The Princess is still alive and well - she's just vacationing with the Little on Block Island in the New Jersey Sound. Unfortunately, the day after she left her hard drive crashed. She gave me all of her super secret passwords and asked me to let everyone know that she is taking lots of pictures, composing blog posts in her head and as soon as she can either get her (not that old) computer fixed or replaced she will be back to regular posting - with photos even.
Meanwhile - please carry on enjoying the summer without her, but don't forget to check back as she will return.
Thank you - gmarie (otherwise known as "The Queen" or Mom)
