To Everything There is a Season

This weeks Song-ography theme is Turn, Turn, Turn. I always loved the song as recorded by The Byrds. Until today I did not realize it was “written” by Pete Seeger, using the words from Ecclesiates 3:18. In the  60s these words were very appropriate with all that was going in the US and Vietnam during … [Read more…]

Oh the Places I’ve Been

I love to travel. When I was young, my parents and I traveled quite a bit. Not to many exotic locations, but I feel quite fortunate to have been able to travel as much as we did on summer vacations.   We traveled mostly in the continental US as we camped with a trailer. My … [Read more…]

When we lived in Orlando,we visited Disney pretty much … [Read more…]

I am OVER the cold and dreary weather. Spring arrived last week, and I think we have had 2 semi warm and sunny days. Yellow always makes me think of the sun, and the sun makes me feel warm! Daffodils totally signify the arrival of spring. Ours are just peeping out from the soil. Visit … [Read more…]

Sundays in My City – People and Pets of Philly

I didn’t have much time for new adventures this week, with work and such.Even though spring has arrived according to the calendar, for the most part, the thermometer is not in agreement.
