I apologize for the newsletter lapse.  In addition to my travel and 
train job, my-lovely-wife-Cynthia and I are packing to move and 
looking for new digs in southern California.  We're 
selling/giving/dumping a bunch of crap that we've accumulated over the
past 20 years because we're moving from a 2500 ft^2 home to a 
1250 ft^2 condo.  We're keeping our home in Gladstone and plan to move
back some day. 
 
Have fun!
