Nice work, indeed. I’m happy to report that after a month off work from illness, I’m reporting to work tomorrow! Let’s raise a glass to good health!

Glad you’re better and back to blogging. I missed the daily TB. Hope you don’t have too much snow.
Hi Nina. Seattle, just 160 miles north got hammered with snow. We got some in higher elevations, but here in the city, no snow at all. Hope all is well with you. I’m thinking of maybe trying to go to the Newport Jazz Festival this summer. I’ve done Monterey three times and Newport looks like it might be fun.
