For the last few days, I have been getting hundreds of comments of spam advertising everything from mortages to drugs. Fortunately Andy turned me on to Akismet the new free plug in from Word Press to stop comment spam. So far it seems to be working well, so I have stopped requiring accounts for comments again. If you have a Word Press blog, check it out and save the Spam for the eggs.

View from my balconyI have been trying to visit Croatia for a little more than 2 years, and after several aborted efforts I am finally here. The drive in from the airport was beautiful. The photo is a portion of the view from my balcony. I wonder if I am too late to buy land here? Sadly, I am only here in Dubrovnik for 2 nights and then we take the overnight ferry to Italy.

Cinnamon RollsThose are some fine Cinnamon rolls. Soyan made them for a brunch for her friends from BBS. They typify all that I have been savoring on my short trip home.

I have been back in the US for 3 weeks seeing friends, watching TV, eating well, buying technology toys and generally savoring all that is “home” such as it is, since I am homeless. I am sorry I am not more caught up on email, photos or the blog. Somehow having more time to do all this has made me less motivated! I will make an effort to catch up as soon as I am back from today’s trip. Soyan and I leave on a quick business trip to Croatia and Italy in a few hours.

I still owe lots of people pictures and stories from Morocco, but in the meantime here are some new photos from Namibia and Capetown.

Admin note: I have required users to be logged in and registered to comment due to the huge volume of comment spam I am getting.
