During one of my trips to London last year, I stayed at a remarkable hotel called The London Outpost. It is a lovely townhouse, located just off Sloane Square. There are only a handful of rooms, the staff all know your name and greet you upon your return. I've stayed there a few times in the past, and this time I was treated to a gorgeous suite, complete with a large sitting area and fireplace.

Each room has its own guest book and I skimmed the pages of the book on my desk. I was very amused by two of the entries:

Nick


Julian


I love the fact that Julian was impressed by both the Continental Breakfast and the Crabtree and Evelyn products. And it's nice that he thinks that Nick's writing is OK.

[I think so too.]

SAVE YOUR CORKS!!

Quote du jour:

We flatter those we scarcely know,/ We please the fleeting guest,/And deal full many a thoughtless blow/ To those who love us best.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850 - 1919) US writer, poet, journalist
