New Orleans 2017

How much do I love New Orleans? Enough that going twice last year only made me want to go again this year. Twice. In the summer. The first time was in June for a conference. The second was a couple of weeks ago. Third…

The Vacation

It’s been over a month since I returned from Scotland and have discovered that I am past the point of being able to blog the pictures effectively.  So here are the highlights.  

Singleton Travel

I am a single woman and I like to travel.  Nothing too exotic so far, just the usual places on everyone’s bucket list.  Because the world is big and I only have so much vacation time (and there are several places I return to…

The Lava Lake

You might know that I have been vacationing in Hawaii – the Big Island – for the past several winters.  And I plan to continue doing so until I run out of miles, points, and money.  With each trip, I stay on the Kona…

I was in Wyoming for a conference last week.  Why would we have  a conference in Wyoming?  Because two years ago, the people from Wyoming offered, and I sorta shouted, “I’ve never been to Wyoming!  I would love to go there!”  And the rest…

Boston and the Freedom Trail

I arrived on Friday, in the last hours of the manhunt for Suspect #2.  Kristin picked me up at the airport and we spent some time with her parents before heading up to her home in New Hampshire.  Saturday, as Boston tried to return…
