    I may be wrong but awhile back
    I was traveling and happen to meet
    you while shopping and you mentioned
    about your blog. It seemed interesting
    to me. I was gone for some time
    after that but I finally checked out
    your blog and it's just like you said!

    Well anyway take care and write
    sometime if you ever have time...

  2. I don't envy you that weather report. It is unseasonably cold in Chicago but no snow is expected to accumulate. A little may fall though. I'm vowing only to visit Vermont in the summer. I've never been to that neck of the woods.
