Oh my, oh my! I can always count on Planet Comicon in Kansas City to be filled with adventure, and this year was no exception. February 16-18 Bartle Hall filled with geeks of all kinds. I’m not wasting a lot of space here on the impressive celebrity lineup, the phenomenal cosplayers (so many great cosplays!), […]

I learned a lot on that lake growing up. My cousin taught me what firecrackers in an old metal coffee can sounded like; Dad taught me how to tell a really good scary story; and my Uncles showed me that sometimes it is better just to jump on in…even if the water is freezing.

Okay, so maybe this is a bit extreme, but in addition to the NE Aquarium, Freedom Trail, Salem, Fenway, and Sam Adams Brewery I had to tell you about the food (and beer). One of the great experiences of any vacation is trying out the local cuisine. Coming from a landlocked state, I jump at […]

Catch part one, part two, and part three too. My best friend received tickets to see the Red Sox play in Fenway along with dinner at Strega for her birthday gift (okay, so maybe it was a bit of a gift to myself too). The day of the game dawned cold and rainy. Now when I […]

You can catch up with part one and part two, if you missed them. During our stay, we took a day trip out to Salem to see the location of the infamous Salem Witch Trials. The town has more little museums, occult themed gift stores and store fronts for psychics than any place I’ve been […]

Just in case you missed it, Boston: Part One – The New England Aquarium can be read here! One of my favorite things about Boston is the history. Seriously, I loved Washington, DC. The nation’s capital contains so much of what makes the United States, but Boston is really where it all started. When politicians […]

My Boston trip doesn’t fit into one post…plus, as my best friend will attest, I may be a little camera-happy on vacations. What can I say? I want to remember stuff! For this trip, we rented a condo for the week instead of choosing a hotel. I have to say, I don’t plan on doing […]

Last weekend, I joined my family at Grand Lake for our annual long weekend at the lake. Every year we rent a house at Candlywyck Cove Resort (and a hotel room or two) and spend the weekend laughing, eating, swimming, fishing and playing dominos (and any other games we can come up with). My dad and his […]

I’m keeping this one short and sweet. I promise, there is more on my trip to Boston to come. For now, I have a couple of fun facts for you. Did you know colonial Bostonians had a horrible sense of direction and/or sucked at map reading? I know, hard for me to believe too, but […]

Today, just seemed like it needed some Ren & Stimpy, because I’m going to Boston. Don’t worry, I’m not leaving you guys without stuff to entertain you. There are some pretty sweet videos scheduled to post next week. Have I mentioned I’m going to Boston? Obviously, I’m not excited about this at all. Fenway, Fanueil Hall, […]
