Everywhere by Christine McVie— This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is actually four songs by Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac. "Everywhere" was a good choice, but I had to share a couple more. I've had "crushes" on both Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie over the years. These songs were a memorable part of my life's journey. Hope you enjoy.

The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals

Our latest "escape" watch was The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals on Netflix. In each episode, they travel to three vacation rental spots. One is a budget rental, one a luxury rental, and one an "unusual" rental. It was a fun watch.
Inside Titanic

Explore the RMS Titanic from the Inside

This is the first in a new series of posts to share things I come across that are, in the vernacular of my Boston youth, "wicked cool". Found a great video that does a complete 3D tour of how the RMS Titanic was built. It definitely had me saying "wicked cool."

How You Make A Man

This Friday's song is "How You Make a Man" by Craig Morgan. I have been taking some time to reflect over the long Thanksgiving weekend. As I think about what I am most grateful for in my life today, I realize how some of the hardest and most painful experiences in my life helped to shape me and make all of that possible. I thought this song says it much better than I ever could.
Karen Pirie

Karen Pirie — What We Are Watching

Our latest find on BBC was Karen Pirie. Pirie is a young up-and-coming detective who is unexpectantly promoted and given responsibility for a twenty-five-year-old cold case, the murder of a young barmaid. The show is well paced with a good cast. Recommended if you like British crime drama.

Lucilla Revisited — November’s Date Night

It got pretty chilly here in Tallahassee this week. We decided that we wanted to have something "warm and hearty" for our November date night. We visited Lucillia for the first time back in August. We had a great meal and there were a lot of other dishes on the menu that caught our interest. Their big flavors and creative "comfort food" seemed like the perfect match for what we wanted.

Recommended — Crumbl Cookies

We decided to swing by Crumbl Cookies on Mahan today to check out the Pumpkin Cake, Hazelnut Sea Salt, and Apple Pie flavors. Had tastes of the first two today when we brought them home. Awesome!

There Goes My Life by Kenny Chesney

There Goes My Life — This Friday’s Song

I chose "There Goes My Life" by Kenny Chesney for this Friday's song. This has been on my playlists since it was first released in October 2003. This week my son Ryan received his "first" paycheck from his new job. I am one very proud father!

Back to the moon…

This morning, NASA launched a rocket to the moon for the first time in fifty years. If you were not able to watch the launch, take a minute to watch. If it doesn't fill you with awe and pride, I would be surprised. Congratulations to the entire team at NASA and all of their commercial partners on a successful first launch of this exciting next step to enable human exploration of the moon and Mars. Remember... Always look up!
