The baldie is fled, long live the baldie!

The business (basically a CRM database) passed into better hands in 2012. These materials remain here for cannibalisation and amusement.

The baldie meanwhile has found pastures new: as a singing organ-grinder for your event in the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands or Spain! Town and country walking and study tours in Barcelona and the Western Med

Excellent mashup of the visible and the invisible on the Appian way

Herb Neufeld and colleague take refuge from the traffic. CC Oggie Dog. More.

Robert Kaster & spouse did this, and much, much more, and the resulting book - thanks tender sender! - is thoroughly recommended. (And don't worry: seasoned jaywalkers won't find the first bit anything like as frightening as they did: they're drivers rather than walkers, and I'll bet a really pedantic researcher could dig out something about the dangers of cart traffic in second century Rome.) Recently I also enjoyed the adventures in the Callixtine catacombs (From the oak to the olive, 1868) of Julia Ward Howe - progressive at home, tomb-raider abroad - and Skateboarding on the Appian Way has got to be good.
