Today I saw a tulip

It's about damn time, too! This has been the longest, coldest, wettest, drabbest winter I have ever experienced. I will not be here next winter.

Where to go though, is the question. With my precarious financial situation, it needs to be somewhere inexpensive but even more important than that, it needs to be WARM and SUNNY.

I have options - Mexico is the obvious one. Then there's Ecuador, Land of Eternal Spring, Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica. And now that I am editing online for demandmedia, I can take that with me wherever I go.

So things are looking up - and if I can nail down something with escapeartist, I'll be golden.
