    1. It is a hand-knit (ClanAran), made by the ladies in Ireland from Aran Sweater Market. While they still offer them, I do not believe they are still made in Ireland, probably now in India.

  4. We were in the Bakaa Valley last week. Volvos like the one in the photo above (and '70's and 80's Mercedes) ALL over the place. Almost (well not really) like being back in Salisbury Conn.

    1. I noticed just the other day how few bricks I've been seeing lately. Must all be in Connecticut

    2. Or in Lebanon according to the other post. Or am I being geographically challenged?
