Ha – I picked up my rental car to drive to Dulles and it looks somewhat familer – but it’s not a Titanium! I’ve been trying to relax since I returned home from Mexico on May 15th, but seemed overwhelmed by all the stuff one has to do to prepare for never working for a […]

Frogs, bugs and humidity – Welcome back to Piney Point! Whoa – I was hoping for a few weeks of pleasant weather, but the Maryland heat and humidity have already hit.

I gave this young musician 100 pesos, as he really could play. He immediately fetched his even younger brother to secure the money! Cinco de Mayo is really a Mexican-American celebration, but is noted on the calendar here in México as well. It’s really a big thing in the Mexican State of Puebla, but for […]
