Detroit

I've lived in Detroit for 9 years this May, and I and my husband and son finally started venturing Downtown for the past years. There is so much stigma and negative speak about Detroit, that I was nervous to go down there at all, but it hasn't proved to be disappointing at all. I've really missed out on so much fun, and excitement.   continue reading

What’s up with Dogs?

Years ago my parents and I were camping at Temperance River State Park along the north shore of Lake Superior. Dad and I went for a walk down to the shore to check out the lake from our campsite. The trail went through the woods and down a slight grade. There was a turn in the trail about two hundred yards in front of us and a little black dog came around that turn and was headed straight for us. He came running to see us and we were talking to him and dad was petting him. The dog’s owner then came... continue reading

Trailer Travels

My June weekend at the North Rim was a chance to visit the annual Star Party which is held during the new moon. Amateur astronomers with awesome 'scopes share the views of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars with all the visitors and educate you as well. After taking in some spectacular views of these planets it was time to shoot some milky way starscapes. We found a great place to dry camp off of service road 22 just a few short miles from the park entrance, a large clearing about the size of 2 football... continue reading

Gordon Brown: best speech ever!

Until today I wasn't a fan of Gordon Brown.but tonight he gave the finest speech in favour of keeping Scotland in the United Kingdom of Britain and Northern Ireland . He pointed out the many ways we are better and stronger together and the miserable arguments of nationalism which are like a ' cock strutting on a dunghill '.Nationalism is about greed; ' it's our oil ' :Gordon Brown spoke passionately about the creation of the national health service free at the point of need.He... continue reading
