where reside MARC S. GLASSER, DONNA L. CAMP,
and [occasionally] their son ETHAN GLASSER-CAMP.
Until recently (see below), it was also the residence of the feline HEIFER (a/k/a MooFace).

Yes, those pictures up there are between 15 and 20 years old, but we like them.
Here's a more recent (January 2017) picture of the crew:

We regret to announce the passing of HeiferCat in September 2016 at the age of 20.
Immediate cause is not certain,
but as she was arthritic, asthmatic, diabetic, constipated, and missing one leg and her thyroid,
it's probably simplest to say "old age" and leave it at that.
She will be missed.

Donna is now a septuagenarian. Congratulations!
She's been out of hospitals and rehab centers for eighty-two months now
and is walking and climbing stairs unaided.
In the absence of any further anticipated joint surgery (knock calcium),
she's been filling the medical-expense gap with two cataract surgeries (December 2014–January 2015),
some dental implants, root canals, and bone grafts to the jaw.
The fun never ends!

Ethan's employer of a year or so, SumAll, appears to be moribund,
so The Kid has found new employment with an outfit called Mozilla.
He and his Domestic Partner, Rita, are still in an apartment a mile and a half west of the Cadre
(convenient for his continuing butt-kicking efforts to get his pack-rat parents to clear out the clutter).

His Peace Corps Volunteer blog is still there for the reading.
His 2007 project was shelved for lack of positive feedback,
but may still be downloaded and played with. Perhaps some day the world will yet be ready...
His résumé also remains available.

Marc continues to work approximately 85% of full-time (215 days a year)
at his current (since March 2012) freelance assignment
proofreading and copyediting at a large midtown financial asset management corporation,
and fits a couple of side projects into the other 15%.
At the advanced age of 64, he finds himself a bit more tired by the end of the week
than he used to be, so you'd best not phone before noon on weekends!
Just in case that assignment should softly and suddenly vanish away, here's his résumé.

The final paper collation of APA-NYU was held on April Fools' Day 2004.
The first monthly "collation" of the apa's new electronic incarnation was issued on 5 May 2004.
149 more have followed it so far.
If you missed them, e-mail Marc and ask about getting copies,
and then visit <> to join the e-list.
