Oil from Valve cover vent tube?

I have some oil (or something) weeping from the junction of the valve cover vent to the Air/Idle system. It isn't dripping out but it is noticable and it seemed like it started a month ago. Anything to worry about? Any suggestions?

Sounds like everything is functioning well. Your intake pulls this "blow by" oil in for lubrication and "recylcling".
