Late Night Travels

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

First posted March 19, 2009 I traveled for a long time last night and managed to cover a lot of territory.  Some of it was exciting, some inspiring, some sentimental and some just made me smile.  A lot.  I started with the incredible sounds of Il Divo andAmaging Grace.  I just recently discovered this group when a friend sent […]

Did You Do It?

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

Did you go out and enjoy a Chik-Fil-A meal?  I did along with an estimated other 600,000 people.  The place I frequented was wall to wall people and long lines at the drive through.  Over on the mainland down here, it’s quite hat this time of year.  There was outdoor seating, but after checking out […]

  Today I’m traveling to South Dakota to visit the Bear Soldier Tribal Orchard.  Edy’s Fruit Bars has partnered with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to develop Communities Take Root, a program to provide fresh fruit orchards in dozens of communities across the United States.

Night Travels

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

  It’s good.  Very good.  I’m enjoying going over to the mainland on my nightly travels.  Working the night shift is so much better than my Baylor days.  I have a really good team.  My techs are the best in the building.  Not only did I change shifts, I also changed units.  I’m still on […]

Russian Version of Ten Commandments for Nations

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Thou shalt not steal from […]

For the Micro Traveler

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

I’ve found the ideal hotel for a seaman on a limited budget.  It’s actually a good place for all travelers, but after spending ten years at sea, these hotels give me the “just like home” feeling.  It’s the micro hotel and two examples are The Jane Hotel and The Pod Hotel The Pod Hotel offers […]

Port of Call: Dominica

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

 No, I don’t mean the Dominican Republic.   We’re stopping at a small island named Dominica.  Dominica is a nature lover’s paradise in miniature. This little island nation is only 16 miles wide by 29 miles long and nearly two-thirds of it is covered by some of the most pristine rain forest in the world.  Dominica has […]

Ramada Ramblings

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

I stayed at the Ramada Bayside in New Port Richey, FL when I spent a week on the mainland last month.  I checked it out on the web before making my reservations.  Very nice looking rooms and facility.  Well, I have to hand it to the photographer.  The pictures were amazing considering what I encountered […]
