I'm Baaa-aaack

It was a long and much-needed vacation, but I’m back home and behind they keyboard. If you’ve been following me on Twitter or via my Flickr photostream, you’ve seen some of the things I’ve seen and done. Many, many more pics are forthcoming.

Of course, if you weren’t following either Flickr or Twitter, you probably thought I croaked or something because once again Twitter Tools didn’t post my Twitter digests as blog posts. I hate seeing long gaps in posts, and that was supposed to fill the void. Unfortunately it hasn’t worked since they upgraded their stuff, and I can’t upgrade my WordPress because my hosting company is holding me hostage (trying to get me to buy an expensive package), so I’m probably going to dump them and try another host.

Which means another downtime period in the coming weeks while things switch over. Ah well, it’ll be worth it.

If you ever have an opportunity to visit Hawaii, go. We had a great time on the Big Island and we’ve already decided it’s somewhere we’ll want to visit again. Wonderful weather, plenty to see and do, and generally just a great place. The Wife and I both joked about moving to Kona, and after a minute or two, we weren’t sure we were really joking.

I wonder if the schools out there need a good tech director…

    I wondered where you had gone.

    I got to go to Maui back in spring of 86 with my folks and sister for about 10 days….it was a blast. Went snorkeling off our back patio and saw many tropical fishe and an octopus and cobalt blue sea urchins…..never try to grab a cobalt blue sea urchin to maintain your position in the rolling waves.

    Welcome back,

      Maui is the only island the group we traveled with hasn’t been to. They may rectify that in the future. I just hope we can afford to go again, as we had a great time!

      We saw some black urchins on the Big Island. Didn’t try to touch them, though. ;)
