Out of contact in Wales

Sorry for the radio silence. I've just spent a week in a cottage in Wales (pictured) with the family and dog. We've had no internet access and no mobile phone signal, so it has been a real break: while I took a couple of laptops, I did no work, other than write a few notes on wines drunk.

The cottage was in an idyllic spot, in a natural ampitheatre surrounded by forested hills in three directions, and miles from anywhere. So, lots of long walks with the dog, a couple of days out to the Gower, and long evenings spent in front of the fire watching family films.

I feel bad for not updating the website for a whole week. It's negligent, but I reckon that I've come back much fresher, with a renewed perspective and a strategy for how to grow the site and focus my other activities over the next few months, which in the long term will pay off. I've just finished wading through my inbox, which was 2225 messages, filtered down by Mozilla Thunderbird's spam detector down to 1775 (nice round numbers, those).
More serious wine commentary to follow!!

what are your current up to date (oct 2007) musings on reduction, screwcaps and general closure issues?
thanks so much,

Call it negligent, if you must. I say, we're all entitled to a vacation. The world doesn't start and stop on account of no blogging content. No wine to drink? Now that would be a different story!

Very good! Sounds like a proper break. We need those from time to time.
