Week End

August 30, 2007


And finally the weekend is here! Oh, yes. I don’t usually work on Friday except for off-site clients. So my weekend begins in 45 minutes. What are my plans for this illustrious Labor Day? NO LABOR. In a nutshell, I will be golfing, eating, biking, eating, watching baseball, eating, buying veal and duck sausages, eating, […]

August 22, 2007


Each year there are a handful of things I mean to do or events I mean to attend—and each one of these things falls aside because I have a dwarf-sized memory. Actually, my memory is pretty good right now and I hope that doesn’t change. In fact, during high school I was able to memorize […]

Sunday in Paris

July 23, 2007


Today we woke up late…for the fifth day in a row. It’s going to be tough when we have to catch an early train to Brussels on Tuesday. After the late wake-up we went to a local cafe for a light breakfast of cafe noisette and a baguette covered in butter. From there we walked […]

Only slightly annoyed cows

July 22, 2007


The cows here aren’t mad, I hope. And who knows? We won’t for about 40 years, so why not eat up. Here’s some fairly rare meat I had for lunch the other day. It was delightful. More to come…
