If you stay in one place, the holiday passes like a flash, but if you go to three places, the holiday seems to last at least three times as long.

      Thanks so much! I have found almost exclusively good people as I have been roaming. I love to toss that back at the cynical conventional wisdom. ๐Ÿ™‚
