  1. Sights from Yellowstone National Park

    I've been kicking around the idea of going back to Yellowstone National Park for the summer. I spent 3 months there in 2012. I'd like to go back for 1 more extended summer stay. The place is amazing. Lots of incredible sights. Tons of wildlife. Cool temperatures all summer long.

  2. Cruise ship menu

    Here are some of the dinner meals I ate recently on a 12 day New England and Canada cruise on the Cunard Queen Mary 2. I don't recall all the desserts. Some nights I got a 2nd appetizer instead of a salad. The food was well prepared. The menu was innovative although not every dish was exceptional.

  5. Southern Maryland fishing

    There are few things I'd rather do than fish. I got hooked(pun intended) many years ago. I wasn't very skilled but I somehow managed to persevere. Around 11 years old I got to fish a lake that was full of fish. They were easy to catch. Just pull a moth off of a tree, toss it in the water, wait about 30 seconds and a fat bluegill would inhale the bait. It was lots of fun and kept me entertained for hours.

    Fast forward a few decades. I've been fortunate enough to have fished in ...
