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...

Its the Fourth of July and I’m supposed to be in England. At the last minute a business situation came up that prevented me from going, but Louise went and is, at this very moment, renewing her Englishness. I’m missing it because there are very few things in life more...

Louise and I leave for two weeks in Italy today. No, not today; it’s actually next week, but I thought it must be today because of all the running around, the gathering of clothes, the waiting suitcases, and the panicked look in her eye that says she knows we’re missin...

The move back north is now complete, and we are safely ensconced in our home on Cape Cod.   The lawn has been cleaned up. The pool is being opened today. The cherry trees are just beginning to bloom, and everything is starting to feel fresh and new.

And then I op...

They finally did it. They’ve gone to far, and I can no longer keep silent. This time I blame it on the liberals and the political correctness dweebs.

The Boy Scouts are no more. They are now just the Scouts.

Girls can now join the Boy Scouts. Oh, excuse me—the Scouts...

How to Make a Good Decision

All of us have to make decisions all the time. Sometimes we make good ones and sometimes … well … not so good. Throughout my life I have made tens of thousands of decisions, and not all of them were the right ones. The wrong decisions I now...

Its cold, windy, and rainy today, and I’m going to want something hearty for dinner. A quick check of the freezer offers several options: filet mignon, shrimp, goat meat, pork loin, and … wait a minute … are those oxtails? Decision made. Now I have to decide how to coo...
