Re: Beautiful weather

Lived two years at West Point in the mid 70s. It is a lovely place,  
although when I took a river trip with cadets and remarked on the  
beauty of view of the Academy from the river, my guests said that it  
looked like a penitentiary! Of course they also remarked that when  
they got up at ("0-dark-30) for duty each morning, the lights in the  
monastery across the Hudson had been on for a long time!
