Well, here I am in Cape Cod. We had a full bus and then "Barry" decided to join us. We had his rain the whole trip. It took about an hour longer than anticipated.
Our rooms are nice and I have internet connection. I'd be lost if I couldn't communicate. I've become very dependent on my laptop, can't leave home without it.
Only a few short years ago, I had no cell phone, no Palm and no computer, much less a laptop. These are exciting times, you can leave home and not really leave home.
