For the next two weeks, the Footprints will not be on the ceiling, but will be on Marine Street Beach in La Jolla, California.  Yes, The Mixmaster, G-Man, Mrs. C and myself are taking a little vacation.  It’s about freaking time, too!  Anyway, look for some more relaxed blog posts coming soon.  I may even stick a frilly umbrella in my posts from here on out.  Yeah, that’s it.
