    nancy — Have not visited the blog or the web site for quite some time, but am still living out the commentary of your reading some two or is it three years ago … can’t remember. And lost the tape, so have to rely on my notes. Annoying! I’ll be in NYC in late December … you’re the best.

    here’s long shot idea for power outage: if you have basic camping equiptment and KOA is close they might have some alternative-powered shower facilities – – outdoor cooking sites or for that matter only for short same day visit to use their site amenities; got email from East coast family traveling when the power went out; their hotel happened to have power (their home did not) they are hoteling until power comes back but said all the hotels around them are booked up but even if they are if hotels have a lobby, bathroom, dining rooms might be good place to decamp from home for an evening or afternoon to get their AC air – best wishes,

  7. I discovered your blog through a posting on FB and am definitely going to follow you and share. Brilliant, astute observations, actually the best I’ve ever read. Thank you for your contributions and insight.
