Greetings! It has been a long, quiet winter here on FFLibrarian and now I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation; or at least how I imagine that might go. Spring is in full bloom here in Tennessee and it seems like the time is right to finally emerge from the longest break I have ever taken from FFLibrarian. Life is good here in my world and I hope this update finds you all well, too. I really appreciate you guys hanging in here and coming back for the latest and greatest on the 2013 season.
