What’s the best view in San Diego? Easy. Go to Cabrillo National Monument...
The best part of my weekend was spent with a friend checking out Modern Masters at the Denver Art Museum. The exhibition, which is traveling from the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, is the museum’s latest venture into awesomeness. How so? Well, I’m glad you asked… Lately, everything amazing that travels through town seems […]
Another blast of winter for Denver this weekend is bringing snow and freezing temps after nearly a whole week of 50s. Yeah, I know, woe is me…others have dealt with harsher conditions this winter and done just fine. I’ll survive it, too. But it’s got me thinking of a nice beach somewhere in Hawaii, most […]
What’s the best view in San Diego? Easy. Go to Cabrillo National Monument and spin around in a circle. You’ll see the vast Pacific Ocean, south to Mexico, and out over the harbor to downtown San Diego and the mountains beyond. In my two trips to town, I’ve seen no better view. And it’s a […]

They let me use the cars. I’ve never had one of my own that has surpassed 100,000 miles. And definitely not […]
With how cold it’s been in Colorado this past week – not getting above zero one day, and the others always well below as well – I’m dreaming of hiking out in the dessert in Arizona’s Saguaro National Park.
Atlanta, Minneapolis, New York City; all week, people have been complaining about the snow and the cold. Heck, who am I kidding? If you live in Minneapolis, you’ve whined about it all winter long – and, despite knowingly living in such a frozen place, you’re justified in doing so. It’s been bitter cold. Denver doesn’t […]
