          In the afternoon I went to the infamous Cook County Criminal Courthouse. A 30 min and $20 drive to the south of the city - the city intentionally moved the courthouse out of the way to move the undesirables out of the city..... There is huge corruption and racial issues here. Upon arrival at the court house I felt partly very comfortable- ...

          The Cast: As you may know, I walked the Camino on my own. For this journey I have 3 willing accomplices (victims!?) joining in - Tom (my hubby), his good friend Mike (from Dallas), and my good friend Becky (from Chicago area).

Once on the plane, you can pick any seat to sit in (so, no first class, etc). Our boarding position was in the B's, and I was worried we wouldn't get a seat together. Luckily, there were plenty of seats near the back. Unfortunately, I picked the seat right in front of a crying baby! Because I'm an awesome girlfriend, I gave my boyfriend the window seat (he was super ...

          We all slept in late, and missed the overnight snowfall. Not heavy, but enough to make it exciting for us. We did two mountains of washing for the boys - it was hard to part Paddy from his long johns. The laundry is in the unheated basement, and the overflow from a leaking tap was frozen. This house isn't as nearly as nice as the one in San Fran, although both have provided amusing (not) incidents involving century old plumbing and a giant plunger. ...
