dear reader, i lease our house out some 20 times a year. I am a widowed father of two, so the income is welcomed. But as important, sharing our home with various groupings does so much good. Groups of 10 to 12 cook, laugh, walk, and play games. The face time rivals that at summer camp. But these are adults. For Reunions, Graduations, Birthdays or choosing a city to explore, Airbnb provides the hub. Testimonials from departing guests many times equate the experience of the city, with the experience of their home accommodations. thanks, peter staats
