Day 1 

March 20, 2020

Today I’m reviewing my efforts to survive a “stay in place” order.

All things considered I’m in pretty good shape. If it weren’t for Louise, I would probably have a case of diet ginger ale and some Saltine crackers. Instead I have a full larder and b...

We need Rocky and Bullwinkle . . .

Why do we need them? Because in the White House we now have Fearless Leader (Donald Trump) and his minions, Boris Badenov (Rudi Giuliani) and Natasha Fatale (Kellyanne Conway). The only one Fearless Leader answers to is Mr. Big (Vlad...

The results are in and it now seems to be a two man race: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Interesting. head to head, I have to give the nod to Biden.

Joe Biden, who was dead, but not buried, came alive on Super Tuesday. His campaign was resurrected and he once more beca...

I don’t know if we’re headed for a pandemic or not. I believe the health officials when they warn us of the danger of the Coronavirus. They should know what they’re talking about. They certainly know a lot more about it than Mike Pence, who has just been placed in char...

I didn’t vote for Trump, but I hoped that he would become at least a little presidential. He did and he didn’t. I knew from the start that he was not and never would be a politician. That’s why so many people voted for him. They didn’t want another politician and that’...

Italian Food

I’ve had a little debate with my editor (hi Bryan!) about pizza in Italy versus pizza here in the states. I like pizza as much as the next guy, but the difference is enormous. While I understand that there are different types of pizza, there are some basi...

Time to get from Rome to Citicavecchia and catch up with our ship, the Royal Clipper. The Royal Clipper is the largest square-rigged sailing ship in the world, and I have to say, it is impressive. That’s a picture of it to the left.

Getting on board is fairly easy, as...

I should start by saying that I’m not Catholic, nor am I at all religious. I would also tell you that its impossible to visit the Vatican and not be a bit overwhelmed at what religion can do.

A bus drops Louise and me off across the river Tiber from the Vatican. As we...

Ah, Rome!

I’ve traveled enough that I’m not usually impressed by a new country or a new city, but dammit, this is Rome. The city of Ben-Hur, Spartacus, Julius Caesar, and even Russell Crowe as the Gladiator. I know a lot of Roman history, and I’m about to see some of...
