  12. I would say that college is well attended. The graduates will have no difficulty in finding jobs anywhere in Europe.

  15. Bill, your photography is wonderful! If I could get out of the kitchen and take photos of something besides food once in a while, it would be grand to photograph nothing but dry stone walls (not that we have any of those around here!).

  16. The building's in fine shape. How nice that it's able to respond to Ireland's needs. (BTW: Have you had any problems leaving comments on my blog? A couple of people (who haven't commented much lately) have mentioned that the comment form doesn't autofill with their information. I assume (and hope) it hasn't been a problem for you, right?)

  17. Yay for preparing people for careers. Way back when, there was a hospitality program at the University where my husband went for his graduate degree (not in that field). They put on a wonderful Brunch on most holidays. It was worth saving our pennies for!
