    Good question. I am sure there were many planning to come to start this autumn. I have not heard whether they are being prevented from coming. I'll keep my ear to the ground and see what happens. ...

    The agricultural economy that is so important to the vast majority of the counties of Ohio would have to shut down completely. No more vegetables for anyone. GH

    My father dearly loved going up to places where one could eat and watch the city or countryside go by (towers, mountaintop restaurants and the like). So I would bet they had dinner there. I can't...

    Ponchi, It was probably about 1975 when my parents took a long (many weeks) trip around South America. They went many places including most of the capital cities. Their favorite capital city was,...

    I was last there in 2011, in both of them. I got very emotional a few times at certain places I saw. The Sarajevo roses seemed interesting, tragic, and disturbing all at the same time. (For...

    Jeff, I really appreciate your effort to make a statement on this, which is a very difficult topic. I am going to add something that is far more frivolous, but serves as an example of where I am. ...
