You may not know who Albert Hammond is, but if you ever meet him, don’t believe a word he says. The man is a liar! No, Mr. Hammond is not an RV salesman, nor is he peddling campground memberships. Albert Hammond is a British singer/songwriter perhaps best known for his 1972 hit It Never Rains […]

Sometimes I wonder how some people ever get to the point in life where they can afford an RV and become fulltime RVers, or even weekend campers, because they are just so…. well, there’s no other way to say it….so dumb! One of the good things about my job is that I get a lot […]

The carnies are coming! The carnies are coming! Oh my, what should we do? The fairgrounds is gearing up for the annual Pima County Fair, April 14-24, and for the last few days carnival workers have been arriving at the fairgrounds RV park. In fact, as it turns out, the folks who I wrote about […]

Don Bingham, a faithful blog reader and newly retired Apple employee, contacted me to congratulate me on my new iPad and to tell me that he wanted to present me with three great apps; Apple Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, […]

When I checked my e-mail yesterday morning, I had a message from Verizon Wireless that an update for my Blackberry Storm was available, which was supposed to be the latest and greatest thing since sliced bread. So, being the trusting soul I am, I plugged my phone into my computer, logged onto the Verizon website, […]

The title of today’s blog says it all. That’s how I feel sometimes, including right now. About the time I think I have a good handle on something, some unforeseen and unexplainable problem shows up. After a couple of years of experimenting, we launched our digital edition of the Gypsy Journal several issues back, and […]
