Rob Neyer is one smart cookie. Glad to see my Giants ranked number 1!
Thank you Diane! Blogging can be a lonely existence so I very much appreciate the feedback. Music critic experience equals zero, but I have always loved going to concerts. Back in the day I saw Zep, The Who, among others. In the mid 70s, I remember someone telling me they went to see Fleetwood Mac when they came to Greensboro, my hometown, that is was an awesome show, and I regretted not going. That was one of the beauties of last night, finally seeing them, and sharing it with R. And I was amazed at how the Mac did seem to defy time. Are you a music fan? Thanks again!

Thanks Jim, I appreciate your comments and hearing from someone with your knowledge. That must have been something to see the seaplanes on the Potomac!
Thanks! Always appreciate re-blogs. Hope you enjoy the book. Mark did a great job.
Reid, You know your Alexandria history. The HABS does call it the Dalton-Herbert House. And it notes the house was recorded as Wise’s Tavern in 1936, and went by other names. By the way, are you related to John Dalton? http://memory.loc.gov/pnp/habshaer/va/va0000/va0098/supp/va0098supp.pdf
Mitchell, I don’t get a lot of comments and feedback so thanks for yours. Bill is a friend so I’m reluctant to criticize him. It’s his writing, not mine. He sent his answers in an email. Your advice about too many exclamation points is excellent. I think I read once where full restraint is a good idea. In Bill’s case he has a strong passion for history. I love his insights so I’ve issued him a full waiver on punctuation :-) Take care and thanks.

I remember the serenity there, the tall majestic trees. Eastern Shore is nice to visit. We went to St Michaels and enjoyed it, even beyond the touristy stuff. We also enjoyed Chestertown and its history.
