It happens. I was caught in a meeting and thought I'd scheduled the MHB for today, but somehow didn't. So I've now posted it retroactively at its usual scheduled time. It's mesmerizingly beautiful.

You wouldn't believe how many readers wrote in to complain (or maybe you would). I've had a lot going on today, hence some bad typos earlier as well, so please forgive me. Life gets in the way sometimes. At least what's left of my life.
