Hello Friends, Unfortunately, I was hit by a combination of ailments this week that left me unable to get much work done. It's been a pretty miserable couple of days. I'm better now and back at it, but there's too much of a mountain to climb to get the next episode out on Sunday night. Look for it Tuesday. Then we'll be back on regular schedule for Ep. 7.07. Sorry about that, Mike PS If you are here now because you found yourself waiting, waiting, waiting for the new episode to post and it kept not posting, that means you like Revolutions and it is a meaningful part of your life!
