Dinner at Matty’s

January 28, 2008

 Again too long a gap between blogs. Now on top of intense production schedule some health problems at home and my pre-occupation with them. My only consolation is that when we come back to New York on Feb. 6 there will be plenty of time until the election to tell the story of our journey […]

January 5 -A bit of Chaos

January 6, 2008

Today I was hoping to spend time describing our last night wonderful meeting with Cliff and Donna Rice who were so gracious to invite us to their house for dinner.
