June 5, 2013 — Take a drive through almost any city in America at this time of the year and you’ll see signs up in many neighborhoods proclaiming VBS! It’s usually accompanied by fine print for us heathens to remember it means something other than Visual Basic Scripting. Most times, it means Vacation Bible School, but if you were to see such a sign in a certain part of Redmond, WA, if could just be someone with my odd sense of humor. “What’s this VES stuff, Ure?” Indeed: Vacation Economics School…wherein we provide some cost comparisons between different vacation modalities. After a Danish, a splash of Mrs. Olson’s (if double Daning can be forgiven), after a look at just crossing headlines, you’ll read Brother Ure’s preach on the Gospel of More Time Off. In Excel see us, daily, et cetera.
