Day 22: We are still in Florida! But, not for long. Today’s destination: St. Augustine Beach. We haven’t done an official “beach” day yet and I was determined to soak up some sun. We woke at a Flying J near Palm Coast (best night’s sleep ever) and drove on up to St. Augustine Beach. St. […]

In Georgia, a combo-plate Mexican restaurant named La Parrilla felt like a sanctuary There are only two situations that make me lose my appetite: watching breech calves being born on The Incredible Dr. Pol (if you know, you know), and driving behind pickup trucks flying Confederate flags. I saw my first Confederate flag at 12 […]
“We have reached a cruising altitude of 35,000 feet. Sit back and enjoy the flight,” the pilot announced. At the time, I was en route to the East Coast. I settled in to read a magazine for the next 2 1/2 hours. Although I have never been able to sleep on planes, I appreciate getting […]
Wow! What an intense couple of weeks! Yes you read this well… we went all the way to the other side of the world visiting our families (who some hasn’t seen us in years) for just 2 weeks (it actually came down to 12 days). We planned our trip to France back in August 2018 […]

We made it back from Austin on Wednesday, no worse for the wear. We got out just ahead of a line of severe storms that was blowing through Texas that was causing Dallas and Houston to preemptively cancel flights starting right after ours. We left our trusty Honda CR-V in the San Jose airport’s parking […]
This phrase may seem like an oxymoron to many people; salad still has an image problem. A vision of a handful of tired green leaves paired with watery cucumber and flavourless tomatoes still comes to mind when reading the words “served with an accompanying salad” on a menu. Even though this is far from the […]
With the most amazing weather arriving in time for the Easter weekend, it was a good opportunity to start prepping the veg beds. Putting up a protective net to prevent pesky birds and bugs getting to my seedlings should give them more of a fighting chance. The great thing about these nets is that they […]
Good morning, Earthlings! Today is Earth Day – the day when we make an extra special effort to express gratitude and lovingkindness to our incredible Mother Earth! It’s like the Mother’s Day of planets. And although I’m inclined to believe that we should be living like every single day is earth day, sometimes Earth Day is a great starting point for making lasting changes or the kick in the pants we need to get us involved in an environmental community effort.
In fact, just like all our football boots had 4 stripes rather than the famous Adidas three, our train sets were some obscure Italian make called Lima rather than the better known Hornby while our clothes, bikes and regular Christmas presents were hand-me-downs from older siblings or relatives. Not that it mattered as we knew little else and no-one had anything better. There were no comparisons to be made, no other kids with richer parents who showered their offspring with designer gear. We were all in the same metaphorical boat, paddling the same way heading for the same destination; school, work, relationship, home, kids, retirement and death. With luck, along the way, we might earn enough money to buy a music centre or a fridge freezer. On the popular weekly ‘Quiz of the Week from Norwich’ Sale of the Century, Nicholas Parsons promised a vision of an opulent and affluent future revolving around the possession of a food blender or black and white portable TV set.
