  1. Zika – Travel Tips

    Zika – Travel Tips

    $0.00

    How we love our travel – all of us have heard and are aware of the devastating health effects of the Zika virus – especially for women who have become infected while pregnant.  While reviewing the recent media coverage – it finally has hit our Miami shores – it just dawned on me how important to tell my grown children to be very careful – for the spread, though slow, and authorities continue to try to quell any alarm or concern for Americans, the fact is that it has reached US soil and I quickly sent an email to my grown children to be forewarned when they travel not only international but also within the US.  One can never be too careful!

    $0.00

    The children are grown and are now parents of their own children. Yes, grandparenting is a joy! But long distances, and complex work and study schedules, often hinder family get-togethers and staying in close contact. Unless we are lucky enough to see the grandchildren on a weekly basis, each reunion is almost like meeting them for the first time.

    Volunteer for an Adventure!

    $0.00

    If you want to experience a life-changing adventure, I highly recommend you combine travel with volunteerism! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done! I’ve traveled to many beautiful, historic, and tourist friendly places, but volunteering gave me a deeper, richer, and more rewarding experience. It’s a great way to be completely immersed in a new culture, visit places you’ve never have been before, give yourself a new perspective on your life back at home, and have the added feel-good bonus of feeding your soul while helping those in need.

    A wonderful place to visit any time of year is Charleston, South Carolina. History, architecture, great food, water elements and charm all come to mind when describing this area.

The first residential property did not make an appearance here until 1996. Since then it has become a planned community with 8 parks, 25 miles of trails, 23 miles of rivers, golf courses, tennis clubs, shops and restaurants. Bingo, now you get two great areas for the price of one!

    Japanese Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world,” is a genre of art that flourished in Japan from the 17th through 19th centuries.

They heavily influenced the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists of France and America, with their expressive curves, bold use of colors, and liberal designs.  Ukiyo-e subjects included: female beauties, kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, historic scenes, folk tales, travel scenes and landscapes, flora and fauna, and erotic.

  24. A Historic 110 Year-Old, New York City Italian-American Bakery Reopens in the New Jersey Suburbs

    A Historic 110 Year-Old, New York City Italian-American Bakery Reopens in the New Jersey Suburbs

    $0.00

    On my way home from the Chiropractor, two towns away in in Clifton, NJ, I made a detour to visit Allwood Bakery for some treats for my family. Allwood has been a fixture in Clifton for over forty years. Unfortunately, it was just after 6 pm, and they were already closed.  At the same time, however, I noticed that literally next door was a new bakery-café that I had never seen before.  It was still opened and quite busy (even though they too were supposed to close at 6 pm).  I stopped in and discovered they had authentic baba-rums, cannolis, Napolians, Pignoli tarts, Cassatine Siciliane, mini and full-size cheese cakes, and other Italian classic pastries that were not among the more “contemporary” and “American” baked goods that are Allwood’s specialties.
