Re: About Tony...We were talking...


Janice did ask for suggestions.
Think cool rainy winters, warm summers with frequent precipitation. Low
humidity, rain freshens the air, doesn't make it feel steamy. Fairly windy,
depending on site. Columbia River up to a few miles to the south, Pacific
Ocean more miles to the west.
I need your snail mail too Melody.
