Whilst you and Tom Wiggins were off to the Red Sea Festival it was a  
bit quieter here on DJML.  Those who remained stepped up and kept  
things interesting but it was quieter nonetheless.

  I, for one, was looking forward to accounts of the trip, the  
performances, and the general experience of the event from both of  
you upon your return.  Please don't disappoint us.  Take some time to  
adjust to being back home and to let all of the experiences sink in,  
and then share some of those experiences with us.
