My wife and I run Oak Grove Plantation Bed & Breakfast in Cluster Springs. I am a retired journalist with Associated Press, U.S. News & World Report and the Kiplinger Editors in Washington. Currently I sing in the Washington Men's Camerata in Washington, D.C., except in summer, when I have been in some Prizery productions in South Boston.
