I am actually on holiday in Canada for the next two weeks. So posting is apt to be light.  I apologize if I don’t respond diligently to e-mails.

I am looking forward to this because the weather here (Simcoe County, Ontario) is amazing and it feels a world away.

In the meantime, here are a few news items from around the web.
