Buc, Your 8:29 was something I have been writing in my mind since Thursday. Just back from a fire alarm evacuation because the chef decided to pop corn in the microwave and it caught on fire. Had to walk down 4 flights of stairs but managed. About the 30th time I have had to do this in my career of traveling and its never fun. Slaaap Lekker.

Anyone have a 3D Printer? Thinking about getting one. We, including Frederick, have some design needs and creations that need developing. Any experiences appreciated.

My great-grandfather was the first cricket professional at the Aberdeenshire Cricket Club back in 1860-1861. One of the great links courses in the British Isles is The Royal Aberdeen Golf Club. http://www.royalaberdeengolf.com We are in our hotel in Needham but barely. Very bad accident in front of us on the Mass Turnpike about 20 miles out near Southborough. White Honda SUV looks to have lost control and the Jersey blocks on the median. Bag deployed and lots of first responsders. Nice ferry r

Can't wait for 2018 and the US Open at Shinnecock. If we have wind it will be a monster more so than Oakmont this year.

Rocco, What a cutie. Catch you when we go back on the 15th of July to pick him up. Might stay in Boston that time. We are extending our stay to Sunday so we don't miss teh Belgium v. Hungary Euro 16 game.

The UK leaving the EU raises Germany's share to €2.4 billion extra. Until I see Another Bob's scenario play out, I am betting that Boris or the new Leave PM will negotiate an "associate Membership" free of all the bureaucracy. Buckeye, True about travel and visas but the UK was never a member of the Schengen treaty. So nothing really changes there. What's Spain and Portugal going to do? Kick out all the British retirees? That'll show em. Off to the dogs then off to the Bay State for Frederick's Summer camp at Wellesley.

rocco, Thanks for being on top of Durand connection and bringing it to us with the early video. When I saw the father as Amir I thought it was the wrong connection but now I see its Saddique Amir. If the dad is let go and not arrested and incarcirated then we are in stupid but deep doodoo. Rubio and Nelson just as mealy mouth about all this also. Not just Iman Barack. I wouldn't be surprised if the Teleprompter has its own prayer rug. This only devolves the left, the Dems and anyone associated with Iman Barry including Hillary. BTW, the only woman named in the Qu'ran is Mary = Maryam wife of Imran. Which has always put me over the top, expropriating the Mother of Jesus.

Patreaus already has a pardon from Hillary: "Using blunter language than any other Democrat in the last two days, Mrs. Clinton told General Petraeus that his progress report on Iraq required "a willing suspension of disbelief."

Matean not son of Saddique but his father is Amir. Wondering how he missed Grayson?

Lord love a duck, as Narcisco would say: Port St. Lucie. Wait until Rush hears that! The centerpiece of the idiots zoo. I don't remember any Catholics or Jews or Methodists going a rampage because they saw a gay couple kissing. But then religion has nothing to do with it. Its what American's of Afghan heritage WHO happens to be a Muslim. There is syllogism there I am missing part of, isn't there?

pagar, Orlando is no where near Palm Beach or Treasure Coast compared to MIami, Ft. Lauderdale, The Palm Beaches (i.e. Trump's Mar-A-Lago). Could be a distraction since PBC and Broward would be on high alert. This is something our counter-terror people have to get better at especially the local PD's.

In other news. You'd think that France, after Charlie Hebdo and the Stadium/Cafe attacks would be on high teror alert for their Euo2016 soccer championships. But no. Down in Marseille, the English and Russkies have rioting amuk. Then, the Russkies have been able to smuggle flare guns, smoke bombs, truncheons, gum shields and balaclava's into the Stadium for the game and use them. There is a video on Daily Mail of the Russkies firing a flare from their seating area over to the seating itarea of the English fans. Then they chased them with the truncheons covering themselves with the balaclavas. Throwing smoke bombs and security just stood around watching it all. Do you think the DAESH brothers are watching this and gong hmmmmm?

His Brian Ross checked Omar's bon-a-fide's against the roster of Trumpkins and Tea Party activists?

At mass this morning I checked my phone to make sure it was off and I got a Breaking News about a possible terror attack in Orlando at a gay nightclub. 20 killed. Who has the best skinny on all that?

Too bad my MIL isnt around, she'd want to fly over from Belgium just to join a knitting group with a great outcome. Catholic priests are easily manipulated by women their mother's age.

So, a guy, who is a big time gambler, a big time golfer and a big time welcher (according to some but wasn't for long), has to pay a milllion Georges to the SEC for being part of an insider trading scheme and gets off scot free but pays back the dinero, ain't feeling any bother and is tied for the lead in one of the toughest tracks on the tour the week before the US Open. Is that cool or what?

daddy, Not Civitavecchia but Pompeii. But they all look alike. Are you CDG for the Euro2016? Marseille is afire with Russian and English hooligans trying to see who can increase the blood supply on the streets.

Correction: Not Ostia but Citavecchia. Yikes, I need more than glasses I need brain bleach.

TC, Yes. Explo. Last year it was Cardigan Mountain near Dartmouth but this year it was between Explo and Taft. We chose Explo. My aunt was a Wellesley girl. 1935.
daddy, How ironic and coicidental. I ordered "Surely, You're Joking, Mr. Feynman" this morning for Frederick. How about those red apples? I read that a long time ago and enjoyed it immensely. Congrats to the Young daddy girl. CalTech is not a walk in the park and I doubt they worry too much about campus rape crisis or the football team on steroids and taking booster money. Did I ever tell you the football cheer from CalTech? "Repel them, repel them, make them reliquinsh the line".
TC, We're coming back to your neck of the woods around June 25-26 to put Frederick in summer camp at Wellesley (no jokes please but in the summer it is coed). If you, Dave and Rocco and other bay staters are around, Mrs. JiB can be convinced to have a libation or even a repasse or two while there. We are even drawn to L'Espalier, as long as your paying:)
Momto2, Thanks. Typical me, I missed the sale for the one I want. Now the full price is, ahem, hefty. But from the comments worth it. Sold American! as the auctioneer would say on those old Lucky Strike commercials. Anyone remember what LSMFT mean't?:)
