I just took a water-taxi from the Venice train station, through the canals, to the 15th Century hotel where my family and I are staying -- but the thing I'm really excited about is an email that greeted me via the hotel's wifi system, from the incredibly-talented TONY BARTON, containing a link to pics of the updated versions of his custom-built Maiwand figures.  Here's the LINK -- and here's one tasty sample pic:

That's all for now from the heart of beautiful Venice, where even an entire city of Medieval and Renaissance treasures can't keep a good Maiwander down!
