As the last thread for abscences and travels got hijacked I'm starting a new one. I think we can see who is away more easily if this thread is restricted just to the abscence notice, with no ramblings, or even "have a good holiday" messages.
I'm away now until September 3rd or thereabouts - have a good time.

Irregardless of my wilfully incorrect use of words and phrases in this post, I will be "out of pocket" for the last two weeks of August, but am presently present.

Wow, it was hard to use that phrase that way. Never again.

I might as well announce that my on-and-off attendance will continue for a while as I am concentrating on survival things - like a job and a house in Britain. I'm really only doing I&A and that is partly because I'm still announcing the instalments of the Great Big Travel Thingy ...

But I miss the fun, and I will be back full time ASAP.

Well, I'm getting more and more busy with writing up, organising my move and planning for my near-future, so I might just as well say now that I probably won't be able to spend much time visiting the board over the next two to three weeks. And then I am moving away, and it's anybody's guess when I'll get myself back on the (I)internet... I'll try to keep in touch by e-mail with a few of you, but re-settling down is hard work, so I can't promise anything. I'll be back as soon as it's feasible...

Thanks for the friendship and fun. I miss this place already!

Oh so very interesting - a week of training for work, a day off for my elder son's birthday (he can't really be FOUR YEARS OLD, can he?), and then a work trip to the Arizona desert. Life's usual hodge-podge (and where does that word come from??).

atomica provides this:

Middle English hochepot, from Old French, mixture, stew : hocher, to shake together; see hotch + pot, pot.

neat =)

and a very happy birthday in advance to your biggest baby tree frog; hard to believe my own daughter is turning *five* just a day afterward. time's a-flyin, indeed.
