Birthday Week
As my own children and the children I’ve taught know, I
pride myself on knowing EVERYTHING. There are no secrets kept from me because
of my superior ability to put two and two together and smell rats in the least
obvious places. So I am considering it the c...

Home Time
With just one full day in Singapore, we decided to focus our
attention on the Gardens by the Bay. The MRT transit system is just like the London Underground
but cleaner and quieter. The automated trains (no drivers), run on a continuous
loop between station...

A rose by any other name
We spent our last full morning in London doing more walking.
Our average everyday has been well over 15K steps and today was no exception.
Regent Park is only a stones’ throw from Camden and provides a picturesque

Belfast to Ballycastle
I was right to worry about the traffic noise last night. Combined with

In Dublin's fair city
I’m not sure about Dublin. We’ve just come from the pleasantest
(sp) place on Earth and it’s been raining since we got here so that makes it
hard to be objective. I love the Irish accent- everything sounds like a song. I
