Slow Blogging - just arrived home from Baltimore

We just got back from the ACC show in Baltimore, a show where many of our friends gather and we look for new art for the gallery.

We stayed at the new Hilton which takes up 2 city blocks and is connected to the convention by a covered heated walkway. The hotel is beautiful! It opened in August 2008. It is a little pricey and doesn't have the view we've had before when we stayed at the Hyatt or at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, but the room was fabulous.

I would recommend any of the hotels I've mentioned.

We didn't even leave the hotel to eat and the food was great.

As far as the art - we ordered tiles, jewelry, wood boxes and photo frames, bread boards and can't wait until they come!

When we first started going Philadelphia we rode the train from Wilson or Selma, we passed through Ashland, VA and it looked like a neat little town through the window. About 4 years ago we stopped there on our way north and ate lunch at the Iron Steamer. It was great! I remember there was green chili on the menu and our friend John grumbled about soups being called chili (John likes to pick on people!) and the waitress said "there is nothing not to like about it!" She was right we all had it and it was wonderful.

So this time we stopped again and had lunch. The little downtown calls itself "the center of the universe". Hmmmmmmmmmm, I thought that was New Bern, anyway, again, lunch was fabulous.
