I’m in the middle of a nice vacation, golfing with my Dad, who brought me lots of excellent gifts from California, including some excellent wines from Napa and Sonoma, and a new 40GB iPod, which I’ve already managed to fill quite nicely.

The wish fulfillment continued last week when my brother and his wife gave birth to a healthy – if small – baby boy. So that makes me an uncle!

Wishes fulfilled. Back to regular blogging Wednesday, Sept. 29 or something thereabouts. Now I have to get back to doing really important things, like working on my golf swing and drinking beer with my Dad.
