... and because I'm suffering from creative constipation this morning ... let's roll out a topic I haven't used for a few years: Ask Bilbo.
Yes, Dear Readers, this is your opportunity to ask Bilbo anything you want. I will answer all questions that don't involve allegations of past intimate relationships with small animals, my shameful past as a Republican, or my true opinion of S&P, Congress, and the financial mismanagement industry (there are, after all, children who read this blog).
Post your question in the comments, or send an e-mail to bilbo_the_blogger(at)yahoo(dot)com. If I get enough questions, I'll answer them tomorrow. If not, I'll do something else. Whatever.
Operators are standing by ...
Have a good day. Answers to your questions tomorrow.
