#Traveltips
 Here is some good advice if you are planning a cruise.  So far we have managed to avoid all extra charges except for a couple of well thought out and planned excursions; we don't even get the drink packages.  Call us cheap, but we still have a blast.  
Whether it's your first time sailing or you're a veteran of the seas, cruises can be a bit tricky to figure out. After all, the biggest ships are like floating cities, filled with restaurants, bars, shows, spas, and other perks to enjoy on your journ...

The fight that started Keith Davis on a path to a new life began when he was buying marijuana. It was early afternoon on Aug. 8. As he tells it, he was in at his usual hangout in North Central Philadelphia, in front of an abandoned church at 18th and Ridge. He was taking too long mulling over his purchase, and another man got impatient and told him to go buy his stuff somewhere else.

In a series of photographs taken between 1910 and 1920, Jessie Tarbox Beals documented the parties and get-togethers of bohemian Greenwich Village. Beals also took posed portraits of denizens of the Village, some of which she sold as postcards to curiosity-seekers interested in seeing how the famously "liberated" men and women of...

In the modern-era, Scandinavian countries have become known for their sometimes awkward embrace of migrants from the Arab and Muslim world. But the history behind that relationship goes back far further than you might expect.

Less than one per cent of Sweden’s household waste ends up in a rubbish dump. The rest is recycled in different ways.

Planet 'reared' by four parent stars.

Growing up as a planet with more than one parent star has its challenges. Though the planets in our solar system circle just one star -- our sun -- other more distant planets, called exoplanets, can be reared in families with two or more stars. Researchers wanting to know more about the complex influences of multiple stars on planets have come up with two new case studies: a planet found to have three parents, and another with four: http://buff.ly/1FbakbA

Retired but still learning and just enjoying each day as it comes.
Introduction
Although I have a degree in mathematics as a high school teacher, i find other subjects interesting as well.  I am particularly fascinated with astronomy but also enjoy reading about travel, photography and gardening. We are fortunate to live near the beach, however I am more interested in the local history and archaeology of  the area. 
Do not feel obligated to follow me if I follow you, however I will be flattered if you do follow.
