Well, yesterday I went over 1,000,000 miles on Delta alone. I travel way too much!
Most recently, I spent a week at Pensacola Beach visiting mother and looking at property. I noticed crews working on the beach, and then it hit me: They are cleaning up buried oil from the Gulf oil spill. I was saddened to hear from a… Continue reading
Today we went walking along the beach and plopped our beach chairs surf side to enjoy a moment of sunshine and the cool ocean breeze. When I sat down, I noticed I had a glob of tar near the heal of my foot. And since I had forgotten to wear my “official beach shoes,” I was going to have a… Continue reading
I’d vote for her! Shoot, I’d campaign for her! She’s attractive and charming. She’s witty and articulate. She speaks core American values. She does her homework.

I had no idea that the grandson of the renowned late Jacque Cousteau lives just a few miles up the road in Santa Monica, California. As a child I loved watching his grandfather’s expeditions. This interview is so depressing.
