    One of the great, historic, and beautiful structures of this city, Vickie.

      It’s a wonderful place — is Traxx still open? It was fun to have a restaurant down there, even though it wasn’t as huge as the Harvey House 😉

    Do you think Greece is going to go bust? If it does we should get together and buy an island, or the Acropolis- or at least a beachside town!

        But don’t tell him we want to buy something or they’ll put the price up!

        It’s going to be a nail biting week, banks closed Monday, talk of limiting withdrawals to 50 euros in the days after — the referendum coming a week from now — ΎΔÎșÎŹÏÎ±! (thank you Google translator 😉 ) You will have to keep me posted, I don’t understand any of it, except for the impression that austerity measures are draconian and don’t work. Hey! What are you doing up? Close your eyes and dream a way for us to get a hold of that Acropolis…really good design, that. xox, V

        I think it would make a great summer house 😀
        Btw, next year when the house is in hosting conditions you should come! Do a whole ‘thing’. We’re in the middle of everything. 3.5 hours from Barcelona, Biarritz or the Cote d’Azur. There are 10 bedrooms, we’d barely know if someone was in the house. Mr. Designer Man might enjoy the experience.

        I would LOVE that. Confession: probably what I would love most of all is sitting in your kitchen and volunteering my services as your sous chef 😉 . I will bring you and Mike a case of California wine!

        The last time I had California wine was over 15 years ago! I used to love it. They’re very territorial here. A foreign wine is something approaching treason.
