    You (and diving) have come a long way. I remember Jacques Cousteau and his clunky gear. I can't wait to see where you go next.

    Geila's pictures are lovely. The house I grew up in was Craftsmanlike, with a similar fireplace arrangement. I don't mind the painted woodwork, which looks wonderful there.

    A friend's husband was canned recently. He's about fifty. Odd how that happens. I think he's going to land on his feet, but what a shock.

    I'm sorry savings accounts have been made passe' by aggressive marketing of equities and purposeful lowering of interest rates. It would be nice to have that as a viable option, at least.
