Sunday Open Mike [Mike Update 2]

[In case you haven't been keeping up...TOP is on partial hiatus as Editor MJ moves from Wisconsin to New York State. Technical Editor Ctein has been filling in partially with columns and reviews of his own, but the site is being updated only intermittently. This is likely to continue until I am able to close on my new house and get the office set up again.]

The great relocation has happened. Finishing the packing and preparing for the movers was truly grueling and stressful, but Michael and Emily Ray of First Choice Moving came to my rescue and I ended up not having to move myself. I had originally envisioned putting half my stuff in storage (which was accomplished) and then loading the rest into a 15-foot U-Haul Truck, putting my two largish pups in the cab with me, and towing the car behind.

Readers, what are your recommendations? Inquiring minds want to know.
