I took a long weekend. Unfortunately I took my laptop with me and even more unfortunately it didn't like traveling as evidenced by a complete failure to launch after I returned on Monday. Sooo ... I've spent the last couple of days putting my life and business back together (thank you DropBox for being there). Its so hard to get all the systems, programs, passwords, documents etc. all back together again in one place. Maddening actually. But I'm making headway enough to write this anyway. Lots to say due to time away so somewhat abbreviated. Even with the time in between postings, this is an incredible amount of inventory going pending and sold.
