We love Grandparents’ Day (fundraiser day?) at school with Eli and Lucy. All the kids are so cute, but some (ours?) are perhaps cuter than others (theirs?).

It is great to be back in the States after three months in Europe. Not coincidentally we flew London/Seattle just in time to celebrate the Bar Mitzvah of my Grand Nephew Adam Loeb.
He has grown into quite a splendid young man.

If you like impressionism don’t miss the Musée d'Orsay. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world.
The Louvre is quite spectacular too.
The Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge crossing the left bank to the Louvre museum now is home to thousands of love padlocks. Lovers toss the keys into the Seine River locking in their love forever.

We are just outside Paris at the World Series of Poker Europe.
It’s really quite peaceful here.
Today at WSOPE Allyn and I were honored to instruct the dealers with the famous “Shuffle up and deal”. She said it in French. I smiled.
Obviously it is diet time for me again.

During the days we just kept walking this great city.
We spent this afternoon at London’s National Gallery, the fifth most visited art museum in the world, yet just third in London.
Last night, we saw Tony Award winning musical, The Book of Mormon. I highly recommend.
Speaking of recommend, here are some great restaurants:
J. Sheekey near Leicester Square for great oysters and seafood.
Bentleys for same off Regent Street, one of the most beautiful shopping streets in the world.
