Straight outta San Fran... Rodney checks in with Sean on the latest in his saga to find documentation allowing his return to Sweden.

We hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day last week! Sean had some, ummm, technical difficulties. He has a sneaking suspicion that PostNord is now taking charge of florist deliveries around town. He does have some other highlights to rave about though - including new football classes for his son and his new status as an uncle! Woohoo! Also, Rodney may or may not be starting a midnight BBQ YouTube channel.
