Yes I’m back, Got in on Saturday afternoon after a 12 hour flight from Auckland, New Zealand, back to good old San Francisco.

My two weeks in New Zealand with my wife Lois was wonderful. Beautiful country with weather similar to our local Northern California weather. As many of you know, our son Karl has been working in Antarctica and we met in New Zealand for two weeks vacation together.

From a 2-week vacation, that is.
Alaska was beautiful and I didn’t get caught by any grizzlies (God knows, they tried), so I guess it was a good vacation.

However, this morning when I got back, I discovered our e-mail server had crashed while I was gone, losing a TON of my old e-mail files. And we have a radically new overly-cumbersome e-mail system that’s going to take a while to figure out, especially how I can export my important files from the old e-mail system to the new one. Etc., etc. … blather blather … more more …

In other words … please give me a day to get my act together and I’ll be back tomorrow (Tuesday) with some interesting things to say about Alaska. Thanks.

See ya. /Gary
