What a long, strange trip it’s been. The first time I met Joe Clark was at the retirement party of Scott Harris.  Harris was an Orlando news-icon who, shortly after his “retirement”, died of cancer. I met Joe and was instantly drawn in.  We talked briefly…

I really don’t know when it all happened. There was a time, not that long ago, where my children would be mildly interested in sports and sport news, but would rather play with toys. Suddenly, my oldest, who is now 11 and in the 6th grade, has become…
I really don’t know when it all happened. There was a time, not that long ago, where my children would be mildly interested in sports and sport news, but would rather play with toys. Suddenly, my oldest, who is now 11 and in the 6th grade, has become sports obsessed.  It’s kind of awesome, and…

Behind the Scenes at Kennedy Space Center

The perks of my job! Many days I sit inside an office, but once-in-awhile, I get to do really cool stuff. When I worked in news, I was lucky enough to attend many shuttle launches out at Kennedy Space Center.  It’s been awhile since the shuttle program…
Touring Kennedy Space Center and visiting spots previously off-limits like the Astronaut Beach House.

My favorite place to eat at Walt Disney World has gotten even better. It’s a small, tucked-away spot that most people glance over, but it’s a hidden gem of delicious goodness. I’m talking about Kona Island at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.  To the untrained eye, it looks like a stand to get coffee and pastries.  And…

Inside the new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Today I got to do something I’ve been wanting to do for YEARS….go inside the brand new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.  I have been in Orlando for 15 years now – and it seems like it’s taken that long to get to this point! And I have to say,…
