I’ve mentioned, and shown photos from, my 2019 life planner—a “not-a-bullet-journal” planner that’s based off of some of the ideas that I’ve gleaned from the professional BuJo-ers out there (I’ll link to a few below). One of the most important spreads that I incorporated into the planner this year is a Master Plan spread. In […]
Mundane Missionary…what’s that mean? I am interested in being a missionary. However, being a missionary doesn’t necessitate having to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on training and travel to a foreign mission field. My mission field is where I live, where I work, the people that I interact with, etc., you get the idea. […]
Thanks to my very lovely host, Minéya, for making my stay so comfortable, and for giving me so many tips. And a special thanks to Tafarel who showed me around and looked after me in Recife. It’s only been 4 days but feels like I have known you forever. Keep in touch x

You know that golf cars are great little machines to drive you and your golfing buddies around the course. You also might think of them as moving refreshment stands, bringing you icy beverages and your favorite treats. Some of the posher ones might even hold your clubs or provide a radio—but it’s time to get […]
Keep your story moving by recognizing when too much information (TMI) is weighing down the action. When you are in the flow of reading, you really feel it when the story slows down. What had been a fast-moving adventure becomes like wading through muck. Your eyes start to skim, clawing for a hold on the […]
My last blog was about what to expect with Travel Sonography so today I want to go into more about how to treat and how your treated when you go into a facility during your travel job. We are taught at a young age to “treat people how you want to be treated” but I […]
It’s that time of year again. The Saharan air makes its way south and dries everything out. As I’m writing this today, it has not rained since November. The red dirt on the ground becomes dust and gets kicked up by people, cars, etc. and there is a haze over the city. Many people water […]
You’re trying to get away for the holidays, or maybe you’re a college student in dire need of a Spring Break away from home, so you score some Spirit tickets. There’s only one problem: you don’t want to pay for a bag! The fare would still be cheaper than other airlines, but you’re trying to […]
Good morning! Now to get this blog started off right, I want to talk about Warhammer 40k. And no, I don’t play it. I simply don’t have the patience. The rules read like Greek to me and I just never had the urge. However, I do love two things — painting, and my husband. So, […]
Some attractions at Disneyland (DL), Walt Disney World (WDW) and the Universal parks are nearly 100% outdoors – DL’s Grizzly Peak, WDW’s Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster and UO’s One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish all come to mind. Other attractions (DL’s Radiator Springs Racers, WDW’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Roller Coasters and […]
David Downie is primarily known as a food, wine, and travel writer, but this is not his first work of fiction. Paris: City of Night, a thriller set in Paris, was published in 2009. (And I interviewed him about that book here.) The publisher of his latest book, The Gardener of Eden, has described it […]
Distractions! We live in an overly complicated world. There are distractions everywhere. We can get distracted with life and quit exercising and before we know it our bodies are out of shape. We can get distracted eating what looks appealing. And the next thing we know we have some extra pounds that we are carrying […]
Known for its sandy white beaches, blue lagoons, and coral reefs, the 26 islands that make up Maldives are a little piece of heaven on earth in the Indian Ocean. Long a dream destination for Rahma, she recently had a chance to visit Maldives and sent in this week’s Everyday Postcard.
In my first post on this blog I announced the new Croydon Digital Service. This post expands on that introduction to say more about who we are and what we’re about, for the benefit of our stakeholders, potential recruits and the team itself while we’re still getting started. The Croydon Digital Service is the team […]
