Broken phone

Hello all,

My phone is broken and I expect I won't receive a replacement until at least next Friday. (The $7 monthly insurance has paid off, though, saving me about $120 on the replacement!)

Meanwhile, email me if you need to get in touch, or catch me at the hotel Monday mornings and Thursday and Friday evenings.
