A lot has happened since I last posted. I've been halfway around the world and got a new part time job. I went to work for state Board of Equalization in early August. I like it, except for commuting downtown, and the work is not hard. I get to see people two days a week.
The trip of a lifetime #1 is in the books. I spent twelve days traveling through Europe and had a ball! Buckingham Palace, Oberammagau (Sp?), the Seine, the Rhine, Rome, Florence, Venice, Lucine, the Train Ride, the Palace at Versailles (SP?), the Moulon Rouge, the Eiffel tower, too much! My favorite was Florence. I could long-term visit there. The trip was "If It's Tuesday, it Must Be Belgium." genre. Very fast and I wanted to stay longer, which set me up for another tour.
