**** Note horrible, shameful typo in the actual blog name: It should have been travelswithbarkleigh, not barkeligh. However this a permalink to the site and I’d have to re-create and do not have time. This is my comeuppance for always correcting other people and it was found by eagle-eye author and great friend Phil Goldberg. Now I am going someone to cringe in private.
