I was inspired, if that is the right word (it isn’t), to start this blog to save on postcards during a three week trip though the center of Europe. Rather than continue to communicate only by email, I have decided to collect a series of blogs on this web page and share them with friends, isolated by topic. Feel free to comment or ignore as fits your fancy.
In addition to a gush of gratuitous observations and comments, I hope to use this site to post opinions (social and political), duplicate bridge whatever, and a hiking blog if I succeed talking a group of teenagers into joining me once or twice a month. Kids of often have more interesting things to say than people my age, so they might rescue this site from stultification, a heavy lift.
