Another Top Tip

I have been away in my own private Idaho. Plus working. Yawn.


As partial recompense for for ignoring you and then boring you here's some music by a great group with a great name: Alabama Shakes. They have a genuinely brilliant genuinely American girl singer who looks like someone who sat next to you in history class (named, alas, Brittany). Still, you'll love it - oh the guitars. Try "Hold On" for starters. More great stuff follows.

A Little Romance...

Stick season is upon us here on the Canadian Border. I was looking back at some of the pictures I took this summer (sigh) and found this one of a road on Shelburne Farms, once the home place of the Vanderbilts. If you haven't been, you should come up here and have your heart broken by the place.

You might want to wait til next summer at this point, though.
