Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire.

New England provides such marvelous contrasts in topographies.



This is in slight contrast to New York (we took these pictures yesterday!).

Happy Holidays



One of the Pair of Nose-to-Nose Pianos (in one room)



)  Manligheter's Per Nilsson 

This year, the solo piano was paired with a bass (in another room).







Cabaret singer and jazz pianist Billy Stritch mesmerized the room when he so generously performed a song for us.







...Bob, Lee Roy, and Per graciously posed together.



May your holidays be as festive as these pants!

The Dogs of Central Park



If one wants to experience New York, one great venue is Central Park, when open, but before 9:00am or after 9:00pm. It is here that New Yorkers can walk their dogs off-lead.  The collection of dogs and owners is almost as wonderful and eclectic as the city itself.  While during the week, the strata are pretty rigid (the same people walk their dogs at 6:15, or 6:45, or 7:15, for example), during the weekend the schedules are relaxed and there is a greater mixing and matching.

Ocean House, Watch Hill, Rhode Island

The New Ocean House


 Ocean House in its older, somewhat rundown state, which had its own charm in 1986.
Originally built in 1868, it was a grand and historic destination.  It was closed in 2004 for a complete renovation (Chuck Royce of Greenwich saved it from being replaced with McMansions). One hundred and forty million dollars, five thousand salvaged artifacts, and almost six years later, it is open again.
