Silence for a Reason

Everything was hunkey and dory going into the final week of holiday prep. With the Christmas letter just barely printed out, we were greeted with a fearsome blue screen of death on the Dell desktop. Frantic calls to nice folks in India produced the sentence you don't wish to hear--catastropic hard drive failure. Luckily the five year old laptop is still chugging, but with the last backup the first of the month there will be some data lost for good. Other than that we are still smiling. The new drive is expected momentarily on the wings of the folks in Brown. Hopefully son Dave of IT and howwastheshow.com fame will be able to help with the installation.

Merry Christmas to all of the one or two people who might read this blog once in a while.
