Am adventuring in the (mainly) childless reaches of Northern Portugal - tomorrow and the weekend will be spent in the Duro valley, drinking Port.
We return to (fat) civilization Monday next and I will try to be acerbicly present by Tuesday or Wednesday - after some needed but minor medical/dental attention.
Thanks for the emails - even those that have so far gone unanswered. Have been very busy and not had much time to do much other than read Automatic Earth, Naked Capitalism and a bit of Bloomberg.
See you soon.
