Post #501 (Or Moving To A New Home)

I think it's appropriate, having just passed the 500th post, for me to announce that Zippy will now be living elsewhere, with a slightly changed appearance, but still overflowing with all the enriching, stimulating, and always changing content you've come to expect from the Fish. So don't wait. Run to join in the excitement going on over at http://blog.peterschrock.com.

Defense

Nevertheless, I would advise you against defensiveness on principle. It precludes the best eventualities along with the worst. At the most basic level, it expresses a lack of faith. As I have said, the worst eventualities can have great value as experience. And often enough, when we think we are protecting ourselves, we are struggling against our rescuer.
