How Business Cards Keep You from Missing Out on Opportunities While Traveling

As a frequent traveler, whether you take your trips for business or pleasure, you can always find opportunities within your travels that are too good to pass up. They could come in the form of business proposals, potential ventures, or simply some discount offers for your next excursion. At these times, you often share your contact details verbally, on a quick piece of paper, or by having your contact saved in the other party’s phone. But verbal details can be forgotten easily, insignificant pie...

In Memory of Mike

  This morning the brocante market did disappoint, it rarely does, but today it exceeded my hefty expectations it was off the charts good. If money grew on trees and a chateau or two were at my disposable they would be full this evening. The colors, textures, variety, period pieces, the wealth of history surrounded the brocante market today. Our car was full. Maybe today was so good because a shining star looked down wished it so. A man that taught me a great deal about the antique business ...

Ship bows

A new visit to the “Palais Royal” …, but first something about the address of my blog.  I’m back to my original blogspot address. Some bad experience about a “lost blog” (for a couple of days) a few years ago made me consider using a “domain” and I got, via Google, a www-address, which you have to pay for (not much). This has to be renewed on an annual basis. I have paid, but the www-address can’t be reached: "This domain registration expired on 01/31/2019" . I spent a very long mome...

La Serena, Its Giant Lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean

I’m glad I took a chance on La Serena—it paid off. You never know, with coastal cities. Sometimes, the beach locals rave about is small and dirty, sometimes you end up in a tiny, overpriced town along with hordes of tourists, sometimes port cities are run down and dodgy. But La Serena is lovely. I didn’t have a map, so after dropping off my backpack in the spare bedroom, I headed straight to what looked like the main avenue, Francisco de Aguirre. There were two signs: “Plaza de Armas,” straight,...

Triple Amputee Purple Heart Veteran Undergoes Invasive Pat Down at Tucson Airport

The TSA itself said there were no actual active threats in the years following 9/11. However if there were the TSA wouldn't likely be able to stop them since they miss most of the contraband going through checkpoints. Nonetheless because of our fears - even our imagined ones - we've given up our freedom to travel. We have to carry papers with us and show them to authorities on demand. We go through invasive screening. And it's all become so normal we don't even question it. Continue reading ...

things i heard at the library: an occasional series: #30

At the Port Hardy Library, we've been hosting visits from the local First Nations school, from the the Gwa'sala-Nakwaxda'xw Nations. (That is pronounced GWA-sala Nak-wah-da.) The children have been absolutely lovely, and although my contact with them is brief, I'm enjoying it so much.It's especially wonderful to have the tweens and teens in the library, which is a change for our library. We've been working on digital literacy, which I've made into a bingo game. (Librarians will turn anything int...

Users complain of account hacks, but OkCupid denies a data breach

It’s bad enough that dating sites are a pit of exaggerations and inevitable disappointment, they’re also a hot target for hackers. Dating sites aren’t considered the goldmine of personal information like banks or hospitals, but they’re still an intimate part of millions of people’s lives and have long been in the sights of hackers. If the hackers aren’t hitting the back-end database like with the AdultFriendFinder, Ashley Madison, and Zoosk breaches, the hackers are trying break in through the f...

A Visit to the Holy Land: Israel and Beyond

There are a lot of destinations that call themselves holy.  With that said, few places can claim that three of the world’s major faiths call the place sacred.  The land we speak of is Israel.  We recently returned from a two week visit and want to give you the ultimate guide to seeing the sacred sites.  This will be a two part post, with the first highlighting the religious sites of Israel, and the second will be about a side trip into Jordan.  Both are must dos, and compliment each other well....
