Managed to establish contact with Christine Keller in Buckhannon, West Virginia. She was displaced by the storms that ravaged that state several days ago and was without power, phone or Internet for a week. Happy to report that she will be sending us a whole new collection of her popular and colorful wire rings by the weekend. They will continue to retail for $13 . . . Had a really pleasant chat with Dan Harvey at Grandville Hollow Pottery in Julian, Pa., a few miles north of State College. He makes our "HARRISBURG" pots and we should have some new items for that collection in a month or so. As I reported a few weeks ago, we are discontinuing the pottery that has not been personalized and those pieces remaining can be had for 20% off. A lot of this personalized stuff is purchased by our TripAdvisor visitors looking for a souvenir of the city . . . Peter O'Toole announced today that he has retired from stage and screen. The heat wave calls to mind his first big breakthrough in Lawrence of Arabia . . . Cecilia is biking her way through summer . . .
