Weekend in Baltimore

Erci and went to Baltimore for a little weekend get-away this to see Rodrigo y Gabriela in concert and to have some time to ourselves. We stayed at Brookshire Suites in the Inner Harbor area (small, but clean with excellent service) and used their complimentary shuttle service to get over to Fells Point for dinner […]

Strange Garmin GPS Error

We’ve had and heavily used a Garmin StreetPilot 2620 for years and years, and it has usually worked very well.

Blue Martini in Bally’s continues to serve excellent martinis, and it was probably a good thing (if mildly disappointing) that […]

I […]

Weekend in Philadelphia

Saturday Erci drove us up to Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia to stay at the posh Rittenhouse Hotel for a couple of nights. We’ll be visiting with Tasha (she took us to a restaurant Jim recommended). This hotel is posh. We were welcomed with champaign and strawberries. Our suite is like a small apartment. They brought […]
