Happy New Year! (And Where Have we Gone?)

Happy New Year to all our readers - or should we say to those who haven't yet deleted us from their bookmarks list out of understandable frustration at our mysterious absence. Did we receive a cease and desist order from Bill Shatner's vast team of toupological lawyers? Did we run out of things to write about? No (if Bill Shatner knows of us, we're sure he likes the attention and maybe he too is ribbing us to return!) and no.

What happened is this: One of the key people responsible for writing up the voluminous research conducted by the William Shatner School of Toupological Studies had the crazy idea of traveling half way round the world in search of new opportunities. Though our staff are paid very well for their hard work, mysteriously, they all choose to funnel that money back into the WSTS, refusing to profit in any way from efforts that, in their eyes, are designed to further the cause of humanity. Thus, they take on other outside work in order to pay the bills. It is a curious and noble arrangement, but such is the level of dedication to the cause of Bill Shatner's toupee.

So this crucial staff member, responsible for much of what we have published in the past number of years, is seeking to gain a new foothold, perhaps offering up some of the skills accrued in Bill Shatner-related writings, and establish a new foundation from whence, once again in relative comfort and security, attentions can rightly return to the singular and crucially important matter of Bill Shatner's toupee, including close analysis of every head scratch, strange patch, mismatch and odd thatch.

We promised we would return and we will. Thanks for all your patience and we look forward as much as you hopefully still do to said staff member getting their act together very soon!
