So, my holidays are calming down, and soon I’ll return to the normal schedule on this blog. I’ve got some cool stuff coming up for the last few days of the year, including a few more in the “42 Historical Objects” series, a year-end recap of my top 10 favorite posts from 2013, and even (GASP!) some blog awards of my own! And there will probably be the requisite posts of weird historical events too.

And yes, I am working on the next chapter of The Armored Satchel, and at least one more chapter will go up before the end of 2013.

Thanks everybody, and I hope your holidays have been as happy and filled with joy as mine have. Cheers!
