    As is my custom at this point in the calendar, I'm taking a little time off.

    There's a bit of a difference this year. I'm spending the entire month of July in the Pacific Northwest, where I'll be team-teaching a class with in retail marketing at Portland State University. This is the fulfillment of a longtime dream, and I'm over the moon to have the opportunity. Life is full of promise...

    MNB is on hiatus, and will return on Monday, July 16. This will give me a bit to get my teaching sea legs, as well as some vacation time to spend with Mrs. Content Guy. We're going to explore Portland as well as the Oregon wine country and coastline, and also will be venturing to Seattle for a bit. (This is the first time in 26 years that we've spent two weeks alone. Wish us luck.)

    The MNB archives are, of course, open. I may post the occasional note or picture on Facebook if something catches my fancy, but for the most part, I'm going to go off the radar until the 16th. I hope you'll wish me well, and will welcome me back with open arms when I return.

    Have a great July 4th, a terrific beginning of the summer, and I'll see you soon.

    Slainte! And Fins Up!
