Yeah, yeah. We’ve been very neglectful of the blog since I went to NYC and brought my husband home with me. I had every intention of writing up a big detailed post about my trip to NYC, but it seems so far back in the misty past now that I probably couldn’t remember everything we… Continue reading Long Awaited?

I understand that he made another pilgrimage to Good Enough To Eat before heading… Continue reading Paul in NYC – Monday
Sunday – February 5th I know that Paul is a big fan of the perennial college favorite Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately, SNL tickets are even more difficult to come by than Spamalot tickets.
