I will try to go on vacation next week, keep myself offline if I can. I will not do evening linkfests. I will edit and pre-schedule Guest Blog posts in advance, and probably pop in briefly to post Expeditions posts, Image of the Week and Video of the Week. Who knows, I may write a blog post of my own, just for fun. Be nice to bloggers in their comment threads while I'm gone!
