I'm skipping town for the next couple of weeks to get married and then take a Caribbean honeymoon. What a summer!

Ernesto will take over website duties while I'm gone, but the e-bulletin will take a vacation next week and be back the week of the 25th. I'll miss you dearly, handful of anonymous readers (and Mom). Would you like a souvenir? Perhaps a seashell with some googly eyes? A Caribbean snow globe? Some authentic basketry, handcrafted in Shenzhen? I'll be sure to bring you something special.

As the islanders say, auf Wiedersehen!
