Budding Day and goodbye to the kids' school

The chaos inside my mind
Since I can remember first thinking seriously about "what to do" with my life career-wise, I've been torn.  I've felt just as enthusiastic about the experiences I've had with event-planning and the travel industry as I have studying for a Masters in Public ...

Food poisoning
Even writing this post makes me queasy.  And I didn't have the food poisoning, just Kevin and A.  But let me start with some background. I'm pretty sure I have emetophobia (an intense, irrational fear or anxiety of or pertaining to vomiting).  This isn't th...

San Patong Buffalo Market
The San Patong Buffalo Market is mentioned on the map we use often here, as an aside.  It says what km marker it's at, and that there's lots of used motorcycles, too, in case it's not a buffalo you need.  The idea that people go there to buy actual buffalo ...

Thoughts I've emailed myself & NES pics
