Getting Back in Rhythm

Andy & His Clie CamI am almost back in the swing of regular blog posting after a nice, long independence Day weekend and time spent with our friend Andy Bauer. We had a great time the past two and a half weeks with Andy (who is now safely back in London).

We saw and did quite a bit in two-plus weeks time, including dinner at two very good steakhouses (Butch's Old Casino Steakhouse and Mr. B's Bartolotta Steakhouse), sailing, fireworks, a 4th of July Parade, Old World Wisconsin (a living museum) and much, much more. Hopefully I'll be able to recount a few highlights when I'm back in the rhythm of blogging again.

However, with the combo of Andy's visit and a long 4th of July weekend, it's going to probably take a week to get on my normal posting schedule, so please bear with me. I may just do quickie posts with links until I'm able to get back to more substantive posts.

I should mention that I'm in the midst of a wonderful old Jules Verne novel on my Sony Clie called The Mysterious Island. It's a great story, set in the 1860's and recounts how a crew of Union civil war prisoners escape by stealing a balloon during a hurricane and manage to survive on a remote island. I loved 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, and this one is right up there in quality. Highly recommended!

Okay, off to a few outstanding tasks here... :-)
