Very nice report!

But why the MMS style? Can't you give us more than a bite at a time!

Ever written one of these things? They take forever.

And while I play hard, I also work hard, and when I finish playing, it's time to work. TR comes second to work.

And, FTR, it's not just MMS. Basically every mainstream blogger, aside from DD, has multiple parts, see, e.g. OMAAT, VFTW, HMT, etc. And it's at least partially because it takes so long to write these things.

Maybe MP could help you. Not sure if it happens first or he writes it up first.

I understand completely. But it can feel like hell watching your paradise this way.

Ouch

This I don't understand. My comment was not meant to harm.

I'm still wondering if he made it back from Bali.
