1.47 Deadlines

The First Annual Fall Foliage Tour (even with its stressful bits) turned out rather grand.  Sam got a fat tip from me (for obvious reasons), from Wood (for providing surreptitious Bundesliga scores) and from Beatrice (for carrying her luggage up the trail to the…

1.44 All Roads Lead To Rome
