It's been a while since I posted. OK, more than a while. First, I decided to take a break this summer after our whirlwind Around The World tour and other trips last spring. Second, the technology gods struck. Big time. So after several fits and starts, including having to repost this blog to reconnect all the "bits and bobs" (my apologies), I'm back on track. Or at least let's hope. August was another crazy month of travel. A trip to Florida (did I say it was August?) to see my nephew graduate from college, up to Tahoe for a weekend gathering, and finally a great week on the island of Hawai'i, aka the "The Big Island", for a dear friend's big birthday. Aloha!
