A new five-star review of the GREEN EYES

"What struck me the most, as it did with the sequel, was the plethora of vocabulary, both English and foreign, that truly made the novel unique."---M.D. Prier on Amazon, April 20, 2018

We've arrived



We arrived in Bürchen, CH, three hours ago, and it was 20° centigrade outside (27° below in the valley). The Alps looked like the Himalaya. Still do. Never seen so much snow in April. Happy to be here.

Off to Switzerland for a few days

Above the clouds: the view this afternoon



Very low clouds moving in this afternoon---feels like San Francisco:




It happens rarely, and when it does, it's typically in late April; possibly something to do with the contrast between water- and air temperature. Not photo-shopped, folks, NOT.

Comey compress


Our take from the previews of  James Comey's book A higher Loyality:






Most damaging for Trump is the observation that The Donald never laughs. He is unable to laugh.  And second, obviously, is the recurrent, and convincing comparison of Trump's behavior with that of a Maffia boss.

Not a Godfather movie...(update)


...the man in the middle is actually Michael D. Cohen, Donald Trump's personal lawyer:



And here, a quote from "slimeball" Comey's book: “I once again was having flashbacks to my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob. The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service of some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.”

You know the answer already




(Our friend Susie sends this:)

"Why is it so hard for women to find men that are sensitive, caring, and good-looking?"

"Because those men already have boyfriends."

Yesterday night


We're renting our house during Easter and stay with friends higher up on the hill. This was the view yesterday evening (around 10 PM). On the horizon, to the left, Cannes and its Croisette.
