The Final Stranded in Venice Vacation (Part 9)

Thursday, April 22 A mosquito bothered our sleep some. Wake up call is 3:30, we check out at 4:30 and walk back along the canal to the left and cross a bridge. To the left is the bus lot. At 4:40 an orange Airporto bus is there (early?) and as we walk up to it, […]

Stranded in Venice, Italy Part 8

Coming back to Venezia/St. Lucia, I felt as if we were coming home. We didn’t expect to be gone so long. It was near 6pm. As we walked into our hotel the desk person stopped us, “Madame, 222?” They know us by our room number. “If you wouldn’t mind, we would like to put you […]

Sturgis Bike Rally in SD

The 69th Annual Sturgis Rally is coming up on August 3rd through the 9th. This isn’t the beach, but it is something to go to. I heard that the people in Deadwood, SD like the bike rally people better than the Corvette people. The bikers are more polite, cleaner and better behaved. If you are […]

Swimming Holes, Traveling, and Feasting

A friend of mine sent me an interesting site the other day. It is a list of all the ‘swimming holes’ and hot springs in the US and Canada. I know, it’s not the beach, but when you want to go somewhere in nature, and the beach is too far away, sometimes this is just […]

So I did some research and found that this whole area (the Ohio River Valley) is considered Zone 6 for growing, and there are many tropical looking plants for our area. Well, […]

Bob Marley – No Woman No Cry Video

Here’s a little Bob Marley to make your day better. I love this version of “No Woman No Cry.” It’s slowed down a bit, and it just has a groove that you can’t beat. Since they can’t use Bob Marley’s music in the movie No Woman No Cry about the book of the same title […]

Jamaican Food Recipe, Chicken Rundown

I love Jamaican food. I think I’ve mentioned that before, but I really do. To me, the spicier the better, which is why I love jerk so much. My wife is not so much into the spicy food as I am, but she does love good jerk chicken. When I buy my ethnic ingredients, I […]

Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee is the Best in the World. The Best Sites for Finding Jamaican Blue

I found this article about coffee and decided to post it, because it talks about my two loves, coffee, and Jamaica. The original article from CoffeePages didn’t include any links, so I put some in. I don’t understand why anyone would post an article about websites, and not include any links, but hey, I fixed […]
