I just returned from a dream vacation, Paris to Lyon and a cruise on the Rhone River. I ate new foods, tasted wonderful wine and saw monuments and lavender fields. This was a “check this off the list” sort of trip. Paris was a wonderful city and I could stay for months and never see … More A Divine French Holiday

When we landed we were supposed to be picked up by the tour company. Several of the folks in our group had cars waiting but we had to ask for the assistance of a very kind gentleman in a dark suit. Seems that all of the drivers wear dark suits, thin ties and sharp shoes, … More First day in #Paris

No worries…I won’t stop for coffee … More A Day Of New York Minutes

You usually get served more quickly and you often have small plate options not available on the full menu. Twice in … More It’s Fun to Eat at the Bar!
When I had the honor of singing the US and Canadian national anthems at Toronto’s Skydome (before Rogers amassed their billions for the naming rights) I met a woman who was to throw the first pitch. Prior to the game all of the pre game folks rehearse according to a carefully prepared and timed script. … More The Glamour of Traveling
I was driving from Western New York down to South Florida the other day when I spontaneously got off Interstate 95 (once saw a tee-shirt that said “I drove I95 and I survived”)onto I16 for Savannah Georgia. My intention was to drive in and walk around. The folks at Old Town Trolley Tours had their … More Savannah Georgia On My Mind
Started my Repeal Day off with a “Snowjito” cocktail overlooking the citi Pond ice rink at NYC’s Bryant Park. What better thing to eat while watching ice skating than tomato bisque and grilled cheese? Have a yummy Repeal Day!
