I didn’t start traveling internationally until I became an adult. My first real international travel, requiring jet travel, was to Brazil, back in 1996. Tony was 4, I was 34 🙂 At that time, I was still shooting film, the web was in its infancy, and laptops and cellphones weren’t ubiquitous – digital cameras were just being born. Now, however, that’s certainly not the case. Most people, it seems, have multiples of each product, now, including myself. As I prepared…

Here you can see what represents $94 in cash. Each stack of quarters is $1 and each placeholder of nickels, dimes, or pennies, represents $1 of that denomination. It’s kind of hard to stack 100 pennies or 20 nickels, for example. I’m a saver. When I have loose change floating around in my pocket, backpack, or wherever, I place it in a jar that I have on my dresser. When the jar is nearly full, in this case about 2/3…

My friend, and fellow blogger, Monte has a post on his blog about ink pens. Although the topic, initially, was about pens, it eventually turned to failed appliances. Well, until I read that, everything had been working just fine in my house. But, today, no less than a few hours after reading those comments, my microwave decided to give up the ghost! WTH??? I guess that it was just a bit of solidarity … appliances standing together, or rather falling…

A friend of mine, Gordon, used to joke with me about a previous car that I had when I lived in Texas. Paul. You really care about your car because you wash it once a year, whether it needs it or not! 🙂 ~Gordon And, quite honestly, that’s about the truth of the matter. I don’t really put any time or effort into washing my car. Generally, I let the rain take care of it. My idea of “green” cleaning…

Some psychologists say that about every 7 years, or so, our perspectives change. I rather thank that they’re changing all the while, but we notice quite a difference between the way that we thought 7 years ago and today, if we look back. Yesterday, I received an e-mail from the group that I will be traveling with to Cuba. In the attached PDF, they mentioned that it was usual, and expected, to give the people who posed for your pictures…

Growing up, I remember that there were certain veggies that I resolutely refused to eat, even if threatened with having to go to bed hungry. There were a few other items that I didn’t like, either. Chief among those other items was liver. Still, today, I’m not going near it! However, in an effort to “expand my horizons”, I tried some Brussels Sprouts while I was in NY. Mind you, they were tiny bits in a salad and they had…
