  1. The Charente from the Ramparts

    Angouleme: Balcony of the Southwest, Part Two

    $0.00

    Angouleme and the towns and countryside around it along the Charente River provide much to do and see. My approach has always been to investigate things in depth rather than trying to see every site available. Also meeting and talking to the locals gives a better feel for the locale. Once again quality is better than quantity.

They had their start in Houston in 1967 with the opening of The Brisket House in Houston.

  8. Gingko Tree Cave Hill (Photo by Mike Miller)

    On Patrol looking for trees…

    $0.00

    In the heart of Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville is one of the largest Gingko trees in the state of Kentucky. On a recent visit, we wandered into its presence. All the leaves were a bright yellow. It was 2:00 in the afternoon on November 8th so the light was hitting the tree at a sharp angle. The reflections off the surface of these usual shaped leaves filtered throughout the giant tree. This tree is the volume of a two-story house with about 3000 square feet. I was told that all Gingko trees shed their leaves on the same day. The gingko is a living fossil dating back 270 million years. The word Gingko is derived from the Japanese word ginkyo meaning “silver apricot”. The realization that this tree was 150 years old reminds us to think about all the history it had witnessed and that we are standing in a sacred place.

  14. Firebird Cafe

    Firebird Café: Essex Junction, VT

    $0.00

    After leaving Montpelier we decided to start looking for a place to have lunch as we approached Burlington. We exited just before Burlington, but couldn’t find any restaurants close to I-89. Since we had our Garmin GPS to get back on track, we continued about five miles down the road until we came to Essex Junction and saw the Firebird Café on the left-hand side. Since this was obviously a local place and not a fast-food chain, we decided to stop and check it out.

  19. JORDAN - Ahlan wa sah lan ("Welcome")

    JORDAN - Ahlan wa sah lan ("Welcome")

    $0.00

    Jordan is one of the most culturally rich and magnificent places to visit in the entire world.  The breadth of civilization and depth of history is overwhelming: from the Nabateans to the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Umayyads to the Ottomans, the history truly humbles one's knowledge of ancient cultures and traditions.  The visitor immediately recognizes the graciousness of the people, who represent a crossroads of cultures: there is a mixture of Palestinian, Chechen, Turkmen, Circassian, and Druze.  The one word that best describes this country is tolerance.... and a celebration of cultural diversity.  This is reflected in their artwork and cuisine.

    Sometimes first impressions are misleading. Such was the case with our visit to First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach. This is a huge campground with direct beach access, and lots of amenities to please everyone. However, the check-in process was so confounding that we nearly gave up.

    Munich – City of Lifestyle

    $0.00

    Munich is the largest city in the Bavarian state of Germany.  It ranks as the third largest city followed by Berlin and Hamburg.    Of all the cities in Germany, I find Munich to be the most “tour-friendly” since I can just walk or bicycle myself around town.  Street maps are an easy read though always on a first visit to any international destination, I enjoy taking the “hop on hop off” bus tour to get a true overview of the city and mark those destinations that I wish to return to explore further.

I meant Inga, the general manager the day I visited. The front has dramatic vines growing right above the sign telling me where I was, Orphan. Inside is a touch of industrial, a pea colored green stone flooring, and rust accents everywhere. There are modern pieces mixed with antiques.
