Wild and Unusual Foods in Southern Mexico

There’s not a lot of countries that allow unfettered travel for Americans at this time of writing, but our dear neighbor down south, Mexico, has kept their puertos open for leisure travel as hassle free as possible throughout this entire pandemic.

Favorite Travel Apps and Websites

Travel has changed in the last decade as guidebooks and maps have disappeared and apps have proliferated. Apps can help you to book hotels, find the best places to visit, share your trip with others, and broadcast your adventures to the world. Besides a passport (on international trips), your phone is the single most important item you need to bring on your trip...

In the Hall of the Tiger King

It all started with a last minute party invitation. My friend Deb was hosting a Tiger King themed get-together for her birthday party. The reality show was at the height of its popularity and party goers were asked to dress like a character from the show. Hmmmm…..what to wear?

It’s a little history mixed with a scavenger hunt with some mystery and horror thrown in for good luck. This post is a work in progress, but will contain pictures of some of my more famous finds with locations...

How to Smarten up Your Dumb House

TURNING YOUR HOME INTO YOUR BEST FRIEND “Alexa, play The Matrix movie, turn on my fireplace and put bedroom fan at 30%.”  I’m spoiled. Alexa is my virtual assistant (read digital sweat shop worker) and between her and my other “robots”, almost everything in my house is turned on, off or moderated by my voice. If you’re new to smart homes, smart water or smart...

My Auditions, Movie Roles, and Other Random Videos

This post is just a place holder to put various movie clips that don’t really fit my Youtube channel. If you’re looking for my travel videos, you can find them here. Otherwise, here’s some random stuff that I’ve done over the last few years. I had a small part in the VH-1 Movie- Hammer-“Too Legit Too Quit”. I loved being part of a...
