Hello! No update this week, I'm afraid. Between a tornado that touched down close by and cut power to Rambles HQ for a day and a hurricane that is even now steaming this way, as well as unanticipated rehearsals for an upcoming production of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" at Rock Ford here in Lancaster, Pa., there just hasn't been the time. So sorry! Please come back next week!!

Apologies to the musicians and authors looking for reviews, as well as the reviewers who took the time to write them and are waiting for them to be posted. Unfortunately, the editor has been down sick -- very sick -- for the past several days and has been unable to prepare this edition. Look for us to return next week.
