Dear friends,

I just wanted to let you know that I am sorry for being unable to work on the blog for the past week.  The trip to bury my mother has turned out to be even harder than I feared.  I am leaving tomorrow morning and, God willing, I should be back home on Wednesday.  A huge thank you to Scott and Herb for holding the fort in my absence!

I did follow the events as best I could, including the act of war of Turkey against Russia, and I promise you an analysis as soon as possible.

In the meanwhile, please forgive me my absence and be patient for a few more days, okay?

Hugs to all,

The Saker
