    Fire burned down most of the house leaving just a shell. No one was killed, although many firefighters suffered lung damage from the smoke. The fire started in the basement when a house staff put hot embers on a woodpile.

    My older two children have made a routine of waving goodbye to me from our kitchen bay window, when I head out down our driveway. Today, my 1 year old figured out the routine. It made me very, very happy, as you can well imagine.
