I was away for ten days on the Olympic Peninsula - the first vacation of more than a couple of days that I've had since, uh, 2005? 2004? Too long, anyway. We had a great time; the food was terrible (we are spoiled!) but the sights were great. I'd never seen bald eagles in the wild before, for example. Amazing birds, especially when eight juveniles and four adults are squabbling with each other on a beach.
A few things happened while I was away, and I have a few comments.
P.S. (Added Saturday morning) I was invited to the San Francisco Symphony's Blogger Night too, but since I was 900 miles away....
And speaking of Joshua Kosman, he can consider this encouragement to get back to blogging!
