Camera Down, Camera Down… What’s Next?

Just before our pilgrimage to Ireland in April 2016, I sent out a search party and performed in-depth research on compact point-and-shoot digital cameras.

What Constitutes a Successful Fishing Trip?

Everything that I do best happens after 2pm, so when I asked Tony, "what time are we leaving for the dock?" And his reply was "we leave at 6:15am." I must have winced because his response to whatever gesture my face pulled was, "you said you wanted to go deep sea fishing? Then this is... Continue Reading →

What do Beaches, Warm Weather and Me, Have in Common?

Mexico... Honestly, its all my wife's fault that I'm even looking at, considering and possibly planning another trip to Mexico. In a past life I have travelled twice to Mexico; Mazatlan and Los Cabos.
