On vacation, and on TV

This vacation is paid time off, btw. I’ll be off all this week on a road trip to Arizona. (Road trip!!) Unless my motel has a computer room, which it probably won’t, I’m unlikely to have Internet access, so don’t freak out if your comments don’t get posted for a few days.

[Update: They have a computer here in the lobby of the Super 8 Motel in Tempe, so here I am at 9 p.m. Monday, posting your comments!]

Check back here, because a Restaurant of the Week will pop up here later in the week. And I’ve managed to slap together three columns to run this week. You’ll hardly know I’m gone.

Adding to my near-omnipresence, look for me sometime this week on ABC Channel 7: Consumer reporter Ric Romero interviewed me Friday morning in my living room (!) for a piece on digital converter boxes.

The station had contacted me after finding my February column online. That column was partly about my post-conversion inability to get Channel 7, until learning ABC was also broadcast on Channel 53, which does come in on my TV.

Romero didn’t know when his piece would run, but probably this week, on the nightly news. (This is what the news biz has come to: Journalists interviewing other journalists.)

Of course, if it runs this week, I may miss the whole thing, but maybe it will be online.

    I hope you will be seeing Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon and Slide Rock. The Quality Inn in Sedona has views to die for and a restaurant with almost non-existent service, but the bourbon steak was worth the wait. (I admit this visit was about 10 years ago, but I still dream about it. Hopefully, nothing has changed.)

    [I've done Sedona. This trip was all in the Phoenix area. -- DA]

    Keep your car doors locked in Phoenix. I just heard that it is the kidnap capital of the U.S.

    [Yikes! -- DA]
