    My summer "adjunctivity" at Portland State University's Center for Retail Leadership is over (save for the grading of exams). I've said it before and I'll say it again - these weeks in Portland are consistently among the happiest of my professional life, and I love the hours I've spent in the classroom. (Not the mention the time I've spent wandering the city, investigating brewpubs, and venturing out to hiking trails, the spectacular Oregon coast, and some wineries.

    As you read this, I am driving back to Connecticut. I'm not exactly sure how long the drive will take, but I'm going to put MNB on hiatus for a few days until I get back home. I'll post pictures from time to time on Facebook if you want to track our progress, and I'll keep an eye on the news and will file reports and commentary if events warrant it. But I think we'll get back faster and safer if I focus on the traveling and not the writing ... and, as I say, I'll let you know when I'm back by posting MNB.

    Thanks for your patience ... and I'll see you soon.

    Fins Up!
