Flipping Off the Intensity Switch

On my first visit into New York City I instantly fell in love. I’d always blown through JFK with the quick connection, hurriedly moving on to other destinations. This time my itinerary gave me a full day and night layover so I caught the train into the crowded canyons of Manhattan — it’s actually very simple — to experience first-hand the things that make the material life full. The entertainment, nightlife, sights,...

Whitney Plantation: A Different Kind of Tour

The Southern Plantation   A Slave Past I’ve visited plenty of plantations in the southern states.

Great, Cheap Dining in L.A.

Eating Right in Los Angeles As a lifetime Angeleno I have heard every complaint from friends – particularly New Yorkers – about Los Angeles’ great, cheap dining options. They rave about their city’s hot dogs and pizza on every corner, or the Philly cheese stake place just across the street. I suppose proximity sometimes equals delicious. I’ll admit there is more work getting into the car and dealing with L. A.’s notorious...

Mofungo and Mulligans: Golfing in Puerto Rico

  Mofungo and Mulligans: Golfing in Puerto Rico They might as well have handed me a magic wand for all I knew what to do with a golf club. My trip to the northeast region of Puerto Rico called for a golf-centered adventure hitting up all the top courses on the island. At first the talent of the other players was overwhelming as they traded handicap stats and knowledge of the pros standings back and forth. But I diligently...
