Back from Vacation w/ Some Interesting Posts

image You’ve probably noticed things have been rather quiet for the last couple weeks here at The CAD Geek. My reason for the silence is simple – vacation. This year I returned once again to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and had a most wonderful time. Among the highlights of this year’s trip was a tour to see the Corolla Wild Horses. Seeing the wild Spanish Mustangs which roam the beaches of Corolla was quite a sight to behold. But like all great vacations – they come to an end all too quickly.

It goes without saying that I ended up neglecting my blog during vacation but alas – I’m back. Since I haven’t necessarily had a chance to prepare a substantial blog entry I figured I’d share some of what I have been reading since my return from vacation.
