I am pleased to announce…

…the birth of our baby boy – Aidan Gupta (his full name is Aidan Taylor Aulick Gupta) on March 16.  And, therefore, you may not hear from me for a while.  Or….I may be posting more frequently as I am up in the middle of the night rocking this kid back to sleep with my computer on my lap.

FYI –  we chose Aidan both because we thought it was a nice-sounding name and in honor of Aidan of Lindisfarne; thus, he will ever remind us of our wonderful years here in the northeast of England.  For more on the Irish monk whom Bishop Lightfoot named ‘the Apostle of the English’ see (of course) the wikipedia entry HERE.
