Apologies for the post outage. We flew with the dogs to Lisa’s folks in New Jersey yesterday, which is always a long day without blogging. Lisa’s folks picked us up from the airport and fed us some fantastic pulled pork barbecue, which more than made up for the trip (four and a half hours in coach with two dogs that don’t want to go to sleep is always a joy).

Today I hooked up our wireless base station to her mom’s computer and am happily blogging away from the kitchen counter. WiFi is one of those inexhaustable reservoirs of delight. Every time I set up a wireless network in a new place I get that giddy feeling of freedom all over again.
