Well, friends, I’m back from vacation and ready to rock. And by rock, I mean go back to work for one full week before a holiday next Monday. This week is a pretty quiet week on the holiday front, with no particularly cool foods or people to celebrate…not that I’d turn down a chocolate covered pretzel.
