RIP Greg

I'm back... returned safely (if exhausted) July 6th. Work has been a bit hectic since then but it's calming down this week. Busy prepping for my skating test July 27th. Whee!

On a *very* sad note, it appears one of my fave restaurants back home, Shari's, has closed. Waaaaaahhhh! This stinks.
