Oh, but anyway, Toto, we're home. Home! And this is my room, and you're all here. And I'm not gonna leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all, and - oh, Auntie Em - there's no place like home!

Yes indeedy, Toto! We are indeed home from Kiwi-Land with stories of great derring-do to tell, massive meats to eats and slain beasites of all wont to adorn the wall of the Bunker's great room. We also got the World's greatest vegetarian cookbook and a potholder in a sheep motif. Living large, we are!
I'll be updating this post over the course of the day, and of course Wednesday's podcast will be Radio Free Kiwi!
Quick note...amazing how much my country has diminished in the week I've been gone! I left at least a semblance of America, once the greatest country on earth, and returned to Gautamala On The Potomic, a country deeply concerned about "General Lee" salt and pepper shakers, obsessed with the mass production of groom-groom and bride-bride wedding cake toppers and reeling from the worst sturgeon attack in the nation's history.
