Instead of headphones we've been using earplugs over the Christmas period.

(the neighbours are revolting)

Excellent!  and LOL.  sure, I guess you could also look into a house boat?

Please say hello to Junior et al for me and a toast to Morvigor.

I have a very nice bottle here for Tuesday evening.

Some of the ranges around New England include the Berkshires and the White Mountains.

I found a nice resource published by the Appalachian Mountain Club on the Whites recently:

New Hampshire - the 4,000s - AMC

Right now, I'm focused on long flat work, breaking in new boots, and getting in stride. I will work up to some of those peaks this spring.

The UK is also a favorite and I have not been here yet: Snowdonia National Park in Wales, but drove through Wales some years ago and loved it.

So, will just put one foot in front of the other {repeat ad infinitum!} and see how it goes.

Enjoy your weekend!

Whether your day was min (quiet), or max (chaotic), or minmax minmax minmax (whipsaw), Discreet Music is very nice before sleep. : )

One post makes you larger, and one post makes you small
And the threads that Wilmott gives you, don't do anything at all
Go ask Malice, when he's writing on the wall
 
And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a Fokker–Planck equation has given you the balls
And call Challice, when he's in the hall
 
When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving slow
Go ask Palace, I think he'll know
 
When logic and proportion have fallen NP dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off her head
 
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head
: )
