Rest in peace, George, my friend

Rest in peace, George, my friend

A few months ago we buried a dear friend, George. Gone, after 32 years of friendship. Much of that time was spent debating (some would call it arguing) politics, climate change, swapping travel tips and airline seats. We'd find flight bargains on the internet and...

Florida weather –  too funny – and absolutely true.

Florida weather – too funny – and absolutely true.

Much as we all love to complain about the weather, or as some call it, "just talking about" the weather, these facts speak for themselves. (Courtesy of Wink TV in Southwest Florida). It's almost like living in London. Many of our guests are parents of FSU students....

Did you know today is National Florida Day?

Did you know today is National Florida Day?

Who knew? Not I. Today, January 25th, is National Florida Day where we celebrate all things Florida. I'm not sure what that would be. But I can think of several things for which I'm grateful. Living in Florida brings hurricanes, tornadoes, 100% humidity, mosquitos,...

Prince Andrew, Jeffrey Epstein and the Queen of England

Prince Andrew, Jeffrey Epstein and the Queen of England

What a disaster. Prince Andrew, 9th in line to the throne (which means 8 of his blood relatives would need to die, or abdicate, before he could be crowned king), has been stripped of his titles. No more His Royal Highness, no more military titles or honors. He's a...

It’s a brand New Year – or it can be anyway.

It’s a brand New Year – or it can be anyway.

Happy New Year to you and yours! I'm glad that 2021 is in the rear view mirror, are you? For many the year of the pandemic, 2020, was quite dreadful, only to find 2021 be even worse, for a myriad of reasons. It's made many of us realize that we should count our...

We think you’ll love our Tallahassee bed and breakfast !

We think you’ll love our Tallahassee bed and breakfast !

It's been an unusual year (didn't we say that in 2020?) for this Tallahassee bed and breakfast. We are grateful to be still in business, about to enter our 19th year, having seen so many small businesses (and large global corporations) close their doors in the last 18...

Places to see in Tallahassee – from atop the St. Marks Lighthouse

Places to see in Tallahassee – from atop the St. Marks Lighthouse

What's not to love about this dignified, 80 ft high edifice gracing the skyline over the Apalachee Bay? It's the 2nd oldest light station in Florida, originally built in 1830, with a giant reflector lens at the top. It would be a rather picturesque place to get...

Thank you, Veterans! Lest we forget their sacrifice for you and for me

Thank you, Veterans! Lest we forget their sacrifice for you and for me

Lest we forget! So easy to forget unless we are intentional about it. It's also easy to forget the details of why it's important. Celebration of the end of World War 1 in 1918 soon turned to sober remembrance of all who were lost and the freedom for which they fought....

Greek Food Festival – fun things to do in Tallahassee

Greek Food Festival – fun things to do in Tallahassee

Spanakopita, anyone? Dolmades? Gyros, Moussaka or Baklava? What's it all about, you ask. It's the Tallahassee Greek Food Festival - and they're back to pre-Covid fun! An annual event in Tallahassee, Thom and I have enjoyed this for almost 2 decades.  Scheduled for...

How do you get off the London Underground? Dancers know …

I have always loved dance. Real dancing, ballet, ballroom dancing, interpretative dancing - not the meaningless gyrations that passes as dance today, but I digress...  Jordan Matter captures not just the movement but the emotion, the passion and draws us into his...

Harry and Meghan- most influential people in the world?

Harry and Meghan- most influential people in the world?

Harry and Meghan or Meghan and Harry – they’ve done it again. Had a photo of themselves published, this time on the front page of Time Magazine and everyone’s talking about them again. Some who abhor this couple say the photo is ludicrous, that a Prince and heir to...

What events must we always remember?

What events must we always remember?

Today, as we think about the evil that happened on our shores, 20 years ago, I am reminded of events we must always remember. I think on these things because I am all too aware that some have already forgotten, or perhaps just got complacent in thinking about it. The...

Can you guess why this girl jumps for joy?

Can you guess why this girl jumps for joy?

Could it be she's just pleased to get out of the London cab and rip off her Covid19 facemask?  Or could it be she's just deliriously joyful at being in London and not in Tallahassee, Inferno Florida? Let's be honest, August in Tallahassee is not the most pleasant...

Wouldn’t you like to recharge your awesomeness, here?

Wouldn’t you like to recharge your awesomeness, here?

As another hot August day turns into a hot August night (cue Neil Diamond here, for those of us old enough to remember him), we took a stroll outside to admire Thom's handiwork. Our little English garden, despite the searing triple digit heat index these days still...
