Allan wrote some really nice things about our new life, both in emails to me and on one of his non-baseball blog. With his permission, I've collected some of them here.* * * *I drove into town today, thinking I would go to the library and museum, but I forgot they are closed on Monday. I went into the Cafe/Book Nook. Small book area in a semi-lower floor, way more new books than used.

And Uber is going with . . . Bird (looks like)

Five months ago, the Bay Area-based electric scooter rental company Lime joined forces with the ride-hailing giant Uber, which both invested in the company as part of a $335 million round and said it was going to promote Lime in its mobile app. It’s looking now like that may have been a mistake for Lime.

A post about another church… Well, there are some 250 churches / religious buildings in Paris – with a domination of the Roman Catholic ones – some 140 … and so far this blog has only posts about some 50 (and my previous blog less than 10), so there is more to do.
