Island Hopping: Dominica

Of all the islands in the Caribbean that I’ve been to, I’d have to say that Dominica (pronounced: dom-a-nee-ka) was my least favorite. Don't get me wrong, because it was still beautiful, just in a different way. The island itself is considered the, "Nature Isle of the Caribbean," because of its unspoiled nature and I imagine would be a hikers paradise.

The Town Too Tough To Die

 The Town Too Tough to DieTombstone (population: 1,380) is the historic western city of Cochise County, Arizona that was founded in 1879.  It was one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West.

Speaking Southernese

If you are new here, then you'll learn that I'm from the south. Everyone else that's been around a while already knows. Let me clarify that I'm not a native southerner, because I was actually born in the Pacific Northwest, but I have spent most of my life in Texas, even though at the age of 30, I moved to New Hampshire. I get bored easily, and now I would prefer not sticking around in one place too long. Needless to say, I have the travel bug inside me....more

What Your Blog Writing Says About You

What Your Blog Writing Says About You...We all interpret others and put them into different personality categories. You know what I mean: “She's a Type A,” “Uncle Ned is a control freak,” “Your brother is too laid back," "Gina is an asshole."There are lots of systems and tests out there used in typing people’s personalities, some more useful than others.
