Thanks, Mighty Goods. I'd probably never have thought of getting a guide book for a place where I live, but it might not be a bad idea. I would like to know about locally owned eating and shopping establishments (I'm well versed in the non-locally owned ones, thanks). There are books available for Seattle, or any number of big U.S. cities, for that matter. (How did Rhode Island get its own book?) Hey, Alynda, there is also one for London!
