    Are they biting? Who cares? This is my 8th winter in South Florida.  I usually get down here the beginning of November when the notorious heat and humidity are tapering off. It used to be that by Thanksgiving it was sunny with moderate temps and low humidity, not any more.…

    Christmas is here once again, which means New Year’s is a few days away. Time to take stock and plan a path forward. I start with getting the clutter off my desk,  organize my equipment cabinet and get junk out of miscellaneous drawers. You may have similar plans.  As far…

    We had an agenda-free day on the tour so four of us hired a taxi and headed to Cassis, a coastal town along the French Riviera famous for its cliffs, the sheltered inlets called calanques and lots of boats.  For me it was an opportunity to roam around and capture…
