don’t delay – December Daily 9

do you remember that from tv commercials of yore?  Well I’m feeling it today.  I’ve been wanting to visit the Newport RI mansions at Christmas time for many years.  We’re finally going this year, only I just discovered that my absolute favorite — Beechwood (owned by the Astor family) has been sold to Lawrence Ellison (4th richest man in the world) and is no longer open for tourism.

Well that just sucks.  Of all the Newport mansions this was far and away my favorite and I can completely understand wanting to own it (I sure do), I’m seriously bummed I can’t even visit it any longer.  Sigh…
