Nope, I haven't crawled under a rock for the past couple of weeks. I took a little vacation time and went to see relatives in Arizona, which was a nice change from the 2 feet of snow in Iowa. I did manage to to get some lessons posted on The Rock House Blog while I was gone though. Hit the archive on the right side if you don't see 'em. I was also glad some of my good ole faithful friends from other blogs I like were working hard while I was playing. Check out some of the highlights from the blog roll.
