How about you do it, Larry?

A) My expertise is but a small fragment of a percentage of a grain of your immeasurable knowledge.

B) Hmmm, I'm down in NJ & PA (home areas), so commuting back and forth to Rhode Island, often from November to July might be a little bit of an expense to justify for the income.

C) The loss of show time and the subsequent income (yup, once in awhile I make an income) might be noticed.

Of course if the income is substantial enough ... PM me the financials :-)

Its a little far for me also. Of course, I could move to Rhode Island and take my laptop. Or perhaps have two homes like the other 1%. But frankly, I'm burned out on running art fairs. I do a little advising nearby, but I'd rather join the Peace Corps.
