Visit to Haverford Pennsylvania

Published by under Uncategorized

Yesterday I dropped off Ananda in Haverford at her school after winter break. Because it was so cold and my trusty old Astro Van’s heater doesn’t work so well anymore, I decided to get a rental car on the way at the Hartsford-Springfield International Airport in Bradley Conncticut. Though I made reservations online the day before, Enterprise car rental was 2008-01-23-001.jpgnot able to supply us with a car. We got one at Budget a couple of blocks down the street even without a reservation and a fine one it was. The Chrysler 300 was all we were hoping for. Not only was it absolutly stylish but it felt like it was glued to the road and it was a great joy to drive.

We arrived in Haverford at 3:00 PM and unloaded the car. Then we went grocery shopping at Whole Foods and took a tour through the Haverford College campus. I noticed that the whole Haverford area is comprised of an eclectic mix of building styles. Very interesting.

On the way back I got stuck in traffic for at least 45 minutes at the George Washington bridge in New York City. The stretch I-91 between New Haven and Bradley had the least traffic of the entire day and it was almost relaxing driving the last part of the day.

Still in the Berkshires

Published by under Uncategorized

2008-01-04-001.jpg2008-01-04-002.jpgSo here I am still up north in the middle of the winter. Last Sunday I moved into an appartment next door that Hartmuth and I had fixed up so we could now work on the one that I have been staying in so far.

We did an expansive job on all the floors throughout the appartment and installed also wall tile in the bath. It came out really nice and I enjoy living in it very much.

2008-01-04-003.jpg2008-01-07-005.jpgMy last job for the winter in the Berkshires is dragging along (even with Carters friendly help) and I just started setting the first tiles.  There is still 3 baths, kitchen, laundry room and entry way to do. Ananda will arrive from California soon and agreed to help some with the tile work. Also Fiona started to help after Christmas.

Christmas in Lee Massachusetts

Published by under Uncategorized

2007-12-24-002.jpgIt got a little bit warmer (just above freezing) today after some really cold weather and one snow storm chasing another. On Christmas Eve it was raining cats and dogs and most of the snow melted.

2007-12-24-001.jpgAll of the care packets from Germany arrived and I diving in moutains of Milka.

Today I prepared 10 Rouladen just for myself. Now I am curious how long they will last.

Water Hot Dogs

Published by under Oddities

Floating hot dog standYou get to see this floating hot dog stand on the weekends at the entrance to Manatee Pocket on the Saint Lucie river in Stuart Florida. People actually stop here after going fishing on the Atlantic all day. I haven’t had one yet so I couldn’t tell you if they’re any good.

Desk in LeeRight now I’m spending too much time trying to figure out how to post text and pictures to my blog using the iPhone. Anyone got that going yet? I’m starting to give up on it.

Hello world!

Published by under Uncategorized

Yes, hello world!First snow in Lee Massachusetts November,20 2007

Finally I have decided to become full fledged member of the internet age society by starting my own web log.

Right now I’m suffering from the SMS (Seasonal Misplacement Syndrome). I really should be in Florida right now, enjoying Carpe Diem and the mild winter there. Instead I’m shoveling snow in Lee Massachusetts. Though it certainly has it’s upsides since I decided to stay home today and upgrade my website with this new feature.

I also decided to add some milestones from my recent life.
