Baby it's cold outside!

Had the opportunity to shoot off to Portsmouth, New Hampshire for a conference. I think the corridor between Boston and Portsmouth MUST have the world's highest contcentration of Dunkin' Donuts (and anectdotal evidence suggests our Consulate in Mumbai processes the highest number of Dunkin' Donuts worker visas).

After the conference, I met Colleen in Boston for a girls' weekend. Amazing to enjoy fabulous company, cold weather, plenty o' Starbucks, and some Christmas shopping.

Happy Halloween...

Finally catching up a bit on posts. Camera died on Halloween morning so relying on the generosity of friendds to provide to goods. Great party with lots of fun activities for the kids including bobbing for donuts (more hygienic than apples) and a visit by Darth Vader. Liam was Ben 10 for the day - finally had to wrestle a very sweaty boy out of the costume at bedtime. He attended a party on our roof and then went trick or treating to the nine apartments here. Fast but managed to feel like Halloween despite the 90 degree temperatures and lack of real pumpkins.
