On business travel today and tomorrow.  Not nearly as nice as Nelson. Hoping to catch up later in the week.  Apologies.

I've been sick for the last few days, which is why I haven't been posting.  I'm feeling a bit better now, so I think I'll be back to posting around the weekend if not sooner.

Back from travels and then lost internet in a big storm.  Repairman came today and good to go.

My laptop is dead. It died an honourable death over the weekend. It will take me a day or two to be able to post (hate to write on an iPad), but I will be reading with much enthusiasm.

All,

Tomorrow at 4 pm (GMT-6) my wife and I will be leaving for our first vacation in 7 years. Our son graduates form St Andrews, Scotland, on the 25th, but we need to get away from the routine for a time. So, although I expect to have internet access (Europe is far more civilized than the land of the Mayan ruins), I have to be realistic and understand that I probably will not be able to post daily for the next four weeks.

So if I delay an important post a couple of days, please bear with me. I will be here, reading everything, that is for sure.

Hey, just go ahead and enjoy your vacation and bask in your son's fine accomplishment. Especially since from what I've heard about Scottish weather, that will be about all you can bask in. :)

That seems to be the case, yes. On the other hand, the local whiskies might help bear the weather :)

A trip to visit Scottish castles is on my bucket list.  I'm envious.  It sounds like you will have a grand time visiting ruins in the mountains as opposed to ruins in a jungle.  I'd like to visit the ruins in Belize and Guatemala one day too, though I am less excited about jungles than highlands. :)

If you ever decide to do Tikal, etc., let me know. I can provide a base of operations in the city.

That sounds like an exciting trip.  Have fun!

As for me, something has come up (something good, unless it falls through) and I will probably not be posting until Saturday or Sunday.

Spent the morning looking at period and almost period architecture in Madrid, and the afternoon looking at 16-18th century Spanish paintings in El Prado. Now I know where Don Juan de Austria wants to live... it may not be Versailles, but it is not Connor Castle either. The Royal Palace is HUGE!

I've had the nastiest summer cold and I'm still recuperating. I'm feeling better and hoping to get some replies out soon! Sorry for the delay.

Spent yesterday afternoon at the National Archaeological Museum in Madrid. Saw some very interesting items, like a Quintant (a larger Sextant), a universal equinoctal ring, and several astrolabes. With Mod permission, I intend to introduce them for colour here and there.

This trip is being far more fun that I had initially thought :)
