    After taking the summer off, the Tuesday Blog returns to its weekly format, and we begin with our monthly selection from the Podcast Vault, as we revisit a montage from March of 2012.

    One of the many things that was on our plate for the past few weeks was packing up two of our kids: one for University, the other (who finished in the spring) finally moving out. With these last two departures, ...
