Vacation: I'm not here right now. I'm off on my annual trek someplace--this time France. I'll try to log on and visit, but I'm not sure if I'll have internet on this day. If I can't be here, I'll catch up with what happens when I can or when I return. I look forward to finding out who the winners are in the Contest.
