I know you, my readers, are hoping to see more of Ron's pictures from his trip to Norway. Well, he is working on them but he has also been very very busy so just be patient--they will appear and they are definitely worth the wait.

My entertainment lately is to catch up on a lot of missed TV programs--via the Internet. One of those is the HBO series "TREME". So far I have only seen the first episode but it brought back an intense wave of nostalgia (the wonderful music) and a deep sadness (the program begins only a few days following Katrina). As yet I have not formed an opinion on the show but there is a stark reality to what I have seen so far.
