Choice tables is back at www.nytimes.com this weekend: Geneva.

http://www.nytimes.com/2002/02/17/travel/17TAB.html

And right at the top of their list of five places is a hotel/restaurant that ranks as one of the best memories of my life: Domaine de Chateauvieux, in nearby Satigny. I am tickled to death to read about this place once again!

For those who don't know, Choice Tables is a column in the NYTimes travel section (yes, the Sunday edition is available online almost a full 24 hours before Sunday actually arrives on the US East coast) - - and it is marvelous.

You do have to register to read stories on www.nytimes.com - - but it's free. About 30 other cities in Europe (and many more from around the world, including the US) have appeared there in the last few years.

I see also that there were two other stories in this series last month that I missed: Florence (January 27) and assorted paradors in Spain (January 13). The website leads you to believe that you have to pay to read these, but they are actually free as long as you know the URL - - and that ain't rocket science. Study the example of the story in this week's edition. You can figure it out.

Best wishes... and bon appetit!

Hi Rex. I'm always wondering when req'd to register at a site, how much spam to you receive as a result, etc., etc., I almost never provide that info, but would surely like to access the nytimes travel stuff. What can you tell me?

None, that I know of.

But I am registered at a jillion places all over the internet, not to mention the 4000 times I have given my e-mail address here.

I get 5-10 pieces of spam a week. It goes in cycles. I never reply in any way ("delete me from your list") to any of it. 95% of it gets deleted without even opening it. And "hate mail"? - - which people seem to fear and dread from having a "public persona" on a public message board like this - - I have never received a single piece ever.

I still have a hotmail address (some of my older postings here have that address) and it has been drowning in spam for a long time, and still is. But never any hate mail there either. Who knows why or how these things work the way they do?

I get junk ("snail") mail at home too. Doesn't everyone? Makes equally little impact on me.

I haven't kept tabs on these all year, so tonight's as good a night as any for an update:

Rex,

Thank you for the tip on how to access NY Times travel articles, present and past and at no charge. Just brought up the one about Spanish Paradors from 01/13/2002. It was posted as costing $ to read, but using your advice, it appeared on my screen at no charge.
Many thanks.

I think that they must do this intentionally to promote regular readership. They must know that this "work-around" is possible.

Ordinarily, of course, you wouldn't know that an article exists if you didn't see it "real time", as a regular reader, and make note of it.

Little by little, I have compiled about 30 of these Choice Tables items, and perhaps another 30 general travel articles (URLs) from there. It's pretty amazing what all you can find here with a search of "nytimes".
