Folks, apologies for going dark. After suffering through April allergies – in June – and the loss of my closest family friend, I arrived back in Seattle last weekend and promptly set out to catch up on wine tasting and blogging. It was not to be. My computer imbibed a bottle of Riesling – not even a good one! – which I must note sounds a little bit like the dog ate my homework. This led to numerous interactions with so-called geniuses at the Apple store. Several PCs worth of repairs and a distinct lack of customer service later (is it just me or is Apple slowly becoming everything PC people once despised?), my computer is back in my hands and a safe distance away from any wine bottles. Back in action next week. Enjoy the weekend.
