What’s the best hotel in Tallahassee?

Our Little English Guesthouse Bed and Breakfast is in the top 10% of hotels worldwide! Tripadvisor just notified us that, according to their stats, we are one of the best. We are chuffed to bits to say the least! Of all the hotels and all the real bed and breakfasts...

Click here for more Meghan and Harry – LOL

I watched the Oprah interview live on Sunday night. Then I read the scoop for the Monday night live- airing in Britain. On Tuesday I read the fallout. On Wednesday a breakfast TV anchor had quit over it. On Thursday a formal complaint had been filed. By Friday, I...

Who believes in solar / wind power?

Who believes in solar / wind power?

I do! I do! One would imagine being born and raised in London, we'd be so used to it being overcast and rainy that we would never hang clean washing on the line to dry and expect it to actually dry. But we did hang it out and it did dry (well, most of the time). We...

..Are we the only state in the US without snow?

..Are we the only state in the US without snow?

Being married to a meteorologist- wannabe (sorry, Thom, but it's true), I've grown used to receiving a weather forecast before a "Good morning". Even before a "Happy birthday" or a "Merry Christmas", there's a general announcement of the temperature in Tallahassee,...

…next month, Oprah!

…next month, Oprah!

It's official, Meghan and Prince Harry will not return as working members of the Royal Family. (Well, one can't really do that from California, in all honesty.) So this doesn't come as a huge surprise to those of us who follow this family (I'm assuming that means you,...

Are you being smart and booking direct?

Are you being smart and booking direct?

You may not know this, but if you book a hotel or B&B accommodation via an online travel agent, like Booking or Hotels dot com, Expedia etc, they charge the lodging establishment a hefty commission. In these difficult times for local (non-franchise) legal...

Where’s the best place to stay in Tallahassee?

Last winter, I crossed pathways with a couple in a local lunchtime eaterie, close to the I-10, which is around the corner from the Little English Guesthouse. They had pulled off to grab lunch and were on their way South, returning to Tallahassee in a fortnight. I got...

Come sit awhile and sail away your troubles…

Come sit awhile and sail away your troubles…

It's been a scorcher of a summer! Triple-digit temperatures, stifling humidity, afternoon thunderstorms that last into the night added to all the other troubles we've had this summer. It just seemed like the heat (the political, emotional, financial and atmospheric...

Who should I vote for? Am I being bossy?

Who should I vote for? Am I being bossy?

There's less than a fortnight to go in the strangest election season ever. It's been a bit nasty, tempers have flared, in places where one might be surprised to hear such a heated argument. (A debate is not supposed to be an argument). And both Democrats and...

This takes matchy-matchy to a whole new level..

Have you remodeled a bathroom or powder room recently? Around here, we seem to be constantly updating and refreshing things. After all, no-one wants to feel like they're living in, or visiting, Grandma's house, stuck in the the 1970's (name your decade here!). No...

Where should we stay in Tallahassee?

Where should we stay in Tallahassee?

My heart went out to Mary who was leaving California and traveling solo to central Florida. California was on fire, there were protests and some riots going on around the country, talk of the upcoming election being taken over by Russian interference, (or Chinese), or...

This will make you feel better after the funeral…

It's a sad but true fact, we must all pay taxes and die. No one escapes. The rich, the poor, the kind, the miserable ..we all must pay taxes and die. So after you've buried your loved one, wouldn't it be nice to return "home" at the end of the day to a place that is...

Fancy a little sunset watching tonight?

On a quiet evening, we love to run down to St. Mark's National Wildlife Refuge to watch the sunset by the lighthouse. We often recommend it to our guests who fancy a little drive through the forest (on a paved highway!) and they always come back glad they made the...

Who doesn’t love a Royal wedding?

Princess Beatrice got married today at a little chapel in Windsor. She married Count Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. It was a small, intimate affair with just the family in attendance. She wore the same tiara Queen Elizabeth wore when she married Prince Phillip, which I...

If you could say “Take me back” …

If you had all the time and money in the world, what would be your travel agenda? But lets not forget to include the word "pandemic". Because the entire world was turned upside down in early 2020 and it became no longer a matter of not having enough time, or enough...

Arise, ye knight!

This is in our London Room, a lovely piece of art by Leighton and a favorite of honeymooners. But we're not worried about art thieves staying here just to perform an art heist, it's a print. (Just sayin' in case the darker side of you might come out LOL). Obviously I...

In heaven there are beloved dogs, and tea, lots of tea..

Thom and I have never been able to agree on the whereabouts of our beloved Sadie, who died 5 years ago. I am convinced that she is in heaven, with Jesus, waiting for me. Not doggie heaven, or over the rainbow bridge, but actual heaven. Thom tells me that is...
