I'm back!

Sorry for the lack of postings the last several days - I joined my aunt and uncle for a week in Uncle Bill's home town of Hong Kong.

It's an interesting place - and beautiful, but very crowded in the downtown areas. I had a really good time and am glad to have been able to see it and learn more about my Uncle Bill.

For today, I'm getting caught up on emails and news that I missed ... so here are several quotes that seemed timely:

"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." ~ Rahm Emmanuel

"Crisis is the rallying cry of the tyrant." ~ James Madison

"Statists relish 'crises' because they can be used to force more controls into our lives." ~ William P. Hoar

I'd love to see a post about your time in Hong Kong! (Impressions, thoughts, experiences, etc)
