I’ve got some great new content planned for the blog through the end of 2010.  In fact, I have about 30 draft posts started, I’m going to add a picture gallery of hotels and travel items, and my next topic will be “Selecting Qualified Investigators“.  I just haven’t been able to focus on polishing off any of the articles yet but please look for an update again before the end of March.  Sorry for the hiatus but the end of 2009 was a bit rocky and 2010 has been BUSY.  The climate last year was awfully uncertain at my old company despite a fabulous boss and a balance of interesting assignments so I needed to make a change.  I accepted a position at a different company last November and they have kept me occupied learning all the new systems and refining my monitoring skills.  However, I was able to take a relaxing vacation recently and I am totally restored.  I am now back in the office and getting organized.  Once I check off my to-do list at the day job I will spend some energy back here on the blog.

I just wanted to send a quick update to let you all know that I am very very happy, healthy, and excited about getting back to blogging just as soon as possible.  Thanks everyone for your continued readership plus all the comments and emails.  Please let me know if there are specific topics you want to see so I can prioritize everything I have on the back burner.
