You may have noticed that the Blog has been a bit sparse over the last week. The reason for the lull in posting was that I was on vacation. Billy held down the fort while I went to Florida to see our parents, and then to Colorado for a little late season skiing and time with friends. It was a great trip and a good way to recharge the batteries. That being said, one of the best parts of going on vacation is coming home to Maui. As soon as I got off the plane last night and felt the warm night air, heard the sound of palms rustling and felt the light sprinkle of a tropical shower, I knew I was home. Maui is a truly special place.
