Have already contacted our Senator about getting approval to tour. I'll sit back and enjoy (while writing things down.) Also tell me what to avoid. Thanks!

    A major German newspaper reported this week that refugees are traveling back to their homelands “on vacation” and then coming back again to Germany. But experts tell The Local this isn’t really the case. A Die Welt report titled “Refugees go on holiday to where they were persecuted” has been raising eyebrows this week as people question how this could happen.

This time Barry warned that unless we do something about global warming, there will be no more National Parks! Recalling the first time he saw a moose in Yosemite,he said it changed him forever. Good argument against moose on the loose if you ask me.Anyway, I thought it might be fun to “reflect” back over the years and see how much we’ve all “changed” since that first “short” trip to the...
