NOBull is Back!

The New Orleans Bulletin has been dormant for some time. Susan (Howell) and I have been living in Cincinnati for the last 7-1/2 years.

We are moving back next month because New Orleans is home. Susan was born and raised in Cincinnati, but after 31 years at the University of New Orleans she became very attached to the area. We also have long-time friends in NO and a network of friends and colleagues that we have kept in touch with during our many trips to NO over the past few years.

Cincinnati is a great place to live, and we have developed some very good friends. Government seems to work here because city services are excellent. The cultural opportunities are many and varied. The weather year-round is better than that in NO, but winters can be long and uncomfortable.

It is often said that Cinci is friendly but not welcoming. We find that our best friends here are from outside the area. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here, but it’s time to move back.

One thing that has been very different here is that we have been retirees during our stay, which we were not in NO. It will be a challenge to fill our days meaningfully in NO, and your suggestions for activities and volunteer opportunities are welcome.
