    Alice: Welcome! Say hi to Salt Lake for me. I grew up at the foot of Mount Olympus and still miss the skiing. (Alas, there is nothing east of Denver that is worth wasting money on.)

    Hi Alice!

    You must be a distant cousin, since we Ristroph’s are a rather unique family this side of the Atlantic.

    Best regards,
