The weight of the world

Is in my suitcase… Just a quick note to say hi. And bye. CW and I are off to Seattle tomorrow for a fambly vacay cruise. Seattle to Alaska. Should be pretty. I am going to try not to overeat. I am going to fail. It is impossible to pack for these things, by the […]


Ah, Pierogi Fest

Mr. Pierogi and friends Whiting, Indiana. Home of Pierogi Fest. Let me tell you – they take their pierogis seriously there. The festival itself was fun – so much to take in! So many photo opportunities! Alas, the only pierogis we tasted were, for want of a better descriptor, vile. So vile that I only […]

We did it!

We survived the MS Tour de Farms! So it rained the entire first day…so there were massive headwinds the entire second day…whatever! We powered through it and now we’re sore and tired – but victorious! Photos here. P.S. We also survived our disgusting Travelodge room in Dekalb. Seriously. Don’t stay there.

Ashore, mateys.

We have returned at last from the marathon family vay-cay, otherwise known as the Mexican Riviera cruise. A good time was had by all and a lot of food was had by all. Photos are here. P.S. Although, I should mention that, as we waited on board for the ship to set sail, the music […]

Charles Lindbergh, Bob Hope and Reese Witherspoon Slept Here

I am going on a business trip this week—to Wilmington, Delaware. As long as a client is paying for it, the only place to stay in Wilmington is the Hotel du Pont. I was researching the history of the hotel (mainly to find out the degree of high-speed connectivity) and found out that their advertised […]

Home Again

We’re back! Happy to see the kitties and our friends again, but sad to leave Vacation Land and the coast of New England. Had a great time, went to P-town, Martha’s Vineyard, Providence, Portland, Bar Harbor, and back to Cape Cod for Karen’s wedding. The wedding itself was great. Super fun – and excellent to […]

My bags are packed. . .

So, as I am preparing to get out of town on an actual vacation for a few days and totally bored and useless at work today I found myself perusing the TSA website for the latest and greatest list of what you can and can’t take on an airplane. While I am deeply saddened and […]

I Am Alone in a Hotel Room Tonight…

Okay, so I have used this title (or a slight variation) before… Two unfortunate things have happened during my travels the last couple of weeks. 1. When flying from San Jose, California Eastbound last week, I forgot to bring any reading materials. I thought I’d just enjoy the free movie. It was ‘Big Momma’s House […]


Back from our jaunt to Philly. Photos are here and here.
