Today this dispatch comes to you from the good ‘ole United States!
Since our last round-up of everything that is good and holy on the Internet, we have wrapped up our Balkans road trip, made stops in Nice, France and London. Then we hopped over the giant pond and have been on a frantic tour, seeing friends and family in Boston, Portland (Maine), and Cincinnati. We landed safely in my hometown in Indiana, and today the house is filled with all of my siblings, parents, most of the in-laws…nutty.
It’s manic and I need some quiet time in a dark room with a computer and the world wide web.

For you Americans, have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We’ll be neck deep in all things turkey, and will come up for air on Monday.
