It means that the hotel is the most comfortable and quiet and the food is excellent (the table is very well taken care of’). The former Hotel Cro-Magnon, on the road between the hole-in-the-wall Campagne and the village of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil. – Gaia Son

Day & Meyer, packing, shipping and storage, was formed around 1894 by Herbert W. Day (1867-?) and Gustave E. Meyer (1862?-?). They were located downtown on 5th Ave (around 27th St.) and on W. 31st St. until around 1906. They relocated to 341 4th Ave. (southeast corner of 25th St.) in 1906 and then moved uptown to 305 E. 61st St. in 1920. And it was around this time that they merged with Murray & Young, movers, to form the present company. Murray & Young were Thomas F. Murray (1887-?) and Chester Forrest Young (1884-1976). –  W.

Clouds – Amersfoort, NL – Urge For Going – Gaia Son

I awoke today and found
the frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky
then it gobbled summer down
When the sun turns traitor cold
and all the trees are shivering in a naked row
I get the urge for going
But I never seem to go

– Joni Mitchell,  Urge For Going (1966)
