This post for The Greatest Showman Reimagined is sponsored by Atlantic Records. All opinions are my own. The first time I saw The Greatest Showman was on a flight to Korea.

‘La Henge’ at Falls Byron – an arts program out of the box!

A giant roaming woolly mammoth, a replica Stonehenge made out of cardboard, an epic staged cardboard battle with cavemen and sabre-toothed tigers, hot box rock and roll yoga, homegrown comedy and a Howl & Moan Records stage showcasing local musicians.

Conflict Transformation vs. Transformational Travel

In my life, I have been blessed to be able to study abroad, work abroad and to travel extensively overseas. I’ve been a TEFL instructor, a tour guide and a study abroad director. I have experienced the ins and outs of the food and beverage industry on several continents. I’ve backpacked Europe and traveled alone in the Middle East. All of these experiences have the power to transform an individual. I like to refer to them as ‘transformational travel.’ However, there is one form of ‘transformatio...

A Gaucho’s Life in San Antonio de Areco

When thinking about Argentina, what comes to mind? Americans will say meat, Europeans will think about football/soccer, and South Americans will mention tango — but locals will talk about the mythical gauchos. In the middle of the Argentinian Pampas, only a 60 miles from Buenos Aires, stands a little town, to all appearances very quiet, but keen to preserve the country’s habits and customs. San Antonio de Areco was founded in 1730, and it is today probably the town that best symbolizes gauchos’...

Heartbreaking: Woman Shipped 80 Year Old Father to Denver With His Dog And No One to Care For Him But United

We hope not to be burdens on our children. Many people would choose not to let themselves reach the point where they don't know who they are and can't function independently. But we try to extend lives, and the burdens on families and on society for costs, are significant. So we wind up with people sent to the airport, where the best we can hope for is a compassionate United Airlines employee to see that they're taken care of.

Craig's Cheese Shop, Bondi Junction

Although she doesn't love eating out, almost every Saturday morning you can find Nina and Garth at their favourite cafe, Craig's Cheese Shop in Bondi Junction. "They're never friendly to me," said Nina warning me that although she had been coming for months, they had barely to crack a smile in her direction.

Some American Airlines Flight Attendants Refuse to Serve Drinks to Passengers

In the spring American Airlines started offering free alcoholic beverages to passengers seated in their extra legroom Main Cabin Extra seats, copying Delta (although Delta offers snacks too). American's flight attendants have expressed frustration. They'll say they're concerned about customers drinking too much, but the real concern appears to be having to do more work.

Increased air travel may decrease the chances of a global pandemic

The more exposed we are to each other, the less surprising a pathogen will be to our bodies.Terrorism, high blood pressure, and staffing issues threaten to derail progress. Pursuing global health has to be an active choice. None Part of the anxiety in watching the 2011 film Contagion hinges on members of the CDC watching the map of the world itself: the world is so large and filled with so much detail — nooks, corners, and endless blind alleys — that it felt difficult to get a handle on where th...

Jaws 2

In one of my previous marathons I watched Jaws: The Revenge, the fourth entry in the series, and that was quite awful. This second one is definitely better, and at least also see Roy Scheider still there, but that said, as expected, it takes a bit too long to get to the fun stuff (i.e. the shark attacking people). When it does though, it’s fun, and even the way they defeat Jaws is pretty funny. Can’t say I particularly liked it, but it was still interesting to watch as a snapshot of that era’s ...

Animal House

To be honest, this was much funnier than I was expecting — although it probably didn’t hurt that I was drinking wine while watching it. Sure, it’s considered a classic (mostly because of Belushi’s presence), but I wasn’t expecting it to have aged well, and in a lot of ways it hasn’t (rampant sexism, etc.) But if you look at it as a product of the time, there are a lot of laughs to be had, and it’s fun seeing so many recognizable actors in one of their earliest roles. And yes, Belushi is fantast...

Grease

Grease is Grease. It’s still fun, it still has a fantastic soundtrack, it’s still cheesy and corny, and it still has its charm and a great cast. Grease is the word. Grease lightning!

The Lord of the Rings

The biggest memory I have around this film is when I was younger and we were planning on watching it, a friend was tasked with renting it, but accidentally got a wrestling tape called The Lords of the Ring instead (maybe he had just called to reserve it, without seeing the box). I’ve always had mixed feelings for this film. I do find it to be quite interesting and fascinating, and it is a well done retelling (albeit unfortunately cut short) of the Lord of the Rings saga — and I was quite surpri...

Like it’s 1978

There goes another year-based movie marathon done and dusted (following: 1967, 1968, 1977, 1985, 1986, 1987). I was pretty excited to jump into 1978, as a lot of the movies I watched were pretty nostalgic for me. I ended up watching nine films (listed below), which I think acted as a good round-up of the type of popular films we saw that year — on the cusp of the blockbuster era, following 1977’s Star Wars). You can take a look at all my short write-ups for each film by clicking below, or simpl...

Offers I Don’t Think Will Be Around for Long, If You’re Interested Act Now

There are several offers right now that I don't think are going to last. Some we know won't. Others banks have hinted they won't. And in some cases we can make that bet based on past experience. Usually there aren't this many heightened offers at once, it's an embarrassment of riches, largely I think because it's getting harder and harder to get consumer attention, banks need to spend more to acquire customers and it's a highly competitive environment, when one product increases its offer oth...
