Zach, these aerial photographs are great. Thanks.

& now a new book that will interest many:
‘Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune’ by Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Bill Dedman. Here’s a link:

I’ll confess I haven’t read it; just saw it plugged last night on TV.

The Times gave 'Empty Mansions' a very good review, as an intelligent, balanced, non-sensational account and investigation of the Clark story.

As to Mille Fleurs---charming place. But I've said that before, haven't I?

A privilege of age is repeating oneself. Often.
