Thank a veteran. It’s that simple. Because every man and woman who ever stepped up and raise their right hand and took the oath and put on a uniform to serve this country has earned our support, our respect, and our undying gratitude. In a time when the country is divided in so many ways […]

I expected to set off some fireworks in yesterday’s blog about the woman being thrown out of the campground swimming pool because she had her two emotional support dogs in the water with her, and I wasn’t disappointed. And while most of the blog comments were positive, I did get hammered by email. One blog […]

I received an email yesterday from an irate woman who wanted me to help spread the word that a campground, whose name I won’t be mentioning here, threw her and her husband out “for no reason at all.” She said they have four Pomeranian dogs, of which two of them are his emotional support animals […]

Built in 1917, the 550 foot long ship was launched in Lorain, Ohio as the Louis W. Hill. In reporting […]

If you enjoy exploring small-town museums as much as we do, make it a point to visit the friendly little town of Wytheville, located in western Virginia at the junctions of Interstates 77 and 81.

This may come as a surprise to some of you, but my beautiful, demure wife has a fetish. Well, to be honest with you, she has a bunch of fetishes. Okay, get your collective minds out of the gutter, that’s not what I mean. These are a different kind of fetish. People have asked what […]

Yesterday was a combination of sadness and happiness for us. Watching the news coverage of Hurricane Michael devastating the Florida Panhandle before moving into Georgia and causing even more damage was a terribly sad thing to see. Having dealt with two major hurricanes of our own in the last two years, we know the pain […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we didn’t plan on evacuating our home here on the Florida coast unless a real biggie of a hurricane is headed our way, I was surprised by the fact that I got not one, not two, not even four, but five emails from people yesterday who are […]

All of the weather forecasters are saying that tropical storm Florence is more than likely going to blow up into a category four hurricane and hit the Carolinas sometime this coming week. None of the models show it making landfall here in Florida, but we are going to see high surf and some heavy rain. […]
