Feeling a bit better, despite the incessant cries and hammering of what Son Guy and I have  come to call  "Dracula's Minions" at the apartment house restoration across the alley. For weeks, they had either run out of money or worked inside, but today, they unlimbered a crane and a...

The occasion was an unusual one because Son Guy and I stayed up so late last night that we slept into the afternoon, missing our coffee date with Son Jason.   Fortunately, Guy saved the day by completing his cooking of a huge, beautiful Boeuf Bourguignon, which we ate in the early evening....

   I have trouble understanding how 3 seemingly bright young Americans were captured 'hiking' in Iraq. What in the hell were they thinking? Who goes 'hiking' in Iraq for godsakes? Didn't they realize there is a war going on? Aren't there thousands of beautiful places to 'hike' that aren't...
