It was all going so well last week, I’d fled the country and escaped the terrible heatwave and was enjoying far more mild temperatures, only to be hit with it’s own heatwave and no air conditioning for relief. For all it’s faults, there are fewer better feelings than landing back in New York after you’ve […]
Happy memorial day weekend! As we consider those who have died while serving the country, it’s also a good time to be grateful that rates of war and battle deaths have gone down dramatically. So all the more reason to raise a glass to those who have both lost their lives, and for, hopefully, more […]
