Monsters at Borrego Springs

It's Maple Sugar Time!

If you've never been to Vermont, this is THE time to go.

The maple sap starts running as soon as the days are warm and the nights are still below freezing.  It's a wondrous experience as you smell the wood smoke spilling from the sugar houses. 

There's a short tour of the sugarbush, a stand of maples where the farm collects its sap.  The sap is collected in buckets. The sap is brought back to the sugarhouse where it is boiled down in large wood-fired…

Enter A Real Time Machine - The Newseum in Washington D.C.



I stepped out of my hotel and into a time machine.

 

Transported back, not in the typical resurrected town like Williamsburg, Va. or quaint seaport village like Mystic, Ct., but truly back where I remembered with emotions raw enough to bring tears to my eyes. I cried tears of…

On the path to enlightenment, I might wind up in Woodstock, New York.  The town which lent its name to the famous rock music festival, "An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music" in 1969 is home to old hippies, and surprisingly, an increasing number of Buddhists.

Philly Cheese Steak Is No Mistake

The line on South Street wrapped around the corner. Once inside the chrome facade it continued to snake around in Disney-ride fashion. Each person mumbling to themselves as they tried to memorize their order. The line moved along one timid customer at a time. Each one blurting out their selection, as if on the soup-nazi episode of Seinfeld. “One, provolone, mushroom with" (The 'with' referring to onions). 

The line bumped forward. This placed reeked with the essence of grilled beef. …
