Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is the third in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

I think we are both over the worst of the fatigue from our recent stressful travels and things are starting to get back to normal around here. Hopefully it will stay that way for a while. This time of year you can expect thunderstorms just about every afternoon here on the the Florida coast, so […]

Yesterday was another long day at my desk working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, but I’m making good progress and beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s always a good thing. Laying out the first half of the paper, which consists mostly of Letters to the Editor […]

We are definitely in the rainy season here on the Florida coast. Just about every afternoon we watch the clouds build up and then they let loose and we get a downpour, usually accompanied by lots of thunder and lightning. A door next to my desk opens onto a small carport on the side of […]

Note: This story is from the November-December 2011 issue of the Gypsy Journal. As soon as we hit the road as fulltime RVers, people began telling us about North Dakota’s Enchanted Highway, a 32 mile long stretch of two lane road between Interstate 94 and the little hamlet of Regent, to the south. The Enchanted Highway’s claim to fame […]

We have been on the go so much lately that we really needed a day at home just to recharge our batteries and get caught up on things around here. So we never left the house yesterday, which was just fine with both of us. We slept in a bit and then after breakfast we […]

You all know what that is, right? That’s all the misinformation, innuendo, and BS that anybody associated with politics and the media puts out these days. Well, apparently I’m just as guilty as the rest of them. But in my defense, I really couldn’t help it. After all, besides publishing the Gypsy Journal for the […]

This is going to be a long blog because I’ve got two days to tell you about and a lot’s been happening in those two days. And, I’m going to do a bit of bitching, so be prepared. I told you so! We left our home in Edgewater, Florida a little before noon on Friday […]

Note: This story is from the September-October, 2013 issue of the Gypsy Journal. You don’t have to be British to appreciate tea. Just ask the folks at Celestial Seasonings in Boulder, Colorado! Started by hippies gathering herbs in the Rocky Mountain foothills in 1969, with a vision of making the world a better place by […]
