Back from the 'Burgh

Just got back from Pittsburgh this evening. Wonderful weekend -- and I say it again, what a wonderful city. The game was tighter than it should have been, the Steelers letting up in the second half, but a win is a win. And dinner at Isabela was, as usual, outstanding. (The owner, Mr. George Merrick, even picked us up at our hotel and then drove us home, after we phoned to say we were going to be late due to terrible traffic on the way into the city. He and his staff just wanted to relieve our stress and make us feel comfortable. That sort of hospitality and generosity is exceptional, yes, but also characteristic of the city and its people.)

But now I'm quite exhausted after a couple of busy days and a long day of driving today, with some shopping along the way. I'll get back to blogging soon.

Stay tuned for new posts.
