met him only in London once, seemed very kind and enthusiastic about many ideas, he invited me to his ski lodge up in the Canadian mountains, unfortunately I never went there

Sorry - I missed this the other day (it’s been a rough week). I sat next to him on a bus ride at a conference years ago, and he was the sort of guy that you will remember having sat next to! RIP

Did his ancestors come from Poland by any chance? Ziemba is Polish for finch, the bird. Or would it be Galapagos. I saw a dead bird today. Lying still and peaceful like the surrounding forest. Death is just like life - comes in so many flavours.

As bearish says, he was memorable. Our families went to Saratoga together a few years ago, and we co-own(ed) one of those racehorses mentioned in the article. Even getting an email from him was memorable, decoding them was a mammoth task! And, Collector, he was even faster at replying to emails than you!

Travelling to Poland in the festive season is not the most relaxing experience, especially now when they havent yet hired back the staff after the corona lockdown. But Kraków is quite nice in the winter, and close to beautiful mountains - you can visit Zakopane. Prepare some warm clothes though.
I just hope I’ll cosy up on the sofa with my boyfriend and cats. The best winters are in Norway!

That is exactly what I am looking for. I want to experience Poland during the festive season.

just checked price on some gravestones, Ripoff prices in Norway. (Well we have an old stone for such). 

I was thinking of a grave yard for equation project (park), where each stone is inscribed with RIP and the equation (that died, but many still worship) 

(import prices much better, even if we hav e endless local stones)
