August 2012

Greenwoods is such a nice peaceful place. It is just too far from where we stay to go for breakfast. I did go up there, on our last trip, for Irish Soda Bread that was highly recommended by someone, I think, on Channels. They only make the Soda Bread on certain days and I went on the wrong day but I...

My wife doesn’t read channels but I send sections of your posts to her email. Yesterday she said “that lady can writeâ€￾ she especially loved the line “even the older women, let their freak flag fly “, I think she liked it because she fits into that category.

Great report, now I can’t wait to go back. Just a thought on the bites! Check to see if the boat has bedbugs. It’s best to us a magnifier and examine the seams in the mattress and the couch. I know this because my wife does it when we travel. As soon as we go to a new place she examines before w...

Just back

My wife & I just returned after a week in Amsterdam. This was an unplanned trip, unlike our usual trip in May. We have our apartment on a home exchange site and a couple contacted us. They wanted to come to New York last November on short notice. We agreed, as long as we could leave our trip to ...
