I found a photo for Throwback Thursday, and it reminded me of how just a few words can change your perception of a memory. In this picture, I see a little girl showing off a new dress. My childhood friends focused on the dirty room. I blogged:

Rev Run says that he NEEDS to travel often. True story: the day I interviewed him for this article, he was trying to convince his wife to hop on a plane to go to Miami. Our chat in the Chicago Tribune: #revrun   #hgtv

"Raising Hope" star Lucas Neff will be heard voicing Arlo in the animated Pixar film "The Good Dinosaur" (slated for release next year). But as his series comes to a close, he chats with me about some of his favorite travels, including a childhood trip to Beijing for a baseball tournament:

"Since I was unequivocally the worst player on the team, I spent the grand majority of the trip riding the bench, which broke my competitive little heart. But it was still a fairly revelatory experience. We climbed the Great Wall, went to the Forbidden City, checked out the Summer Palace and bought battle axes from desperate, sweating peddlers in Silk Alley for pennies on the dollar. Some of the boys shattered the revolving door at the hotel, and I bought a laser pointer. Ah, memories."

I have a slew of press passes from concerts and red carpet events. The event that I was thrilled to cover was the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. John Kennedy Jr. was there and, as could be expected, he was very charismatic and charming. But the celebrity I was most excited to see was…Chris Rock! He and his date were alone behind a roped off area.

Sean Astin in his new film, "Moms' Night Out." He'll always be Samwise Gamgee to me, though. :-) #seanastin   #momsnightout

Former American Idol contestant James Durbin phoned me from a RV park in New Orleans. Glamorous, right?  Maybe not, but his description made me want to visit it: "We're right next to the freeway and an old cemetery that was used in a bunch of horror movies. Each of the grave plots look like little houses. From the freeway, it looks like a maze of houses and it's really creepy." My full interview in the Chicago Tribune: #jamesdurbin #americanidol #travel #goawaywith
James Durbin didn't win "American Idol," but he made his presence known. He stood out with a musical style more hard rocking than the typical "Idol" contestant. His first album -- "Memories of a Beautiful Disaster" -- debuted at number eight on the Billboard Rock Chart. He's hoping to better that ranking with his new CD, "Celebrate." Durbin took a break from his tour to call in and chat about his travels. There's no place like home (Santa Cruz, ...

Greece is the word fo Maria Menounos, who chats with me about travel, food & a helium tank that her family used to save all the loose coins they found cleaning nightclubs. That spare change helped her family get to Greece. Read more of my interview with the "Chasing Maria Menounos" star in the Chicago Tribune: #travel #Greece #goawaywith

Man ... that was one of the funnier shows on TV. Very subversive comedy, especially the political commentary via Burt's Bucks. Cloris Leachman was having the time of her life.
