Even though she's a distant relative I did not solicit her comment here but it really kind of deserves its own posting. She puts words to paper (or LCD) much better than I.

"Blogs, websites, etc are only as important as the people using them like to pretend them to be. It's like creating an invisible friend and an invisible kingdom if you were a small child. It's really only relevant to those who wish to keep pretending it matters. Once someone grows up enough to say it's not really a castle but a bush with a hole in the middle... well, then the pretending isn't so great anymore and cracks start to appear and people move on. Most things on the internet operate on the same principle. Even though the people are real who are posting etc.... everything else is really a make believe world. Would people behave in public with their children, partners, bosses the way they like to behave anonymously on line? Probably not, or the jails would end up being quite full. And the ones who do behave the same in public and online... well those people have a little substance and end up posting blogs on their own, without permission from people who have created a make believe world."

I do like nature in a suburban setting. I am sure the ladies will keep the place very nice for you.

It will at least be a relaxing time after a few months on the road.
