There was a great piece on the radio a week ago describing the "Swiss Cheese Defense" against COVID. Each thing we do to reduce transmission--testing, face masks, closing bars, etc--is like a single...

Hi Sue,

You will not see or experience anything different crossing between Mass and NH. There are no police, no checkpoints, or anything like that. Happy trails!

This is important. I wish the Bob House nothing but health and success, but we've stopped going to two of our favorite Mass places because they were too loose on COVID, even for takeout.

My curiosity satisfied! I regularly see the guy grilling while I'm having a cocktail on the Garwoods deck. It's a lovely spot and I'm not surprised they've done such a beautiful job on the inside

Sorry to read you're on the front lines. My oldest son is a high school teacher in a district with rising numbers. We had dinner a few nights ago, but I think that's going to be it for a while :(
