Yet another ill-titled call for assistance

September 29, 2007


I am sick to death of not driving. What does a girl have to do to find a reliable driving instructor, with an automatic car, to teach her to drive? If you know of one, let me know. He has to be willing to pick me up from my place in Heliopolis – I will […]

The globe trotters

September 23, 2007


E and I want to go on vacation during the last few days of December and over New Year’s – but we don’t know where to go. We want someplace that won’t be snowy. Or icy. Does anyone have any suggestions for what wouldn’t be freezing that time of year? If you can think of […]
