Anyone looking to add a feline friend to their family? I’m missing my sweet Mickey who headed off to The Rainbow Bridge last month and not quite ready for another cat, although I’m thinking Sunny would like another sibling someday.
How does this post relate to travel? Exploration, discovery and adventure are part of the traveling experience but so is knowing I have a home to return to with my own bed to sleep in, couch to veg out on and cat to snuggle up with – after I’ve scooped the litter box. Everyone needs a fur-child in their life.Read More
“What are the must-see highlights at Kennedy Space Center?” my brother recently asked. We visited KSC as kids and now 30-plus years later he was planning a visit with his family this summer.
Although not intentional, their visit coincided with the Kennedy Space Center’s 50th anniversary (happening now!) and access to view space shuttle Atlantis during the Vehicle Assembly Building Tour, a KSC Up Close Tour.

“Casa-DAHpizzah!” is how Bea of the Buffalo, N.Y., restaurant Casa-di-Pizza answered the phone each time radio personalities Taylor & Moore of station 103 WPHD called. Bea was a familiar and loveable voice on Buffalo morning radio while I was growing up in the ’80s.
Everyone was called “Sweetie” and she had an interesting perspective on life, as you can hear in these radio clips. For instance, in radio clip one under “Bea,” with confidence she recounted the history of trick-or-treat beginning when Christopher Columbus landed in America. Ah, I feel very nostalgic listening to those clips. Life was so simple as a teenager.Read More
