There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world. Really, when isn’t there? In the moment, it tends to feel as if there’s never been a time like this. Unless you count the time before or the time yet to come. And still, it doesn’t stop pictures of pets or food being posted on… Read more »

Today, it’s about how to turn all those miles, stories and posts into a coherent narrative, or, in English, how the… Read more »

GNABRT Day 87 (really 75) – Eight is enough

It’s finally arrived.  Almost.  Nearly.  Just about. The final game of the Great North American Baseball Road Trip is tomorrow (Sunday, August 23rd) at Marlins Park in Miami.  Once the game is complete, I will have finished my (now) nearly three-month voyage to every baseball park in the major leagues to watch a game.
