It's hard to get your writers to write for you when your phone is securely tucked in a zip lock bag and stuffed in a "rent-by-the-hour" locker at a waterpark. Also, I've got two words for you "resort wifi." So, this news list is lengthy, but I have nothing but love in my sun-drenched heart for my editorial staff who bravely ran the office while I was away.

I also have nothing but love - the truest, most ardent, excited kind - for y'all and that love could grow into something magical if you joined our merry band of writers and tackled one of these topics. Take a look, take some time, and then pitch us.
