    Wow... I spent last week on holiday at the NC coast (Bald Head Island http://www.baldheadisland.com/explore/interactive_map.aspx) with my family and basically had no access to Fchat. After the first 24 hours of convulsions and withdrawal problems, I settled into a nice little haze of non-technical relaxation. Maybe I need to get banned or something every few months (?!?!?!) .... it was oddly nice to have a few days without Fchat. No cars on the island, no shops of any significance, no crowds.

    Enough of the kite flying and splashing in the waves with Luca... now its back to work! :)

    Man, if your kid doesn't grow up to be really happy nobody will. Great that you are getting to spend some good times with him while he is young. Work will always be there, and your attention to customers the other 50 weeks per year is plenty (take another vacation in the fall)!!!
    :D

    Looks like you and Luca had a great time Daniel, it really is refreshing to get away and change the scene every now and then. Welcome back. :)

    I am on holiday at the moment, spent the weekend away and now I'm doing odd jobs that have been put off, once these are done i think ill head away again. Life is good. :D

    Mine has been a daily driver since Thursday! To work, then out to play, then home again Thurs (about 50 miles). THen work, out to play, then home again Friday (60 miles). Out wine tasting Saturday (30 miles). Then to sister-in-law's for Father's Day Sunday (70 miles). No problems! (Well, except for "E-5" on the A/C panel, which made the cabin a bit warm).
