    It's Anthony Bourdain's view of a perfect day in Budapest. Some of this I've done but much I didn't know about at the time.
    Thank you, sir!

    The DC ballpark is nice , about the same as other new style parks. There is a lot of building in that area of DC, 3 big office buildings going up right near the stadium. Pretty sure that area was rundown for a while before the stadium was built. We stayed a block from the stadium and it's only a few stops on the green line to the museums and other things to see. Giants won so it was a good trip. We got lucky and there was no line at the archives to see Declaration of Independence and other stuff. Also saw art and the new air and space museum.

    we planned to go to Sat. game but found out it was at noon, so we went Friday night instead. Not many June games are at noon but it was Girl Scout day.

    the press box seemed small , it's named for Shirley Povich, the father of Maury Povich. Shirley covered sports for Wash. Post for 50 years. Not many men named Shirley but he's one of them.

    BTW Trump says "maybe" as far as the Caps driving down the street to visit the White House.

    To update my plans, we unfortunately had to scrap Budapest from our list of cities for our upcoming Europen trip. Getting from Ljubljana to Budapest was too much of a logistical nightmare.

    That said, I'll still get two nights in Ljubljana, three nights in Vienna and four nights in Prague, so I have no complaints. Side day trips to Bled, Slovenia and Cesky Krumlov in Czech Republic are also on the itinerary.

    I am heading to my family's 150+ year old cottage on the Quebec/Ontario line in the Outaouis Valley for two weeks. No internet, cell or TV access. It's radio/iPods, reading, floating, swimming, hiking, drinking and eating. The one place I can completely decompress! Heading out with the dogs in early August and I'll be gone for two weeks.

    Sounds like heaven. My family have a place outside of Boone, NC sort of like that, and we've been working on renovations for the last 9 months so I haven't been able to get up there. I love a nice little chunk isolation. Enjoy!

    Congratulations on the addition! Papa's got a brand new bag, Huh?

    I'll also be spending some of this summer at the Urologist, though I'll be delivering some bouncing baby kidney stones in a few weeks.

    Mostly I'll be sweating my @$$ off to make money for a Fall dive trip to Grenada and a Winter dive trip to Ambon, Indonesia.

    As much free time as possible will be spent fishing from my kayak and going to cheer on my wife as she events her horse in NC, SC, VA, Ga, Md, & Pa..

    You two should play Neil Young's 'County Home' there over and over after you get out of your mansions on the hill.

    Guess what I'm listening to now.
