Yesterday I returned from New York City. This in itself is not so special, but I should have returned eight days ago. Those damn volcanic ashes! However, I'll spare you the details since you can hear stories about stranded travellers anywhere now. ;-)
More important is that I managed to look up some interesting graves in the New York areas, among them the legendary actor and playwright Dion Boucicault, author Carson MacCullers (whose "The Member of the Wedding" impressed me much when I was young), singer Geraldine Farrar and, in Philadelphia, scientist/statesman Benjamin Franklin.
After processing the pictures these and more will appear on the site. But things might go slowly, catching up on work must have first priority now!
