No, I’m not going to launch into Adelle’s latest and greatest song. Besides, my voice isn’t what it used to be. Not that it was ever within a fraction of hers.

Anybody notice I was gone? Yep, I haven’t posted in over ten days. All is well though. Just a rather tiring business trip. You may remember a while back I did a brief write-up on the accommodations and restaurants in West Bend, Wisconsin USA. You can read about it here. Well, true to form I returned to the frozen north in the middle of winter for a follow-up visit with my client. Long hard days pursued where I left my corporate provided apartment by 8AM every day and never made it back to the apartment before 10PM on any given evening. So basically it was a solid week of long work days, fast dinners and nothing between but rock solid sleep. That is a long way of saying I’ve had zero time for blogging for the past ten days, even if I was compensated to blog!

So to steal from an Aerosmith song “I’m back in the saddle again”.
