We smell like….. nothing! Goal: Odor free bed and breakfast

Do you believe in the kindness of strangers?

Do you believe in the kindness of strangers?

Queen Elizabeth II died last week. I've been rather glued to the TV to grieve with my fellow countrymen from afar. It is quite a monumental event, even for those of us who left Britain, set up home and family in a new country, and accepted new citizenship. Over the...

Want to give a reason to stay at a real bed and breakfast?

Thom and I took a quick trip to Central Florida to celebrate several things we'd not had time to celebrate these last few crazy Covid years. We went to a show, ate fabulous food and stayed at a hotel (because there were no real bed and breakfasts for miles around). I...

Queen consort? Princess Consort? I really don’t care, do you?

Who does pomp and ceremony the best?

Well the British, of course! Today's first day celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee has kept some of us (well, maybe just me!) glued to the screen to see all the happenings around the country. The trooping of the color is one of the finest examples of British...
