It’s no secret that during snow holidays folks like to, eh, unwind a bit. That is half the fun. When folks unwind and send me emails it is the best. It is not fair for me to keep them to myself any longer so with no further ado I give you Volume One:

In 1978, Sam moved his office from one end of the 6200 block of Rittenhouse Street, NW to the other corner of Rittenhouse Street, NW.
