Dancing With Grandmom in the Shadow of Thomas Jefferson at The Omni Homestead

The reservation wasn’t for a few more minutes. I was early as usual and no one else from my dinner party was yet there. Leaning against the ivory tower of the maitre d stand, I listened to Kendall talk about his golf game. The executive chef “beat him up and […]

The Mighty Pen: Hard Rock Riviera Maya Mexico

The Best Worst Time For A Mancation

Kids CDs still arrive at my door, a couple each week. It’s a decidedly slower pace than in my kindie writing heyday but still a significant number when you consider I haven’t properly reviewed an album in years. Right now, there’s a new one sitting atop of a stack of […]
