Christmas Gift Ideas: Destination Play Days

When I shop, and especially when I Christmas shop, I search high and low for gifts that are unique and fit my recipient’s personality.  I want the gift to really make them light up with excitement.  I’m not looking for expensive or big, but fun and out-of-the-ordinary.  My three tenets of gift shopping are unique, […]

Touring Germany. The Fast Version.

I’ll wrap up our European vacation with a few pictures of each of the places we visited in Germany. After Belgium, we took the train to Frankfurt, Germany.  While we had a few train mishaps with missed connections, delays, and a few standing-room only legs, I am still a great fan of mass transit.  You […]

Belgium’s Natural Beauty, French Food, and History Was A Great Start For Our Trip

My dad and I returned from our trip to Europe last Wednesday, and I jumped in with both feet to a work project which lasted through the weekend. So, I’m just now getting back on board with normal life. Or as normal as life can be around here. But before I get too far away, […]

When A Trip Plans Itself, It’s Best To Just Play Along

Since I had to cancel the apartment in Nuremberg, we needed a place to stay for three nights. The hotel in Frankfurt let us extend our stay another night, but my dad really wanted to go to Augsburg where he spent some time in the army in 1950ish. Unbeknownst to me, our trip coincided with […]

European Vacation Adventures, or What Else Could Possibly Happen?

My dad and I arrived safely in Belgium Sunday morning. We rented a car to drive to Bastogne, about an hour and a half east of Brussels and only 15 miles or so from the Luxembourg border. I’ve never driven in a foreign country, and this was a great place to get acclimated. The drive […]

Summer Vacation: Family Reunion, Sightseeing, Celebrity Stalking

We recently took a trip to see family.  In true redneck fashion, we made use of what is available to have a good time.  You don’t have to watch your step with these horses.  They might buck you off, if you don’t hang on, though. How many kids can fit into a toddler wading pool?  […]

Memorial Day: The Reason We CAN Barbecue In Peace

Memorial Day is not National Barbecue Day.  Shocking, I know.  Memorial Day was first proclaimed a holiday in 1868 as a day to place flowers on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers in Arlington Cemetery.  By 1890, all the northern states recognized the holiday.  After World War I, all the states began recognizing the […]
