Our June 2014 Visit to Hilton Head, Baseball Are Us – Part I

June 16th, 2014 · No Comments · baseball, travel

We have been trying to visit Ellen’s parents every three to four months. When we used to visit them when our kids were younger, we would generally drive. When the kids left the house, we tended to fly (to Savannah, where Ellen’s parents would pick us up). Now we have returned to driving there, however […]

We Are Cornhole

May 5th, 2014 · No Comments · baseball, travel

Ellen and I try to visit Ellen’s parents in Hilton Head on a regular basis. They are really wonderful people, I am lucky to know them, and they are fun to be with (and visiting Hilton Head even if one does not play golf is pretty good also). Lately we have switched back to driving […]

My First Facebook Video

June 11th, 2013 · No Comments · Entertainment, family, movies, travel

In late 2011, Ellen and I were talking about what we might do for New Year’s, to be honest not my greatest time of year. I am not particularly a social person, or at least a party social person. Richard Cohen, a Washington Post columnist who used to write a humor column and now attempts […]

My Wild and Crazy Week

June 8th, 2012 · 1 Comment · afcea, books, life, travel, washington nationals

Once a year, Ellen goes to New York for a book festival for almost a week, like this last week typically leaving Sunday morning and returning Thursday evening. I will note in passing that when Ellen goes to New York, she takes the bus; when I go, I take the train. One wonders what conclusions […]

Today I Rode the Bus All By Myself

January 26th, 2012 · No Comments · travel

So yesterday among other things I proved (once again) that I know literally nothing about cars. As I was driving back from a customer meeting the alternator/battery light came on in my car. After a few moments I realized that steering had become more difficult, though possible. I called the place I take my car […]

I Once Was Young And Now …

November 12th, 2011 · No Comments · history, joke, life, travel

On weekends I generally try and get things done that I do not get to during the week, both at work and in my on-line classes I teach. However, almost always I am able to avoid accomplishing too much by wandering over to youtube and getting side-tracked in watching video’s. While I am wasting time […]

In 2009, our family went to China to see a solar eclipse. This was the second solar eclipse we had gone to, the first being in Turkey in 2006, but this time we also took our daughters, Miriam and Tamar with us. In Wuhan, where we watched the eclipse we were joined by an American […]

B&B Multiculturalism in Harpers Ferry

February 26th, 2011 · No Comments · international, travel

February 15th was my 30th anniversary, which I will likely comment on in a separate post. Ellen and I decided that we would do our 30th anniversary ‘stuff’ later this year. Not everyone would understand the following reference but this is not dissimilar to how many American Jewish families who don’t like the time of […]

We took the tour along with a number of other visitors, including […]
