Are You Running On Empty?

During the summer, there are few things I enjoy more than listening to live music. And there are few places I’d rather enjoy it than Fenway Park in Boston. And there are few musicians I’d rather see than Jackson Browne and James Taylor. And so when tickets went on sale this past February for those two, in that place, my wife Linda and I were all over it. Yesterday, after six months of waiting, the day had finally arrived. It […] Click to read more…

 

Are You White House Bound?

By any chance, have you been following the upcoming U.S. presidential race? (Note to non-Americans, please keep your laughing to a minimum; it rattles the candidates.)

Rob had asked me to pick a restaurant downtown and I […] Click to read more…

 

Good Enough Is Good Enough

Have you been to Charleston, South Carolina? My wife Linda and I were there just last week, in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary (I know, I don’t know how she’s lasted this long either). It’s a beautiful place and we had a terrific time eating, drinking, biking, strolling, kayaking, beaching and more. We even took one of those 90-minute horse-drawn carriage tours where they tell you interesting local facts, such as, “The salamander is the official state amphibian” and, […] Click to read more…
