Trying to get the field trip organised. I have contacted almost everybody but can't give firm dates yet. I have my travel agent working on it. As last time, there is a lot of "overhead" and only about a third of my time will be in the archives. Junked the London stopover, even though it would have only been three days. When will I learn? You need to take several months off at a time.
Work threw a farewell for Geoff. He wasn't as bitter as one might have reasonably expected. Very nice restaurant. Specialties include duck pancakes and the best mussels I've had in ages.
