I’ve been vacationing in New Zealand since May 14, which is why there’s been nothing here for quite some time. I had been told there would be an internet cafe a few kilometers from the beach house where we were staying, but alas I was misinformed. As a result, I’ve been unable to post as I’d intended, which was at least every few days. Thanks for the e-mails I received inquiring as to my health or other problems I might be experiencing. I’m in Auckland right now, where I’ll be for the last few days before returning home on Thursday. Even now, what internet access I have is spotty at best. Today I’ll be joining Luke Nicholas of Epic Beer for a visit to some Auckland breweries. Look for an article in All About Beer magazine sometime in the next few months. Regular Bulletin posting should begin again on the 30th.
