I love the outdoors. I have some property in the middle of the woods where I go to relax. In fact, it's the only place I really can relax. At home, it's the computer, the phone, someone at the door, chores to do. You know the game. My property is…

Why Are Celebrity Tribute Bands so Popular?

Tom Petty Or Not?
This summer I went to see a tribute band that was absolutely exceptional. It seems that celebrity tribute bands are a dime a dozen anymore. Some are great, some are good and some are not so…….. Anyway, my expectations were nil since I’ve covered this area many times before. As…

Is This Camping?
I never camped until I was 40 years old. It wasn't that I didn't live in a place that wasn't conducive to camping. Heck, I lived in Washington, on the border of Oregon. I lived in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. But you know what they say about never appreciating what…
